Very easy. Original booking made by family as a gift. Token gave contact details and one phone call was all that was required. As we have local knowledge it was no problem. A30 roadworks made it a little difficult and signage nearby could be better especially if approaching across moor. Staff were cheerful, welcoming and well organised. Airport was fine for the day. Plane was not new but perfectly satisfactory. Ben was most reassuring, calm and accommodating.. I felt completely at ease. It was everything I had hoped for. A perfect day with moderate wind and clear skies made for a superb view and flight. We flew over our home and along the coast from Fowey to Looe. Certainly would go again and recommend it to anyone. Ben landed us and taxied to the club house for photos to be taken by my wife. No pressure was exerted to finish and depart. Fine service as a gift recipient.
Overall rating: Excellent
Arranging the date was fairly simple. Contacting the airfield directly was very easy, and I got the first date I wanted. It was very easy to find the venue, and the facilities were good. All the staff were brilliant. Even though it was a very busy day, with lots going, the staff were all great. Friendly, knowledgeable, and relaxed.
The equipment all seemed to be good. The briefing was really good. I got to help refuel the plane, and was given a very informative (but not confusing) tour of the plane, inside and out. Put me at ease straight away.I would recommend this experience to anyone who wanted to have a go at flying. It was a fantastic experience and I would do it again. Made me think about taking proper lessons. There were plenty of photo opportunities, both before and after. We were welcome to go back to the clubhouse afterwards. For me, the whole thing was brilliant. I couldn't fault anyone.

[Sorting the date was] COMPLICATED. Having selected my choice of experience I found it time-consuming and complicated to verify the selected date was available, then make a firm booking. Very easy to find the Airfield, as I had been there before. I don't recall receiving ANY directions on how to get there. Good facilities [at] the airfield. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, especially at the Airfield. Very comprehensive and efficient briefing, answered all my questions. Excellent - once it had been arranged. Very impressed with the staff and instructors at Airfield. They went out of their way to make it a most enjoyable experience. I took lots of photos and took my time over leaving the airfield.
Overall rating: Good
Very easy sorting date, venue very easy to find and they had good facilities. The staff very friendly - everything else fine. Briefing very good. The experience it self was thrilling! We recorded the whole flight on our camcorder. The lady organising the flight was very helpful, pleasant and friendly.
