Wow! What a thrill! I had a long wait for my microlight experience thanks to Covid lockdowns and weather hiccups, but it was well worth that wait, and Great Western Airsports willingly extended my experience voucher timescale. Instructor Brad is very affable, and sets you at ease straight away. He gave a brief introduction on the ground then we got straight on with a quick & smooth take-off into the air for this 30-minute flight near Bath. Brad described each of the controls and demonstrated them before handing over to me to try them out flying the plane. This was a brilliant birthday gift from my partner - can’t thank her enough - and I thoroughly recommend it.

My 11 year old daughter loved the experience of flying with Brad over Bath. He took all the necessary COVID safety measures, explained the flight procedures and off they flew for 30 mins. My only comment would be the lack of facilities for sitting inside; so take a flask of warm drinks with you. The flight was 5*, just the facilities let it down, but don't let that stop you. You can always buy hot chocolate at the Farm shop over the road.

Perfect socially distanced birthday party gift for my 11 year old daughter - a fly past her school , our house and the stunning countryside around Bath. It's pretty basic on site, so take food & drinks, and wellies too as it was quite muddy. However, Brad was delightful and the experience was fabulous. tip: nip to the farm shop over the road for hot chocolate. If there was a warm place to sit & wait I would give this a 5, and in the summer this would not be an issue.

Fantastic birthday present for my wife - really friendly and worked hard to rearrange things to suit us when original date was cancelled due to poor weather.
