Sheffield is profoundly famous as the greenest city in England. As a frequent walker enjoying wandering around the Peak District, I am fascinated by the vibrant cluster of architecture and natural landscape from above.
I am luckily enough to take a ride on a private plane during weekends with my friend as he has just completed a Private Pilot Instruction course.
He is doing Aerospace Engineering at our university with a Flight Training module. The module features 5 hours flying time at the Sheffield Aero Club. Students can proceed to a full instruction course to obtain a National or European Private Pilot License with an additional one-off cost.
Sheffield Aero Club is located in Netherthorpe Airfield, Thorpe Salvin, near Worksop. We took a train to Shireoaks and walked about 20 minutes to reach the airfield.
I was a bit nervous to experience the take off as it was a windy day. To my surprise, the take off was less shaky than I thought.
The following photos are taken on the plane. I find it really fascinating. And, I hope you will enjoy seeing them.
