It was very easy to arange the experience. Information was readily available on the internet and appointment was made at the aerodrome on the date required. I flew on this date, a phone call in the morning was quickly answered and we were assured that the flight would go ahead. When we arrived all the facilities were good from Car parking to Coffee. From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the friendly and professional staff. The briefing was succinct, informative and friendly, the operator was very knowledgable, friendly but professional. I would /have recommend(ed)this to friends and relations. I was very hesitant before but am now a big fan, the whole experience was exciting, thrilling and enjoyable. We were encouraged to take lots of photographs and continie the experience as long as we needed/wanted. Thank you. I shall never forget this experience.
