My first time flying in a two seater aircraft and it was awesome, from the initial greeting from Ben through to the final touchdown. I was lucky with the weather with fantastic scenery across the Gower and Pembrokeshire, landing at Haverfordwest for fuel, taking off again and finally landing back at Swansea. Being allowed to take control of the aircraft on several occasions and flying around my home village. I would recommend this experience to anyone, great day!

Had an amazing time at my trial flight today at Cambrian. ALL of the staff are welcoming, patient and professional. Fantastic views from my flight and you can fly as much/little as you like (obviously following regulations). Perfect for aviation enthusiasts or just a great day!

Cambrian Flying School (Swansea) – I booked an hour flying lesson as a treat for my Niece’s birthday, (with me and her Grandfather in the back of their classic 4-seater Cessna Skyhawk). Dave Jones, the very experienced Chief Flying Instructor, was fabulous. A really nice guy, he quickly put everyone at ease and fielded our endless inane questions for the hour. The flight was awesome, we’d been worrying about the poor weather which was forecast but the clouds cleared and we had excellent views and sunshine for an hour. It is remarkable how much you see from 2,000 ft and how quickly you cover the coastline at 100 knots. We were all enthralled and my Niece had a beaming smile from ear-to-ear for the whole flight and for some time after. I’m sure that taking the controls of a plane at 13 years old was quite a boast when she returned to school on the Monday. Fairwood Airfield was quite busy with small private planes taking off or landing regularly and a lot of spotters / spectators. The resident burger van was doing roaring trade. Cambrian is generally very pleasant to deal with, my one minor grumble, they’re not always very good at responding to email enquiries, possibly a case of ‘too many cooks’ working on one email account and assuming other people had dealt with emails? The slots can get booked up pretty quickly on holiday periods so you need to bear that in mind. It’s not cheap but I felt that the costs were quite reasonable, all things considered and it’s not something you’d do often unless you’re after your Pilot’s Licence. I’d highly recommend the experience as a would-be pilot or passenger. Go on, treat yourself, (and take a camera!)

My children treated me to a flight experience for my 50th birthday present. I was lucky enough to choose a nice clear sunny day (Good Friday). The staff I encountered - Dave & Dave who were both charming and helpful. The operation is first class from start to finish. My experience was a 1 hour flight in a two seater Cessna, Dave explained everything about the aircraft before we boarded and then inside before and during flight. I was able to take plenty of stunning photos while in the air and take control during flight, it was brilliant. I truly recommend to all who enjoy flying, you get a real feel of how it is for a pilot. I`m still buzzing from a great experience.
