Hi, thanks to all concerned, for a fantastic flight experience! I enjoyed every minute and was exhilarated at being allowed to play a part in the landing under his expert guidance. I am still as high as a kite and can't wait for the next time.
To all it concerns I would like to thank you for my flying experience that I had this morning. It is something that I enjoyed immensely and the flight was made more enjoyable by the knowledge of the instructor of the area that we flew over. Yet again, many thanks!
I want to agree with what most other people have written on here, I had a 1 hour experience flight and the time flew over. The weather was perfect and we flew out toward the Lake District, headed towards Workington then along the coast, before refuelling at Kirkbride. Then a short hop over Carlisle, then landing back at Carlisle Airport. I am not surprised how people get hooked on flying because it was amazing! Bob, who took me up is very reassuring and very funny! Funds permitting, I would love to do it again. I want to thank Carlisle Flight Training for helping me tick off one more thing off my bucket list.
We, myself, my wife and our 12 year old granddaughter, really enjoyed our flight experience. We had a 1 hour flight which covered the North Lakes and Carlisle. I was able to fly the aircraft and didn't scare the family! All in all something that we will repeat and recommend to others. Excellent!
Flew from Kirkbride due to the ongoing works at Carlisle Airport. Really enjoyed the flight and conversations with Bob, absolute top man, could have done with spending more time on the mission, remembered all the questions I meant to ask during the flight afterwards and should have asked Bob more questions about himself too. Please don't take this as a threat, I'll be back! A terrific 70th birthday present from Steven, Denise, Rebecca, Josh, Rachael and Michael. Many thanks all!
Thank you to all at Carlisle Flight Training for an exceptional day flying over the Cumbrian landscape. Very lucky with the weather and really enjoyed the "craic", you made it all seem so straight forward and safe! Best wishes to all.
Just a few words of appreciation to say how much I enjoyed my flight last Saturday. We were so lucky to get such a nice day for it considering the weather on Sunday. The family enjoyed the day out as well, and the photos were on Facebook by the evening! I have found out a lot more about our plane on the web and loads of photos. I must say it was a lot more comfortable than a draughty old Tiger Moth from my cadet days. I have recommended the experience to some of my friends, so you may be getting some repeat bookings. Thanks once again and best wishes.
Alan, many thanks for your patience and a great lesson. I intend to carry on and get down to some real work and sharpen up.
My thanks to all at Carlisle Flight Training for an excellent day, especially when I discovered my daughter Kate could fly with me. I was very lucky to pick a day with good weather which made my flight most enjoyable. A special thank you to my instructor, who immediately put me at ease with words I wont forget, "I've got the pedals and throttle, the rest is up to you", that made my day! Thank god he didn't repeat these words for landing as the wind had increased a bit. I have a feeling that I will be back in the not too distant future! Fantastic, again, many thanks.
Many thanks for looking after us on Sunday when you took Jean, a disabled 80 year old, and our daughter Karen on a flight. Jean had been worrying, and yes fearing it since it was booked, but she thought it was all fantastic and sorry it was all over so quickly. She wishes you to please thank the pilot for being so kind, helpful and informative. He obviously did a great job, and I would not be surprised if Jean does not do it all again.

Fantastic start to our week 'up norf'. Thank you. Really enjoyed the flight and of course, the banter. Experienced and knowledgeable. We both had a great time.

Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for my flight experience. Nerves of steel taking someone like me, who has never even been in a plane before. I will definitely be back for another go!
Many thanks to the team (and Lloyd) for such a warm and friendly welcome. Great relaxed atmosphere - so different from larger airports. Thanks for your patience on the occasion of my first ever flight at the controls.
Thank you for a wonderfully instructive half hour which went a lot quicker than I thought it would. My lesson was fun and I learnt a lot about the basics of flying a plane. My wife would never have let me take off and fly, but I am glad she bought it for my 60th birthday. I would recommend it to anybody.
Absolutely fantastic flight! Wife and son enjoyed it again, I'm counting the days till my next lesson. To anyone wanting to learn with family, my advice is get your family on board and you're laughing, literally. Many thanks to all involved! See you soon.
Yesterday’s Fantastic Flight
Thanks for a fantastic lesson, had a great flight, Dad wasn't looking as green after picking him up from Kirkbride lol, looking forward to seeing you all again ;-)
A big thank you to Carlisle Flight Training and my instructor who was fantastic and put you at ease so that you can enjoy a great flight over the area. This was a present for my 50th birthday but I will not be waiting that long before going back.
I was given a training flight as a 60th birthday present, and although I was a little nervous at first, the pilot and the friendly people at CFT, made me feel very welcome and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it, and now have a great memory of my birthday, thank you all very much, I can not recommend you highly enough.
Absolutely brilliant! Many thanks to the team for making my flying experience outstanding. Will definitely recommend Carlisle Flight Training to everybody I know and meet. Hoping to return soon.
Just wanted to say thank you for a most enjoyable flight with you last Monday. I did thoroughly enjoy it and with the benefit of your local knowledge I saw much more than I would have been able to if flying alone. I would also add that I was most impressed with your whole operation - I wish more operators were as friendly as yours. The Archer was a delight to fly albeit not as fast as a 235 yet that is probably a good thing as I could take my time and enjoy the landscape and sights, in particular Spadeadam. Many thanks again to you all.
To everyone at Carlisle Flight Training, Thank you so much for an amazing experience. I think I picked a perfect day for my flight as it's rained ever since. Hope to visit you all again soon.
Many thanks for the 2 x 1 hour experience flights to prepare me for a Spitfire flight from Cumbernauld. Flight was over the Southern Highlands out to Corryvreckan including a rapid descent and close look at a frigate in the Clyde and a look at a "puffer" at the Crinan Canal. The return was via a bealach between 2 hills and also had a rainbow surrounding the trailing edge of the port wing south of Ben Lomond. We finished off with several aeros over the airfield. I had control for 15-20 minutes! Fantastic!
