Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • 1.5 hours of light aircraft training
  • Sydney Flying Club cap to remember your experience

You will depart Bankstown Airport after your instructor has given you a thorough ground briefing and lodged a flight plan. With you at the controls, your instructor will guide you over Parramatta and north to Hornsby where you will turn right and fly past the Bahai Temple towards the magnificent northern beaches. Your instructor will handle all radio calls and by this time request clearance to enter Sydney Controlled Airspace for your flight to Sydney Harbour. Turning right again, you will fly directly to the harbour where you will be given clearance to orbit over the harbour between the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. From your aircraft you will have the Sydney CBD laid out below you with spectacular views.

Your return flight to Bankstown will take you back the way you came for a safe landing at the Airport.
