Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Our pilot Trevor Parish was professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. He also let me fly the plane, we went over Richmond, Scorton, Catterick Village, Leyburn, Yarm etc. I would highly recommend Teeside AeroSchool and I will definitely be booking another flight.

I bought a trial flight voucher for a friends 60th birthday and retirement gift. His wife and I went along as passengers, excited for such a special experience.

Pete the pilot was brilliant (this review is not at all a reflection on him) and we had a really enjoyable flight on a route of our choice but at no point was my friend offered to take control of the aircraft.

We didn’t say anything at the time as not to cause any embarrassment, thinking maybe we had misunderstood what I bought but I checked when I got home and the voucher said “ Experience the thrill of flying an aeroplane.
Your trial flight experience will begin with a short briefing from one of our Flight Instructors on the main controls, covering the effect of the control column, the power and rudder, before heading out for your first lesson”.

I emailed 4 or 5 times asking for advice wondering if there had been an admin error and didn’t even receive an acknowledgment or reply! My friend emailed 2 or 3 times and (after responding to an advert to buy more lessons) got a reply saying they don’t say you get to fly it on your first go, it’s up to the pilot but if you buy more you can?! Not what is on the voucher!

For added context the company was called North East Scenic Tours when I bought the voucher.

I will remove this review if the company have the courtesy to reply to my emails to resolve this, as it’s left us with a sour taste and I feel embarrassed I promised a once in a lifetime experience, which just did not happen.

What a fantastic experience my daughter Samantha has had today, taken up to Sunderland, Newcastle and Durham area by pilot/instructor Stephanie - she was kept at ease, given the controls and enjoyed every minute of it. Safe to say we will be booking again.

Also all of the staff we met today were also amazing. Instructions given prior to arrival and on arrival clear and everything went to plan.

Fabulous day all round.

Absolutely brilliant tour - Fantastic value for the money - the staff were all friendly and very helpful. Pilot was Trevor Parrish - he was an amazing host, professional throughout and even allowed my son to help with the flying. The weather was the BEST ever which made the day more memorable.
Highly recommend to anyone who is contemplating about this company. We did the Riverside Stadium Tour.

A thoroughly enjoyable flight over Roseberry Topping and Redcar coast. Trevor was an excellent pilot with me, husband and Dad having a really good trip. Amazing views from the air. Well worth it. Many thanks

Great morning out with pilot Pete.

Took in Hartlepool, Durham and Newcastle.

Great experience

Little two seater was a bit daunting at first but all part of the fun.

I flew with Peter (instructor, with over 20,000 flying hours) to Whitby, and back to Teesside.

The whole experience of dealing with Carole, Andrew, and Peter was excellent, from booking and confirming the flight (they called me on the day to confirm that the weather was good for flying).

Over Whitby, Peter took the controls so that I could get some photos (remember to take your camera/phone).

Fully recommend using Scenic Air Tours North East
