Well, what a fantastic day we had at the Gloucestershire Airport Charity Open day! No one could have asked for better weather and the turnout was really impressive.
Staverton Flying School had a stand in the main terminal hangar, where G-EK was on show. We had lots of visitors who wanted to take a closer look inside a light aircraft and of course chat to us about planes and flying – our favourite subject!
For those that wanted to really experience the thrills of flying we were able to give them a short taster in the form of a 15 minute trial flying lesson. Our instructors Kim Hampshire and Richard Thwaites were kept busy with lots of people keen to sit behind the controls and see the sights from 1500 feet. And it wasn’t just our instructors that got involved; all the pre-flight briefings were completed by our very own students, Duncan Stephenson, Adam Knights and Paul Jones. Thanks to you all for helping make the day so much fun and such a success.
You can see a photo of our stand and some of the team above, and a few more photos from the day in our gallery section at the bottom of the page.
All in all, a brilliant event in aid of the extremely worthy cause; Help for Heroes.
