I had Lee take my sister in law and brother out a a gift from DTV to Alnwick and back through dusk. Lee was excellent at keeping in touch throughout the whole process, accommodating and helpful. As far as the trip went, they have told me they had an excellent time, the views were superb, Lee took great care of them, and an enjoyable time was had!

An evening flight with Lee from Durham Tees Valley to the Lake District, Morecambe and Blackpool was truly amazing. It was a beautiful sunny evening with unlimited visibility. Being able to recognise individual buildings from the air, added a lot to the experience. Lee was once again excellent company and did everything possible to ensure that I enjoyed myself. Don't miss a chance to fly with this gentleman.

Great flight today! Actually the flight have been changed for 2 times due to weather but this doesn't matter at all. He gave me to change date as I want to. I was picked up at in Newcastle and after flight dropped me at my house. He asked me where I want to fly over, so we flown from the airport to Durham, Penshaw Monument, Sunderland, South Shields, North Shields, Tynemouth, St. Mary's Lighthouse, Blyth and then fly back via Newcastle and Angle of the North. The flight was really amazing. Not just sight seeing, he also taught and explained me about aviation such as aircraft checklist. I felt really happy and enjoy the flight. Absolutely recommended to fly with him.

Great flight with Lee up the coast from DTV to Amble and back. The weather wasn't great but that didn't spoil the experience for me simply confirmed that I must book again - soon! Highly recommended - you couldn't be in nicer hands (and the landing without flaps was pretty good!)

Lee met me exactly as agreed and escorted me to his aircraft. The flight was most enjoyable, with slightly windy, but sunny and clear conditions throughout. We enjoyed good views of Durham Cathedral, Newcastle City Centre and the Tyne Bridges, followed by Newcastle Airport and the Northumberland countryside, before turning towards the coast. We then flew South along the coast over Whitley Bay, Tynemouth and South Shields, before returning to Durham Tees Valley Airport. Lee proved to be a pleasure to fly with, being an excellent host and determined to please his passenger. All in all a most enjoyable experience.
