What an amazing experience! You really do feeling like you are flying and it's wonderful. Sam is brilliant and makes you feel totally at ease. I expected to feel nervous but can honestly say I wasn't at all. Totally recommend flying with Sam to everyone!

As the name suggests, you really do fly like a bird! At one point we were ‘hovering’ just above a buzzard doing the same as us, riding the upward moving air as the winds were deflected over the Woollacombe hillside. Absolutely magical!
