"That was amazing - thank you! I was still buzzing the whole way home!" - R.H.

Bertie is patient and encouraging particularly through those frustrating first steps when you think you will never get the hang of things. Once you get to know Bertie you will realise that he is a mine of information and experience, is well respected by his peers and is a thoroughly decent chap. He tutored me through EP then CP ratings putting up with my daft questions along the way. He takes time to introduce you to other members of the free flying scene as you come across them when out training which soon helps you feel a part of this friendly bunch." - I.F.

"Firstly let me thank you again for a great day yesterday, I know the weather had a good part to play in it but if it wasn't for your superb coaching techniques the whole lot would have been wasted! - I'm still on a high here!" - B.McN.

From an experienced paraglider pilot watching a newly-qualified Club Pilot and former student of First Flight:
"Told you this before but have to say again, A** has a great skill in handling his wing in demanding conditions. As he's only just qualified this has clearly a lot to do with his instructor. Well done, you deserve a lot of credit." C.D.

"Big thank you for yesterday. It was more than I was hoping for." C.N.

"It was one of the best experiences of my life and I’d definitely love to continue." D.D. commenting on a taster day.

"That was far better than I expected." B.T. commenting on a taster day.

"Thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable day - I am still smiling!" R.N. commenting on a taster day.

"Thanks for Friday, it really was a fantastic day, way beyond what I expected from the taster day." J.K.

"I had one of the best days I have had in a long time... Thanks for a truly great experience" S.C. commenting on a taster day.

"Many thanks for a great afternoon's fun. You have a lot of patience!!" J.S. commenting on a taster day.
