A very thorough briefing preceded a model flight in a real microlight for my daughter's birthday. Conducted very calmly and with gentle authority, the day was a treat for all of us as we vicariously enjoyed the experience, watching takeoff and landing and sharing the flight after via helmet mounted video. Pleasant people with very thorough attitudes and credentials.

As an "experience junky" my friends knew what to get me for a 60th birthday pressy. Having flown in a Cesna light aeroplane, a helicopter and a hot air balloon this had to be tried. It was absolutely fantastic. To fly over the city and see so many familiar landmarks from this angle, looking down past my boot sticking out... More

Got this as a retirement gift from my old colleagues. Always wanted to try it but it exceeded my expectations! The staff were great, really friendly and explained everything thoroughly before we started. Flew over a lot of East Lothian in a lively clear morning. What a view. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. I will be going back... More

Sometimes you have to try something new and way outside your comfort zone. The freedom of flight that you experience in these 2 seater flying machines is fabulous. and what glorious views -- a whole new perspective on the country side and the City of Edinburgh. Very professional - made to feel comfortable and confident and above all safe. Booked... More

This was a 60th birthday surprise from my amazing daughter. Though I didn't get much time to think about it she know I would love it. It was a beautiful sunny day and the whole experience was something I will never forget. Thank you Gordon for a professional and informative adventure. I would thoroughly recommended this experience.
