My grandfather bought me an adventure flying experience for my 18th birthday, and although there was originially some difficulty in organising the flight due to weather the staff couldn't have been more helpful and flexible! When I eventually did fly it was such a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone! I'm currently saving up for my... More

Have a great time here every weekend. The friendly staff welcomes you with open arms and the amazing instructors challenge you from day one. Always wanted to fly? Then definitely sign up for the trial lesson and you'll be flying within minutes. Looking for something more extreme? Then sign up for the aerobatics experience.

We got to do some amazing rolls too! I just can't recommend this place enough! I was nervous as this was an unexpected gift, but after this time i'll definitely be coming... More

As a surprise gift I was given a voucher for a 40 minute trial flying lesson in a Cessna at Cambridge Aero Club. With no prior experience of flying a plane, or even expecting to have any (!), I must say that all the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The pre-flight briefing helped put my mind completely at rest... More

For anyone who has ever flown in an aircraft, travelling on holiday, visiting relatives or for business, then this experience offers a real insight as to what happens at the very front front of the aircraft. The Cessna 172SP is a wonderful aircraft to fly in, comfortable, clear sight lines, easy to follow instrumentation, and responsive. However it is without... More

Great that you had a fantastic flight! It's awesome that you were able to enjoy the comfort and high spec engineering of one of our modern Cessna 172's. Sarah and all the team were delighted to help you and your wife to take to the skies - and catch some spectacular views in the process! Many Thanks! :) More

Fantastic in every way. The booking process is simple, and despite a cancellation of the first booking due to weather, they were incredibly helpful and friendly in re-scheduling. Instructor was great, and I'll never forget playing around clouds - reminds me of THAT scene from Flight of the Navigator. 100% recommended - I'll be staying on and doing my PPL!
