Extract from letter: I would like to thank you for making my 60th Birthday present from my husband such a memorable experience. My phone calls to book the flight and confirm the flight on the day were dealt with efficiently by people who appeared to be as enthusiastic as I was, including the groundstaff!
I read the book - Introductory Flying Lesson - which was bought as part of my present (along with a Logbook) and downloaded a picture of the controls for the aircraft from the internet so when the great day arrived I felt prepared.
On Sunday 22nd July (2007) I had my 1 hour flight in a Cessna 152. Neil, the instructor, appeared to enjoy the flight as much as I did - he was excellent.
If I could afford it I could easily become hooked (and that is from someone who can not even drive a car). My next adventure is to experience a loop-the-loop and barrell roll - as a passenger of course. I think that the full aerobatic experience might be too much for my blood pressure!
Please pass on my thanks to all concerned.

It was really easy a simple phone call. Was easy to find the traffic was a but of a mission as it was carnavel day. The staff were great both on the flight and on the ground. They could see I was worried about my elderly dad going in the flight they kept me informed as to how he was the whole time. The flight instructor did try and give my dad a briefing but I think he was way to ecsited to listen and nearly deaf so I don't think he took much of it in. His fault not instructors. After being in the army for years my dad had never got to fly, it has been his dream to take to the air. Me and my children decided for Christmas we would make that wish come true and although I was worried his ill health would be a problem I couldn't have been more wrong ! My dad was still in cloud 9 way after he landed. I can't thank the staff enough you really did make an old man very happy. There was no pressure on time which was great we were able to make a day if it. We took a picnic and got the while family together to support my dad on his big day. The staff were all happy to have pictures takin and gave him a log and certificate to remember the day.
