    Lakes Windermere & Coniston Tour

    Brilliant experience, Ken has very good local knowledge so kept a very good commentary going about everything we could see. He made sure that I knew what was happening and the importance of the communication with the air traffic controller. The flight was very smooth only a little turbulence from the mountains. The takeoff and landing were very gentle. Great experience which I would love to do again.

    Lakes Windermere & Coniston Tour

    Ken was clearly a very experienced pilot. The flight was a gift for my wife’s 60th Birthday. He took time to explain everything about the operation of the plane along with rafts of information about what we could see as we flew towards the Lake District. We have flown before on holiday flights but nothing like this, time & money well spent. Can’t recommend highly enough. Brilliant!
