Thoroughly enjoyed every minute flying an A320 from Belfast to Manchester. Dave, the instructor, was great. He explained all of the basics and the acted as copilot during the flight. Wonderful experience for anyone who wants to feel like a pilot without years of training.

I have bought this experience as a birthday gift for two flight mad men in the family. They both thoroughly enjoyed the experience, very realistic. Dave is superb as an instructor. I would highly recommend this.
