Really worthwhile trip - around the Poole coastal area and over to Corfe Castle. Fantastic fun aided by excellent ground crew (thanks everyone) and of course a highly proficient pilot. Couldn't fault it.

Had a fantastic last-minute opportunity to experience a pleasure flight from Hurn, Bournemouth over Sandbanks, Swanage and Studland. The views were stunning and Jim, my pilot, was knowledgeable, calm and professional.
