Flying the real thing.

Went up for an hours flying with Flight Academy Barton in a Cessna 152 on 03/06/2011. 

It's a small trainer/private type aircraft and it was great to actually gets my hands on the controls. The Instructor got us airborne and then gave me a domonstration of the controls. After that it was "hands on" for me. After some practice we flew to Southport, down along the coast then inland towards Winter Hill. 

All too soon time was up and we headed back to Barton. The instructor did the landing of course, after all that is the hard bit!
