Product review: The flying visit. by , 9 Nov 14 5/5 Excellent "I contacted the operator with ease. The date I requested was available. Operator was efficient and helpful. The directions to the venue were clear and accurate. The facilities available were very good. The staff were all pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. The equipment appeared to be well maintained. At no time did I feel rushed. The operator was knowledgeable and responded to my questions. I felt total confidence following the briefing. I would describe the experience as thrilling and exciting. I would certainly repeat this experience and recommend it to others. The only negative comment was that flight duration was closer to 20 minutes not 30. I had the opportunity to take photos of the event. As the weather was so favourable I did not rush away after the flight. "
Experiences4all says: There is often confusion about flight time. The time you fly is the time you would put in a logbook, it's from when the brakes come off to when they are back on again, and it is very accurate.

What's included

When you arrive, you will be met by a member of staff, who will welcome you to the School and introduce you to your flying instructor who will do a pre-flight briefing which will cover the route to be flown, an explanation of the cockpit instruments and a short brief on the effects of the primary flying controls : just to give you an understanding and an introduction to your first handling of the controls of an aeroplane.
Once the instructor has settled you into the pilot's seat and helped you into your harness, he will start, taxy and take-off the aeroplane into the training area. Once in the air, the instructor will demonstrate, and then give you control of the aeroplane and ask you to repeat the manoeuvres under his guidance. You will also have the opportunity of taking in the scenery and to experience the thrill of just flying the aeroplane around the sky. After landing, your instructor will answer any questions and, if you wish, comment on your flying aptitude. You will then be presented with a 'Certificate of Achievement'.

Dave Ebanks takes to the skies

(Reviewed by Dave Ebanks 08/07/2015)

Very easy and the staff were very friendly. I looked at three dates around my birthday and two of them were available. I was also given lots of advice. It was very easy getting there as I used a venue in an area that I was fairly familiar with. Also when I contacted the flying school and informed them of where I was coming from they told me a route that was even quicker than I had anticipated.
The venue had adequate toilets and also facilities for refreshments. The staff were excellent and friendly, my family and I were made to feel very welcome. We had time to watch a couple of other flights before it was my turn. However I could not wait to have a go!!
The plane was fine and I did not feel rushed. In fact I was surprised at how much flying I was allowed to do, including climbing, descending, circling left then right, and even aiming for the runway and taxiing. The briefing was very helpful as it made me aware of what we would be doing and what the trainer wanted me to do whilst in the air. He also answered my questions. I found the experience amazing as I do not usually enjoy taking off when we go on holiday so was a bit apprehensive about this part. however we were up to the correct altitude in no time, and as for being able to actually fly the plane, I thought I would just hold onto the controls for a short while however I was first shown how to carry out manoeuvres and then allowed to complete them.
I could not stop smiling and would say to anyone who is thinking about it to just book it and enjoy!! As for whether I would do it again..... OF COURSE I WOULD Cannot wait!!!We had opportunities to take photos both before and after, we were also able to go inside the cockpit of a very large Vulcan bomber and also learnt about its history and take more pictures. It was a great family day out.
