Interesting change.

Motor gliding was an interesting change for me, having sampled flying by both light aircraft and by glider in the past. The machine used for this flight was superb - light and responsive, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, which was further enhanced by my gentle and friendly instructor.

Great fun! I was originally nervous but the pilot was super friendly and settled any nerves! Before I knew it I had the stick and was flying the plane! The views were exquisite I even had a tour of the area with the pilot knowing lots of facts such as where David Beckham's house is!

I was given this experience as a birthday present as I am an adrenaline junkie at heart! I couldn't of asked for a better gift! My family came to watch me and the team at the venue were so friendly! I was able to take the controls and fly the plane myself which was crazy!

Great present for Dad

I myself didn't go up, but my dad did and has been something he's wanted to do since I can remember. He had such a great time and was so pleased. Time ran over whilst he was in the air which added to it as he got more time in the sky! Would highly recommend!

20 Minute Motor Glider flight.

I had a fab day! Despite my confirmation email confirming Monday at 11am, they were expecting me Sunday 11am! Eventually got to fly about 2.30pm Monday afternoon. Didn't matter I had nothing else planed for the day. Lovely people, great day. Would recommend it to anyone. Just check they have your booking correct. I would have given them 5 if the booking was correct.

Brilliant! The friendly people at Enstone made a life times wish very special. Being from an age where boys were interested in anything mechanical, I found the instruction very informative. Having spent hours playing with Flight Simulator, that just doesn't compare with the experience of flying a real plane.
