across the UK with
YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 15 minutes. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
You will first fly over Chat Moss, a large area of peat bog, which is thought to be over 7,000 years old. Several peat bodies have been discovered in and around Chat Moss dating from the iron age. The Manchester to Liverpool railway proved a challenge when they tried to cross the bog but a 'floating' railway line was eventually built by George Stephenson and still in use today.
It's then on to Bolton. It is said that Boltonians are the friendliest folk in Britain. In the 19th Century Bolton was a boomtown with 216 cotton mills and was one of the largest and most productive cotton spinning centres in the world. It was the target of one of the first areal bombings in history in 1916; a Zeppelin dropped 21 bombs on the town.
You will then head south after flying over the famous Macron stadium, home of the Bolton wanderers, heading over Atherton and Leigh before landing back at Barton.
Flights take place on certain weekends throughout the year and will be shared with up to 3 others. Max weight 17st. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The phone number on the voucher was not the same one to contact to confirm date of flying. Also the number was a constant answering machine, a bit frustrating. Finding the venue was very easy. The car parking was annoying as nothing informed us of having the ticket validated at the control tower, or we just didn't see it. Hoping to have lunch and watch the planes/helicopters takiing off, disappointed no food available on site. Everyone was friendly and helpful. No we didn't feel rush, arriving an hour before the flight. All equipment worked well. This was a gift from my son and daughter for my 90th birthday. I absolutely loved it, being able to see from the air the area I've lived in and walked for the past 90 years. I would recommend it to anyone , though perhaps not myself again.
Overall rating: Excellent
