What our customers think

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.
When I decided I wanted to learn to fly, I spent ages researching all the options available. I came across Purple Aviation, took my first lesson and was immediately impressed. They have modern, well maintained aircraft and all my dealings with them have been first class.

What a fantastic experience. Got a one hour flight as a present for my 50th Birthday.
