An aerochute gives you a flying experience like no other! If you have ever wanted to experience the thrill of free flying, your time is now. The Aerochute is one of the most innovative ways to fly and likely to be completely different to anything you have experienced before!
Your aerochute experience begins with a pre-flight briefing. Your instructor will explain the aircraft controls, and outline the fundamentals of piloting an aerochute. Then it's out to the runway for pre-flight checks. After the checks have been completed its time to strap in for takeoff.
Once in the air you can take in the beautiful views of the surrounding areas. You then have the option to take the controls and fly for yourself. The aerochute can fly in Australia up to 5000 feet legally. Your trial introductory flight is your very first entry into your Pilot Log Book if you choose to continue to have lessons so it could well be the start of a lifelong love affair with the sky.
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to their policy.
You will be one on one with your flight instructor.
Flying may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions which would make flying dangerous. Please call your experience provider the day prior to your booking to confirm your flight.
Flying suits, gloves, helmets and an intercom are provided. You should be prepared for the weather conditions of an open cockpit and suggest participants wear long pants, a jacket, gloves, sunglasses, sunscreen and sturdy footwear.
You will be required to sign an indemnity form on the day and a temporary RA Australian Membership. Your name and address is required for Flight Docket records. This flight record will be the first entry to go towards a full pilot's licence if you wish to pursue a pilot training program.
This experience takes places in Werribee, 25 minutes south of Melbourne, VIC.
