    Morecambe Bay coastal tour to Barrow & back by plane

    A very pleasant flying experience. Ken the Pilot put us at ease from the start. He was very good at explaining how the aircraft worked and was very informative whilst we were in the flight around Morecambe Bay. It was great to get a bird's eye view of an area I know quite well. I will most certainly be doing this again and recommend this flying experience to anyone. Well done Ken you are a very good pilot.

    Ken was very welcoming and put us both at ease, especially important as my friend was nervous. The cloud cover restricted our opportunities for getting in to the Lake District. Ken was a very good guide pointing out places of interest. The time flew by (pardon the pun) and I would definitely recommend Ken as an experienced, safe and knowledgeable pilot.

Ken our pilot, was knowledgeable, informative and considerate, checking we were OK, throughout the flight. He took a detour and flew over our houses and allowed mum to take the controls. She was thrilled t...
