The first aircraft I flew, was at Blackbushe in 2005. The school was Cabair at the time and I had three trial flights to get a feel and then I joined Lasham to gain my NPPL in their motor glider. A few years later I returned with interest in maturing my licence and converting to the PPL. The school was now called Airfirst (Blackbushe school of flying) they took in my interests and I left with a handful of training syllabuses and hopes for the future! Not so long after I had booked in for a trial flight with Jonathan in G-EVTO, a PA28 I was going to spend a lot of time in. I was hooked. The first thing I noticed was how friendly and approachable the staff were. The school prides itself on being one big happy family and every effort is made to make you part of it. Christabelle (Mum!) And her team will bend over backwards to accommodate your needs and get you solo and beyond! Secondly is the professionalism of the instructors, all of which are down to earth and equipped with a good sense of humour and a wealth of knowledge. You will get a lot out of your lessons, even a cup of tea! The aircraft are good quality and the fleet is always being upgraded. You are not going to find a better school to fly with. Be a part of the family and join Airfirst. You won’t look back.
I would like to personally thank Christabelle, Emma, Clare and Katie for booking my lessons and helping with paperwork (and the cups of tea!). A big thank you to Jonathon, Martin, James, Kevin and Steve for putting me through my paces, getting me solo and getting me through the tests.
I look forward to the adventures to be had!
