    My first thought when I saw the plane was, "INTREPID!!! You are one brave cookie!" I think it would be a great experience to fly in one that size though, so I'd give it a go. :D

    Will look forward to hearing about your visit when you return!

    I guess that I`m in the minority here but I just love the experience of flying in small planes.
    The first time was when my DW and I flew in a 10 seater over the Grand Canyon a few years ago and every so often the pilot would bank the plane over at a steep angle so that we could take some photos. I was really enjoying this bit although my DW said that it made her a bit :eek:

    My second experience was when my DW arranged for me to fly in a WW11 two seater Spitfire as a 40th birthday present.
    This was piloted by a squadron leader from the RAF who went through his display routine with me on board which he carries out at air shows c/w barrel rolls and loops etc.etc.
    This was an amazing experience and he even handed me the controls several times which was quite a privilege.

    Terry,

    That's a Britten Norman Islander. Quite a nice little aircraft actually. I just wish my DW wasn't so scared of flying! :sigh:

    Anyway, first class on that little beastie looks a bit like this:

    While coach looks more like this:

    I would LOVE to do this. Not sure if maybe I'm not too old though.

    Now that we're a wee bit older, perhaps something a bit more sedate would be better. This one's in Australia but I know they're available in the UK and possibly even here in the US! :thumbsup:

    As far as I'm concerned, that's REAL flying. :yes:

    I know that you can have a go in a WW II era plan here. Issy had it arranged for her Dave. :yes: The pilot of that plane too allowed Dave to have control for a bit, I think but I may be wrong.

    I really love the idea, but going fully upside down makes me totally ill so that would be out for me.

    The Grand Canyon experience sounds great Slowhand!

    I am very impressed Tom, that's exactly what it was! Nice little plane but a bit squashy.

    We had a different on on the way back - will find a photo and post it! It was bigger - it even had an aisle! :thumbsup: No IFE though! :thumbsdown::tongue:
