Rated 5 out of 5 by An exciting experience A wonderful experience especially considering it was a picture perfect day in Sydney. Felt comfortable during the whole experience, the instructor was very knowledgeable and adjusted to suit my needs. Unfortunately didn't get to fly directly over the CBD due to traffic control restrictions however the alternate route was just as good. Just wish time did not go by so quickly. Definitely recommend! 18 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Intro to Flying Whilst we exprienced difficulties beyond the control of the pilot and the club it self, the team went out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable in the new surrounds. My experience has been rebooked with ease and I am looking forward to joining my pilot for a thoroughly pleasant flight up to the northern beaches and around the mouth of the hawkesbury river. 1 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by fantastic really enjoyed the experience The young pilot paul went through the working of the plane and before I new it i was going down the run way and pulling back on the yoke and we were up in the sky like a bird. it was the biggest rush i have had for quite some time. We flew for about an hour and i did most of the flying. Which was great i was relieved when Paul said he was going to take over the controls to land the plane. What a buzz fantastic experience would recommend to anyone. 16 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of FUN!! I was fortunate that the instructor was fun, friendly, and had a great attitude – he never treated me like just another one-off client. The flying time was a full hour and the experience was complete with instruction and explanation, and he encouraged me to fly all the way from take-off to landing. 7 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Red Ballons flight Best experience iv had, staff were all great, Aaron my instructor answered anything i asked and explained where we were going and what was happening. He gave me control of the plane as often as he could which was great. I'd go back any day and have this experience again! 21 December 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great fun Looking to get a feel about what flying is about? This is the sort of experience you want. Weather wasn't the greatest the morning of my flight but once we got underway my instructor George walked me around the plane, helped me understand all the instruments and radio chatter, and not least helped me take control! 15 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very enjoyable and hands on I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The instructor was very knowledgeable and patient. He encouraged me to take the controls as much as I wanted and explained what was going on and what to do. He was also happy to point out landmarks along the way. Unfortunately it was a grey day, so the harbour wasn't looking its glorious best but nobody can be blamed for that. The only issue I had was that the experience started 40 mins late. Luckily I didn't have anything urgent to do afterwards. When my numbers come up on the lottery, I'll be back for more lessons! 23 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I had a great time, it was very much a hands on experience. Even though the weather wasn't ideal John the instructor sugested some changes to the flight which gave me the chance to experience a variety of touchdowns and takeoffs. Thankyou to John and the welcoming staff at the Flying Club........ 17 July 2012
