Great day out. Very good instructor, generous driving time allocation, interesting exhibitions on sight too.
A brilliantly enjoyable day! All went smoothly as clockwork. Staff made me feel welcome and the tuition was excellent. A generous amount of time was allowed at the controls and the associated museum was the icing on the cake; some great historical exhibits. make sure you take advantage of the available photographs taken during your experience; I came away with over a hundred digital images on c.d. which provides the perfect memento of a very satisfying day out. Recommended and a sincere "thank you" to all the Armourgeddon staff!
