Great people, great planes and great place - starting (& hopefully finishing) to learn to fly at Enstone is brilliant

First time at the controls! I must admit that on Tuesday I didn'€™t really take in the enormity of flying, and actually taking control of the plane. It must have been nerves '€“ although I really, really, really enjoyed it. The experience was thrilling, beautiful, scary and totally out of the ordinary. But it was when I got home, and told my wife after work, and described the experience to my nine year old daughter that it really sunk it. Her eyes were wide in disbelief and wonderment. I had to sit down. The thought that I had actually flown a plane, and over one of the most beautiful parts of the country, moved the controls and it moved through three dimensional space'€¦ that is just incredible, and I still haven'€™t got over it '€“ every time I recall the flight and moments from it, I just feel a sense of astonishment. I think you are absolutely right about this as an experience, it is something I will never forget and will want to tell everyone I meet about! Thank you so much for this experience. It is truly an event in life, and something I will always remember.

Enstone's atmosphere is friendly. Whether you are a novice in aviation or whether you have 16,000 ATPL, FIR, CAA examiner, you all are there and all drinking tea. No "ra ra ra, Im a better pilot" comes across.

I choose to fly at Enstone because Kiddlington's aeroplanes were off line when I was free to start and Enstone could accommodate me. I enjoyed the first lesson and was hooked. I have stayed because it's laid back and friendly and I think an un licensed field make you a bit more reliant on your own air sense (or ground sense if there is such a thing). If you can eliminate the need to go to Wellsborne that might help a bit for the new guys.Also the range of aeroplanes is fun. The TB's are nice, the Katana was good, th eCub was GREAT and the Chippy is very tempting. One day I will let one of those microlight guys scare the **** out of me! The simulator is FANTASTIC and even if I was only starting out I would be impressed by what I could eventually do with it.

The fleet of aircraft available for training or hire is exceptional. The instructors are qualified to a high standard and the people are friendly, helpful and approachable. The clubhouse is a place to chat around a logfire and there is always much light-hearted banter over a cup of coffee! And where else could you fly to the Scillies as part of your training?

Nice aircraft, good variety of types. Aircraft well maintained. Friendly staff and club members. Good (professional) instructors. Not too far from where I live.

I came to Enstone as Pete Thorn who taught me came as CFI to Enstone I have never regretted coming as it is a friendly club and very orientated to the individual. You look after my aircraft and ensure it is serviced appropriately. I have hangarage at a reasonable price. You organise various activities both social and activities relevant to our flight interests

It's local and affordable, I used to fly from Redlands and by the time I had driven for an hour to get there the weather had changed. I do a lot more "impulse" flying rather than just planning a trip and hoping the weather would co-operate.
