Just wanted to say that I had a great weekend the other week, thanks for all your and Nancy's efforts for getting me through the training safely. My feeling is the Flybubble ethos on safety, advanced techniques, knowledgeable product reviews is really appreciated.
Best wishes, Mohammed

I would just like to say thank you to Carlo and Nancy for all their help and patience in getting me through the course. Being a little uncomfortable with heights I found their professionalism and thoroughness very reassuring.
Once again thank you for opening up such a great sport to me.
John Flynn, Blackheath, South East London
Regards my training, the quality of training, support and expertise provided by you has far exceeded my expectations.
I have no doubt I am with the best school operating on the South Downs.
I'd like to continue my training with you guys.
Gary Hunter, Colchester, Essex
Thank you very much for a fantastic three days, and even more thanks for getting my feet well above ground level on my first day.
You're instruction and safety are second to none, and I can't wait to see you soon to continue my training.
Take care, Gary

Hi Carlo and Nancy
I had a fantastic time over the weekend and still can't believe the wonderful feeling that flying can give you, and I am just a nervous beginner!
Thank you both for spending the time to teach me, I really do appreciate it.
I am looking forward to my next lessons and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the weather will be kind to us.
Once again thanks for all you have done for me.
Lorraine Eaton, Richmond, Surrey
Thank you, thank you, thank you, your instruction has been excellent, and Flybubble are professional, but yet friendly and flexible. It is so much easier when you feel supported by your school helping with the fledgling hours.
Oliver Polden, Richmond, Surrey
I was just on the phone to Lorraine and she wouldn't stop talking about what a great day she had yesterday! She sounded completely ecstatic! And she got to fly around with you! I'm so jealous!
No satisfied customers for Flybubble, only completely elated ones :-)
Jenni Fleming, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey
Thanks for a great day yesterday. I'd really like to carry on with the training and do the EP course - getting started as soon as possible... Just let me know what you need from me in order to continue!
Thanks for a great day's flying and I'll hopefully see you in a couple of weeks.
All the best, Jenni

Nick Byrne, Newhaven, East Sussex
I just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic weekend. I had a great time and specially thanks to Greg and Nancy for their excellent and friendly tuition. I will definitely be back!
I hope the weather stays as good as it was that weekend so you get some great flying in.
All the best, Nick
Paul Marshall, Amersham, Buckinghamshire
I had a lovely flight, which I regard as my first proper flight on my own... I enjoyed it immensely!
Once again thank you for everything you and Nancy have done for me, it is very appreciated. ... a wonderful experience which will stay with me forever.
I chose this course because you're ****ing brilliant top-notch fliers (and we like and trust you).
I learnt an enormous amount, far more than I expected. I learnt how to relax and feel comfortable. And as for thermalling, I felt like my technique simply took off!
The total flown was damn near 200kms with over 94km on the last two days alone!
The flying dreams have kicked in!
Taylan Pehlivanzade, Istanbul, Turkey
About the quality and level of SIV instruction you received during this Flybubble Paragliding SIV course?...
"Very high quality thanks to the confidence bestowed on me, and the interactive choice of manoeuvres. Best level for me for the same reasons."
Did you learn anything from this Flybubble Paragliding SIV & XC course?...
"Yes, lots!" "turn reversals :-)" "entering spirals swiftly and easily" "exiting spirals more calmly and controlled" "thermalling"
"practicing wing-overs and other glider contol excercises??

"Low-airtime SIV" by Julian Rayner
I qualified as a Club Pilot in the summer of 2005... Even though I'd been through the training, I didn't feel very confident when flying... I wanted to feel safer, so when someone suggested doing an SIV course I decided to look into it.
I decided to go to Oludeniz in Turkey with Carlo Borsattino of Flybubble Paragliding. It didn't take long for me to realise that I'd made a good choice...
Graham Birks, Wantage, Oxfordshire
Just arrived home from a great day on the South Downs.
Thanks for the Tandem flight. Superb.
Really enjoyed the experience and may just have to look at a couple of days tuition next time round.

Georgina Lewin, Alton, Hampshire
Harry and Hugo both really enjoyed their tandem paraglider flights and I know they would love to do the experience again. It was such a fantastic day, they both had long flights and were even able to climb up very high.
It was all incredibly well run... so definitely worth every penny!
Thank you once again for everything.
Tracy Evans, Brighton, East Sussex
I just wanted to say thanks for the fab tandem paraglide today.
It was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone, even the very nervous.
Carlo made me feel like I was in a safe pair of hands, is extremely professional and I defy anyone not to enjoy it!
Well worth the wait of the low wind the day before.
I will be signing up for the course now I know how brilliant it is.
Glad I picked your company as I was very impressed with all the instructors and how quickly the students on the course developed.
Best wishes and thanks again.
Amelie Severing & Paul Haythornthwaite, Wimbledon, London
Just wanted to say thank you very much for our tandem flight yesterday.
Carlo, you made us feel at ease rightaway and if you had said "Let's fly to France" we would have trusted you it would work. :-)
It was definitely worth the wait (and that hike up the hill)!
Recommendations have already been passed to family & friends.
