What our customers think

We love to hear what our customers have to say.


My wife bought me an adventure flight experience and I had a thoroughly enjoyable 90 minute flight up the coast and around the Borders. Thoroughly professional outfit, the aircraft was brilliant, Terry was a great instructor and I’m absolutely hooked. Wish I’d done this thirty years ago.
