Rated 5 out of 5 by A wonderful first time in my life experience! It was a wonderful experience for me, as a first timer to be up in a small aircraft, or rather a glider, and an open one at that. The fun started with us rolling out of the hanger and onto the runway, The fun part was the take off, the simple G-force maneuvers, and the landing. The exhilarating part was when Chris - The Instructor (and a good one at that) let me take the controls for most part of the flight! I am even thinking to get a license for a Microlight, as the aircraft, maintenance, flying are all so cost effective..A must do for all those who think gliders are wonderful! 28 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by To take the controls of an aircraft with no experience necessary - great fun! I did not know what to expect, I had never spoken to anyone who had done it before. It was a gift to me so that got me there to start with. It was an experience to be taken seriously, but at the same time was exhilarating and fun. I particularly enjoyed controlling the steering, manoeuvring through gaps in the clouds and the feeling of being free to go where I chose, not to mention the spectacular view! I hope I get another opportunity. The staff really know their craft (pun intended)! 19 March 2013

Rated 1 out of 5 by Do not book! I booked this for my boyfriends birthday and it took me six weeks of trying to contact the operator before they FINALLY got back to me and I was able to book a date. And then - it was months in advance and there's still no guarantee that it will go ahead (due to weather, which I completely understand#. We were cancelled twice - the second time I don't understand because wind and weather conditions were perfect. This cost us money as we had to travel to the experience and had booked accommodation which we were obliged to use #which isn't cheap in the area). These were the MOST unprofessional tour operators I've ever dealt with. And unfortunately, my boyfriend never got in the air. 29 November 2012
