Flew out of High Wycombe Air Park on my first flying lesson. It was brilliant. The controls were explained to me before we walked across the Tarmac. The instructor was great, giving me control of the plane flying across the Bucks countryside. I would recommend this t anyone with an interest in flight.

Location: Derby Age: 25-34 Bought For Partner Occasion: Christmas
I did the flight at Tatenhill in Staffordshire. It was a very professional place and well organised. I arrived and went straight into a one-on-one briefing, and before I knew it we were in the air (after posing for photos of course). In the air, the controls were explained and I soon took over as we flew above Alton Towers and St George's Park. I'd definitely do it again and would consider taking flying lessons (if I had the money to spare!)

Amazing Experience

Location: hinckley, east midlands Age: 25-34 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
I absolutely loved this experience, the best birthday present I've ever received. I had the lesson at Coventry airport with a company called almat aviation. The pilot that took me was very informative and helped me through every step. I was impressed at how much time you actually get flying the plane. In fact, other than taking off and landing, I was allowed to do everything including taxi'ing (no idea how to spell that) and flying the plane for the full 30 minutes over Draycot Water near Rugby and back to Coventry. The half hour lesson also counts towards gaining your private pilots license which is a bonus if you can afford to continue haha.

Nice day great views. More of a flight around the countryside than a lesson. Had controls for about 5 mins. Nice experience going up in a light aircraft and that's about it.
What would you improve for next time? Just say it is more of a ride than a lesson.

Hi Thanks for your reply, we really appreciate your feedback! I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your day but I apologise that you didn't get to fly the plane for that long. These experiences are run by one of our suppliers and the exact experience can vary dependant on various factors including the weather conditions and the capability of the flyer. I am sorry that the experience didn't meet your expectations, but I hope that you still had a good day!

Went to the Shoreham location, and it was amazing. I had been a little nervous before, but when we got there I was offered an upgrade plane for £15 which I did, because it meant better views out of it when in the air. Great instructor, let me take over the steering and pedals pretty much straight away once finishing taking off. Got to fly over my house as well! Absolutely amazing experience, thank you to my instructor Ian who was great too.
