Five blind and partially sighted young people have enjoyed a chance to experience the thrill of flying in and around Dundee.
Taking off in Tayside Aviation aircraft, they sat beside an experienced pilot in a small dual-control Piper Warrior plane used for teaching trainees.
The opportunity came thanks to Flying Aces, an innovative scheme set up by the RAF Air Cadets and funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund, where young people from disadvantaged or disabled backgrounds can experience the thrill of flight.
The instructors and the planes were provided by Dundee flight school Tayside Aviation.
