On Tuesday 8th December 2015 myself, FS Louis Swaby , Cpl Shannon Copeland and Cdt Barnaby Brawn-Smith were taken Air Experience Flying with CI Colton.

Our day began with a health and safety brief after which we kitted out with flight suits, parachutes, helmets and flying gloves.

Once in the Grob Tutors we met and spoke with our pilots about the various aircraft instruments before taxiing to the runway and eventually taking off.

Given the recent weather the 25 minute flight provided a unique view of the city of York which neighbours RAF Linton On Ouse and the surrounding countryside as there was a significant amount of flooding along the York river.

Overall the day was very good and we are all looking forward to our next time in the air!
