We really like this Driving Experiences Experience near Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.
Experience the thrill of aviation with this light aircraft flight based in South Wales. Kick off with a comprehensive safety pre-flight safety briefing before climbing into the cockpit of a Cessna 150 with a professional instructor to get ready for the flight. After experiencing the excitement of the take-off, soar through the skies and marvel at sensational views of the local countryside and coastline while the pilot demonstrates the capabilities of this nimble little craft. During the flight, take over the controls and become an honourary pilot under the expert guidance of the instructor – it really is one of the very best ways to experience the joys of aviation. This flight time counts towards a Private Pilot’s Licence.
