If you've ever wanted to try piloting an aircraft or take your first step towards learning to fly, this 30-minute flight experience is the ideal opportunity for you. Take off from Traralgon and take in the sites of the Latrobe Valley and greater Gippsland from way up high during this guided lesson.
Take to the skies for a lesson on piloting a small modern Light Sport Aircraft during this Latrobe Valley Aero Club learn-to-fly experience. Beginning with a short explanation from your qualified flight Instructor, covering how to control the aircraft and what to expect in the cockpit, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you have about flying, to ensure you're fully prepared for your flight. When the aircrafts ready to go, strap in, start up and take off on this exhilarating adventure. Once airborne, under the guidance of your instructor, you can start flying the aircraft, your first step towards potentially qualifying for a pilot's licence. Your route is adjustable, meaning you get to fly where you want and enjoy the view while you're up there.
There will be ample opportunity to take photos from high in the sky and you can even bring along friends and family who can take photos from the ground, spectate and relax at the Aero Club overlooking the airfield and the Great Dividing Range.
Only the instructor and the single participant are permitted onboard the aircraft for the flight.
Friends and family are welcome to take photos, spectate and relax at the Aero Club overlooking the airfield and the Great Dividing Range.
Flights are highly subject to weather conditions. Due to the nature of aviation forecasting, weather conditions will not be known until the morning of the flight. If the weather is unsuitable, we will endeavour to call you on the day prior to your lesson. If you are unsure if your flight can go ahead, please feel free to call ahead and check with us.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
