We love to here what our customer have to say.
Storm took me for a spin around Northumberland in May and now i have the bug to fly again. A very enjoyable experience. Will be back in Oct and hopefully take some lessons.
I had a microlight flight this Summer. It was an amazing experience. We flew up to Dunstanburgh castle and then down the coast swooping low over the heads of my family walking on the beach at Hauxley. Highly recommended. Thank you.
I had a 90 minute flight with Storm, just having a look around Northumberland and taking some photos. Fantastic experience – and a great egg banjo sandwich at the end! Thank you.
Thanks very much Purple Aviation I’ve had a lovely afternoon in a flexi-wing flying up the Northumberland coast and across the Border to Eyemouth, stunning views all the way. Gordon was great and happily flew over all my family and friends waiting for us up there.
Thanks again. Brilliant!
Just to thank you and Gordon on behalf of my wife Judith.
