Learn to fly a real aircraft with this fantastic flying lesson experience. Your expert instructor will guide you through a full briefing when you arrive at your chosen airfield. You will be taken up on your first of two 30 minute flights where you will observe as your instructor talks you through piloting the aircraft, showing you the basic manoeuvres you will need to learn in order control the plane yourself. Back on solid ground and it’s your turn to put your new skills to the test as you finally take the controls for the second of the flights. The instructor will be on hand to guide you as you soar through the clouds at up to 2000ft. Upon landing, you will be de-briefed before being presented with a signed certificate that can be used towards a full pilots licence!

Location: Age: Over 65 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Christmas
Our instructor was a highly experienced and friendly person who explained everything to us before we got into the air. Once airborne and at 2,000ft, she let us take control of the aircraft and encouraged us to "experiment" with how the individual controls affected the aircraft's flight. It was a great pleasure to fly over my house and to see everything around where I lived from the air. I have flown in a hot-air balloon, a glider, a microlight aircraft, a helicopter and a Boeing 737 flight simulator, but this was probably the best flight experience of all. I enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend it to anybody.

Mrs Biggles
Location: south West Age: 55-64 Bought For Husband Occasion: Birthday
Instructor absolutely fantastic BUT...... Pre-flight Brief- shown a wooden model of a plane and told if you push the joy stick up then the plane goes up, etc. Not exactly the "full briefing" as described on your website. Then told had to share flight with another student. this is not made apparent in your blurb. Had to then have first part of lesson with person in the back I didn't know which added to my nervousness. Then on the return flight I had to sit in the rear which made me extremely nauseous. Had not expected to have to spend half the trip in the rear. So this part of the trip was completely ruined for me. Your website info also states "Upon landing, you will be de-briefed before being presented with a signed certificate that can be used towards a full pilots licence!" Neither the de-brief or presentation of a certifcate happened. I was told that certificates weren't given anymore. Thank goodness the pilot/instructor was such a lovely man. The 2 stars are for the instructor. If it hadn't been for him I would have only given 1.
What would you improve for next time? Better information on the website so that people can decide if they want to share the experience with another student.
