Amazing experience After a tour of the airfield we were then taken to the planes where we were shown around the whole aircraft and explained how it worked. We then ran through the pre flight checks which I helped in. Once we were in motion I was given most of the control and was even able to take off. Once airborne I took the controls under the instruction of the pilot until it was time to land when I handed it over rather than landing myself. The staff were very friendly and gave a great talk after on how to become a pilot and even provided lunch. Amazing day out and recommend it to any want to be pilots. 17 May 2014
Best birthday present ever! Went to Blackpool Intl Airport, Experienced fantastic customer service from all of the staff. Pleasantly surprised that I could be accompanied by my girlfriend. The pilot let me take the controls for at least 90% of the flight. I would recommend this experience to anyone and I would love to do it again! Thanks 13 August 2012
