Yaaaaahooooo! Huge thanks to Adventure 001 for an awesome aviation adventure! After oodles of research (buying several helicopter books and visiting local aerodromes...) I finally booked an hours lesson (thanks to my brother Rob) at Redhill Aerodrome (Surrey) in a Robinson R22 Helicopter. The Capt. (pilot) was fantastic and had an enthusiastic manner, giving clear instructions on the basics of flying a chopper. I had read up a little and think he was pleased with my knowledge (he tested me on one aspect of rotary flying) I got to fly over the Superb Surrey countryside as the pilot demonstated some of the exitin' manouvers a helicopter is capable of - including an 'auto rotation' (simulated engine failure) with 'power recovery' I then had a go at all the controls one at a time before being given the chance to fly the chopper myself for a while! I felt like Howlin' Mad Murdock from the A-Team...as I told the actor who played Murdock-Dwight Schultz when I was lucky enough to meet him at a Convention recently!)....I would love to fly some more....maybe re-train as a chopper pilot!...too many 'earth pounds' at present...who knows....) Oh well, Anyhoo, heh,heh,heh - I have 1 hour logged on my private pilots licence and the pilot wrote 'Good start, nice straight and level flying' on my certificate..nice! My brother videod the takeoff/landin', have put on my channel on Youtube.....What an amazing Adventure001 experience indeed! I love it when a plan comes together...! Thanks again, It was fun...more importantly it was educational! Howlin' Mad Emma.

Hello! I visited today with my three young children, my sister and her small daughter. We were really impressed with the model village and the railway. The whole area is so well kept and the attention to detail in the models is amazing! We thought that the cafe offered good value for money, unlike so many places with a captive audience, and that the playground was brilliant fun. We also really enjoyed the light railway. Many thanks for a fun day, even in the rain. Best wishes, Vicky
