Blast into the sky for an adrenaline rush you’ll never forget with this exhilarating and unique flying experience. Perfect for anyone who has ever wanted to fly a plane, this exciting treat will see you in the cockpit of a Bulldog aircraft with a real ex-military instructor! Your instructor will show you everything you need to fly like a fighter pilot, from take-off and turning to a variety of manoeuvres – including barrel rolls, loops and the Cuban eight.
Upon arrival you will be kitted out in a high quality military flying suit, before receiving a detailed safety briefing from your ex-military instructor. Once you’ve taken your seat in the cockpit of the Bulldog aircraft you’ll get to take off and practice basics such as turning, ascending and descending. Your instructor will then show you what the plane is capable of – demonstrating a variety of amazing manoeuvres – before handing the controls back to you! You’ll be able to try a variety of aerobatic manoeuvres, including the loop, aileron roll, stall turn, barrel roll, Cuban 8, slow roll, vertical roll and derry turn. After you have performed these exhilarating manoeuvres your instructor will talk you through your return to base. Your experience will end with a debrief, where you will receive a flight certificate and discover the number of Gs you have pulled.

Great Birthday Gift

5 out of 5 01 September 2014
Location: Dunstable Age: 45-54 Bought For Son Occasion: Birthday
Fantastic experience which you would never normally do in every day life, makes you realise how pilots have to cope with so many things in the cockpit and yet keep control whilst scanning every where for other craft, also not forgetting the G forces exerted even in a small aircraft at lower speeds, excellent day, can't wait to do it again maybe Top Gun with my son who bought the gift after his own flight experience.
What would you improve for next time? The only thing i can say to improve the experience is longer flying time actually in the air at the controls, my actual air time was only 15 minutes, but the program states 35 minutes .
