I took a trial flight with instructor Roy in June 2013. I can't give them enough praise. My interest was in scouting schools to spend my money on gaining an NPPL. I shall most definitely be coming to Airbourne to do mine. Roy, after plenty of time chatting about the aircraft, took off and I quickly had control. I have solo experience in Gliders and Roy adapted the flight for that, letting me take over and use the aircraft knowing that I needed little instruction on the basics. I spent a little more time in the air than I had paid for which from my perspective was fantastic. After a thorough flight, excellent demonstrations and plenty of talking through controls, instruments and local landmarks, we headed back. Once on the ground I took over again and taxied the aircraft back to parking. I'll most definitely be back. THE PLACE to go for an experience flight and your NPPL. Highly recommended.
