Rated 5 out of 5 by Exhilarating A real hands on approach showing you the basics of flying a light aircraft. Made me feel that I was in control of the flight from takeoff, but with the knowledge of an experienced instructor guiding you all the way. Would like to do it again 12 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Experience I was really pleased with the amount of time, that I was given, being in control of the aircraft. 25 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Overall this was an enjoyable experience. The instructor was obviously experienced and knew the aircraft well. Considering this was an introductory flying lesson and not merely a joy flight, some commentary by the instructor when he has full control as to what he was actually doing with all the controls and why. For example, during the somewhat complicated task of landing. I believe this would have been of benefit to a first time student. The instructor provided some feedback as to how I went, which I found encouraging, and also explained the procedure to obtain a pilot licence. I am considering taking further lessons with with this company. Thank you for the experience. 21 April 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thoroughly enjoyable As this was a gift, I was very happy with the experience. The Instructor, Davide, was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. Would definately recommend this experience to others. Thanks. 6 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Experience! What a blast! I do a lot of flying as a passenger but I quickly learned there is nothing like taking the controls yourself. The staff were friendly and reassuring. Loved every minute of it. Would certainly recommend this to anyone even thinking about having the experience of flying. 25 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic experience, better than imagined The whole experience was great. The staff were very friendly right from the beginning and the flight experience was a lot of fun. There is always that concern with something like this that your time at the controls will be severely limited, but that was not the case. From about 10 seconds after take off, I was handed the controls and remained in control for the next 30minutes until right before landing. It was a very enjoyable experience and can say that flying is highly addictive! 19 March 2013
