What did you get up to?
When I was a kid one of my dreams was to become a pilot and experiencing this, even if it was only for a short time, was one of the best things I have done in my life. When I arrived, the little boy inside me came out and I was genuinely so excited that I was actually going to be flying a plane! The lady at reception was ever so friendly from the moment I arrived and when I left. Before we got started, my instructor Ian asked me to help him re-fuel the plane which was interesting because I didn’t know the fuel tank for planes was in the wings! After re-fuelling, we boarded the plane and Ian explained the basic functions (believe me, there are a lot!) and then we took off for what was an amazing experience! During the flight we flew over the legendary Silverstone race track amongst all the other scenic views we had. I was fortunate enough to go on a sunny day so the whole thing was worth every second. The turbulence did scare me a few times but the excitement I had didn’t even let this phase me! Overall, I had a fantastic time and I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves a thrilling experience.
