This was a surprise birthday present from my wife. Absolutely superb. Everyone at the airfield was very friendly and helpful to me and to my wife as she waited. The flight itself was fantastic. Many thanks to my excellent instructor, David, who was patient, encouraging, and very clear in his instruction. I learned a lot during my flight, and had ample opportunity to practice the basic flying skills he taught me. I really enjoyed the whole experience.
