The pilot was welcoming and informative. I enjoyed the feeling of freedom in the air and appreciated the uninterrupted views of the pleasant countryside below.

Dave and Elea were most welcoming they made you feel at ease. The flight was brilliant Dave made you feel at ease while up in the air. The views where spectacular and it was interesting to view from the air what you don't see on the ground when travelling by car. The sandwich and soup after in the café was an excellent deal and much appreciated after the exhilarating flight.

I just loved it all ~ flying high and able to see the fields, the villages, the towns and the activities around them all. Wonderful to see the woodland, variety of trees, rivers and use of the land for buildings, agriculture and leisure. It was like watching the geography, history and development of society all in one flight. To see all this and feel so close to being a bird in flight. Just fabulous!

Dave was kind, friendly and knowledgeable about the microlight craft, the flying of it, how we were progressing and the landmarks beneath us eg Chatsworth House, quarry caves and Lee Westwood's mansion. He was Very aware of health and safety without making it onerous so I felt totally safe. The whole process went very well. The event was a total delight throughout. Thank you Dave.
