    Piper Super-Cub - Flying Introductory Lesson - 1 hour

    An interesting hour combining a flying lesson with a tour of the stately homes of Kent. Alex proved to be an excellent instructor and coached me through most of the flying, although he did draw the line at taking off and landing. The experience was very relaxed and informal. We both had a good laugh at my efforts to get in to the aeroplane, and I would advise against the Super Cub if you are in any way physically challenged (the Tiger Moth was easier!) but once aboard the whole thing was delight...

    Delve into the past on a 20 Minute Vintage Biplane Flight

    What a simply amazing experience! I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of my flight. Alex was very reassuring and spent time introducing me to the aircraft and all of the instruments - he was very professional throughout. I knew exactly what was going to happen at all times and the loop the loop and barrel role was the ‘icing on the cake’ for me! There was no pressure to do this though and Alex was very keen for me to have the experience which I wanted. My husband who went up after me wholeheartedly...

    Alex was very professional, outlining the aircraft, it's features and the flight itself. From booking to post flight, communication was on point. The flight itself was a very memorable moment and a knee in a lifetime opportunity for me personally. Highly recommend :)

    Delve into the past on a 20 Minute Vintage Biplane Flight

    Absolute class! I booked an aerobatic experience with Alex for my wife's birthday. The original date we had booked wasn't suitable weather, but Alex kept us in the loop leading up to the booking keeping an eye on the weather in the hope it would clear. We were forced to re-schedule, and fortunately, we had great weather for the new date. Upon arrival, Alex welcomed us and went through everything clearly and concisely. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the experience and is keen to go again!
