Motor Glider Flight
Jul 2021
I treated the wife to a flight in the Motor Glider as a 60th birthday treat for her and also arranged for myself to have a flight straight after the wife had landed. What an experience it was. Ian explained what all the controls and dials were as he done his pre-flight checks. During the flight he allowed me to take control of the plane and experience the joy of piloting it. Amazed by how quiet it was and how little you had to move the joystick for the plane to respond. The views were amazing and Ian gave commentary as we went along to the North Devon coast. I can’t thank Ian enough for making the flight so enjoyable. I would recommend this experience to anyone who was thinking of having a flight.
Once again Ian many thanks. It was an unbelievable experience, I was smiling all the back home.

Amazing experience
Jul 2020 • Solo
My flight in Ian,s powered glider was my 73rd birthday present from my wife and something I had always wanted to do so on the day of my flight 20/07/2020 I was very excited and after meeting Ian who is the most experienced and friendly person we went through the pre flight checks and taxied out onto the runway.
During the 1 hour flight Ian pointed out places of interest to me and also gave me a go on the controls which as I had never done so before I found it quite hard work to keep the plane on track but with encouragement from Ian I managed to do it. Ian is a very well qualified and accomplished pilot who made me feel very safe in his capable hands and pointed out the places of interest all along the durrasic coastline as we flew along.
All in all the best hour trip I could ever imagine and would certainly do it over again.
To my wife for giving me such a wonderful gift and Ian who was very patient and knowledgeable pilot I thank you both as you made a not so old man very happy.
Thanks
John
