My guess is that you'll be fitted for a helmet and coveralls, and then given a safety brief, and then have 45-60 mins flying experience, with an opportunity to take the controls, and to do some aerobatics.

Should be great fun - Many years ago Leeming was the base for the RN's elementary flying training - we lived at Leeming, as did the Bulldogs, and we flew daily from Topcliffe, so we did not get in the way of the grown-ups!

We received 40 mins flying at Yeovilton on a 'Potential Air Officer Experience Day'.
Then an enthusiastic chat about JSF, good chats to some trainee pilots on holdover, and a tour around ATC (was I the only one interested in that?),a walk around the historic flight.

It was well worth it

Awesome.

Okay next question. If it's just a bit of a tour and a go in a plane, can anyone think why the e-mail I received would say "Candidates should also bring Sports Kit, Trainers and Wash Kit".

The timetable doesn't mention anything that might need this??!?

The time table is as follows:

9:00 Shares
9:30 Arrive
9:45 Welcome
10:00 DVD & FS
10:30 SE Fit
10:45 Flt Brief
11:30 Fly
12:15 Land
12:45 Lunch
14:15 FAA Brief
15:00 FN100 Vid
15:30 CNR Brief
16:15 Cse Q&A
16:30 SE Return
16:45 Depart

I don't see any sports activities there...?!
