This was our second trip and his was just as good as the last time, fantastic for kids to get into the planes and the staff are very patient with them. There is also a flight simulator which my boys loved. Well worth the trip.

A rare opportunity to clamber into the cockpit of a huge variety of aircraft, plus an opportunity to try a simulator under the guidance of a pilot. Lots of lovely old boys to talk to with a humbling wealth of flying experience.
