Wow! My girlfriend purchased the border city tour (Carlisle) for my birthday. Every part was amazing and the pilot was very knowledgeable and answered every question in detail. He actually let me assist in take off and I was able to fly the plane solo once it was in the air. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Breath taking views all round.

We flew over Hadrian’s Wall in a Cessna 172, a small four seater plane piloted by Ben. We were fortunate to have a lovely clear sunny day with excellent visibility. Ben was an excellent pilot and guide who enhanced our enjoyment with his knowledge of the Wall and the surrounding area. We felt safe throughout. Most of the flight was around 2000 feet and the main forts and castles etc could be clearly seen. It’s a great way to see the wall and we really enjoyed it.

Flight along the wall as far as Chollerford. Brilliant view of Wall, forts, milecastles etc - really made sense of it all. Fantastic. Ben and Alastair freindly, helpful, welcoming, informative. Had to re-arrange because of weather but no problem and well worth the wait. Tiny plane. Loved it.

Gordon was our pilot for our Sons first lesson at Connel Airport and made us very welcome. He briefed my Son on the basics and was professional in all aspects of the lesson.
The whole experience was very relaxed and in all we spent over two hours in his company, more like two and a half.
Border Air were very accommodating with the timings of the lesson and advised us on the weather so as to make the most of the lesson, we previously cancelled due to poor weather last minute with no problems.
Owen our Son is now saving up for the next lesson and thoroughly looking forward to it.
Thanks Border Air for the service and professionalism.

Excellent flight with Border Air earlier this week. Joined one of my friends as part of a Christmas voucher gift and was a fabulous experience. Nothing too much trouble and a brilliant trip over the villages near Carlisle.
