I decided that I would like to take a flying lesson. I was supported to research companies and the prices of taking flying lessons both on line and over the phone.
I decided that I wanted to do this during the summer and the best company to take the flying lessons seemed to be Strathaven Airfield. They were helpful and understood what I wanted and how scared I was.
So, I booked the flying lesson and asked some other people if they wanted to come to see me fly, and was happy that they wanted to come. We hired a mini bus for the day and we took a picnic with us.
On the day, I was looking forward to it, but I was scared too.
On the day, I was looking forward to it, but I was scared too. I arrived at the airfield on time and the pilot showed me the plane and all my friends also had a look inside and outside the plane.
We were all so excited. My friends all had to get off the runway and let me get in the plane. I waved to everybody and off I went. FLYING!!!!!! ME!!!!!!. Everyone under me were waving, cheering and taking videos and pictures.
I couldn’t stop smiling when I landed.
I couldn’t stop smiling when I landed. I took the controls of the plane, I flew it and I steered it. I enjoyed it so much I will be doing it again. The weather on the day was nice and on the way back to Edinburgh it absolutely poured down with rain. The sun was shining on me that day.
