With a real professional next to you, you’ll not only be in the best hands but have a unique opportunity to learn the controls of the aircraft from one of the finest instructors in the UK. As you fly over the scenic Somerset countryside, you’ll have a chance to get a feel for the controls if you feel up to it.
