A great experience and thoroughly enjoyed. There is a short training session on what to do inorder to control the plane and then the flying experience starts. The instructor was brilliant . The time in the air is 30 minutes and therefore there is enough time to enjoy the experience. The is a cafe on site for family to wait . Would definately recommend and would do again
what a brilliant day! I have flown loads of times from Newcastle international airport on holiday but flying in a two seater plane was a big change we flew over the city centre of Newcastle and down the river Tyne to Tynemouth then back up.We flew at a round 1500feet you see everything so clear unlike a holiday jet i was aloud to take the controls and flythe plane for around 5min turned the plane left the right it was fun, i would like to thank the areo club very much for making my 50th birthday a brilliant day!
Best experience ever! Would recommend to everyone. You really do fly the plane yourself
This was from SANDTOFT AIRFIELD, Lincolnshire NOT Blackpool Staff & instructor very friendly.Excellant, exiting experience & will do again at some point!
Loved the experience and will probably do it again. Couple of hiccups - when this was booked I intended flying out of Finningly, when I tried to book this was no longer an option only two airports available. The other was in setting the booking up I was getting emails from lots of different people/organisations some didn't know that I had booked an extra seat on the plane and others wanting my EX xxxx reference number - I couldn't find it anywhere, all this leaving me unsure as to whether I had a plane waiting on the day ready to take two people up.
