Product review: Top by , 30 Nov 14 5/5 Excellent "It was arranged by my partner. We took a taxi to the aerodrome..The driver knew the way and dropped us directly in front of the right hangar. Catering, toilets other facilities are sufficent. We are Germans and not so familiar with the English language. We were surprised that the pilot took his time to talk with us about our intention to fly the Harvard and even private things. Conversation was calm and unrushed, and he gave us all time to relax a little bit and to reduce the excitement. The pilot continued with his calm style during the briefing. He explained all the essential instruments in the cockpit, told us how to strap into the seat and the procedure in case of emergency. Finally he told us about the commands "follow control", "give control" and "take control" as preparation to steer the aeroplane by the passenger. Of course everybody has his own imagination before such an event. I was not sure what would happen. Everything was possible. In Germany we have not got Warbirds and where we do have the regulations are restrictive - only a "cross-country" would be possible. But he (the pilot) offered us loops and rolls and did very narrow curves. The biggest surprise was the time to steer the aeroplane by yourself. My intention was to bank to port or starboard in a 90 degree curve and that's that. But it was possible to get control over minutes. That was wonderful. I enjoyed it so much! We had plenty of time to take photographs and film with the camera. Thanks to the pilot and his crew for the hospitality and special greetings to the tower crew. "
