I wish my missus enjoyed flying as much as this little one does, on one trip I had to do a not so gentle avoiding manoeuvre that frighten her! Big time! She thumped me three times before I could show her the aircraft that nearly hit us, but she still wasn't happy��. So now try and only do gentle turns to the left if possible, as she doesn't like being closest to the earth in a turn, go figure !

Now reitired thank god , looking forward to flying when the weather is good or motorhoming when itīs not, just like to get away from it all now I can take it easy.

As an ex PPL myself, I can understand her fear. The first time I was taken up in a small aircraft, the doors seemed mighty flimsy to me and incapable of stopping me falling out. The seat belt chest straps crossed the 'wrong way' compared with a car, and I didn't feel at all safe.

I solo'd after 6 hours and soon stalls and spins were being done regularly (spins did merit underwear changes though.

I reckon if your missus did some stick-time, it would occupy her mind and help her a lot. If she just did yoke without the pedals, it would teach her how to fly straight and level. Maybe she is also frightened about you becoming ill mid-flight and how she would cope, so some instruction is very worthwhile.

Hope all that doesn't sound patronising, it isn't meant to be.

I'm daft and proud of it.

There is only one difference between me and that child! I would be screaming with terror! Sorry, two differences! I would also be voiding myself at both ends!!! Lovely kid though

This is not a euphonium euphemism, btw! Such activities can be distracting while flying (though I bet Geoff Nicholson tried it!)

I like it! but highly unlikely with my missus as she would have to unbuckle herself to reach me over the throttle quadrant

She has done some stick time but always kept diving towards the ground for some reason, she prefers to read her kindle until we arrive at our destination but as I said she was taken completely by surprise by a very quick wing over that unsettled her
