Fantastic experience. Dave was friendly and welcoming, and also reassuring. He could not have done more to make this a thoroughly enjoyable outing.
Definitely considering learning to fly here!
Very nice flight, instructor friendly and informative.
This flight was a first class experience, made all the more enjoyable by the friendliness of the instructor who very quickly made you feel very much at ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending this activity to anyone else.
This was a 60th birthday present for my brother! He thoroughly enjoyed the experience and was reassured by the pilot before and during the flight! He hasn't stopped talking about it! Great experience and well worth the money! A*
