Historical News from The POM Flying Group.


Birthday wish comes true for Craig Petterson!

I "wish" I could Fly................(blowing candles out!)
Craig last flew about 20 years ago with his friend also named Craig who got his PPL at an early age.
His "dream" has always been to one day have a Private Pilots Licence but in the meantime his long-term partner Helen  surprised him with a trial flight at Humberside airport with "The POM Flying Group" in a 4-seater Piper PA-28 Warrior for his 40th birthday in May 2014!

Helen and Craig's youngest son Josh occupied the back seats enjoying the flight and capturing the experience...
watched by Helen's Dad who after working at BAE has experienced over 700 flights as a passenger over the years!

Craig said he loved flying again and has since got his model planes back out of hibernation and given them a test flight as a 2nd best to hopefully flying in a real plane again...one day!

Thank you so much to the friendly and helpful staff at "The POM Flying Group" for making a "wish" come true and partly making a "dream" come true also - an excellent offer and experience for all and hopefully for Craig a 40th birthday to remember!!

Love is in the Air...!

A romantic couple were left feeling sky high after a Trial flight with The Pom Flying Group!

Kevin Metcalf proposed to Tracey Richardson on Valentines Day during their trial flight from Humberside airport.  When flying over Central Grimsby area he popped the question and Tracey said yes!

Tracey from Boston said: " I had no idea and was really surprised. The ring is beautiful and what happened has been so amazing. The flying lesson was also brilliant and I had a go at taking off and landing."

Kevin bought Tracey a gift of an hours trial flight in our Piper Warrior G-BPOM with Dave Gibson as instructor.

 All at The POM Flying Group would like to wish them both all the very best for the future.
