    Fly to Shobdon for lunch and return

    What a fantastic experience! I booked this for my Dads 50th birthday and we had the most amazing and memorable day. Bruce was a fantastic pilot, making us feel at ease throughout the entire experience and was just a lovely person all round to accompany us on this day. Me and my dad are already discussing doing another experience day like this again with Bruce!

    Fly to Lee on Solent with short walk to the beach

    I had the pleasure of experiencing a truly exceptional trip lead by Mr. Bruce, and I can't express my gratitude enough. Every moment of the journey was filled with joy and cheer, and it had an especially positive impact on Maji(My wife). This day has become a cherished memory that Maji and I will carry with us as we grow older together. Mr. Bruce's friendly and admirable character added a special touch to the trip, making it even more enjoyable. I am eagerly looking forward to staying connected...
