    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Highlights
    • Incredible views of the glasshouse mountains and surrounding area
    • Take the controls of a microlight aircraft and fly yourself
    • Friendly, professional instructors

    What's Included
    • 60 minute lesson in a microlight aircraft
    • Tour of the aircraft and pre-flight briefing
    • Flying suit helmet and headset

    Your experience starts with a tour of the aircraft, explaining how the controls work and what to expect from your flight. After a few formalities, you will be fitted out with a flying suit, helmet & headsets (so the pilot can talk in the air without shouting) before getting ready for departure. On take-off, you will be surprised how little runway microlights actually use & how quickly they climb, before you head towards Bribie Island with spectacular views of the Moreton Bay Islands. Flying along the coast of Bribie Island you may see various kinds of sea life such as dolphins, turtles & sharks. Head inland and fly to the Glasshouse Mountains to see if anyone is climbing to the top - your views will be a lot better than theirs & with much less exertion! Finally return to the airfield and glide down for landing .

    During the flight, your instructor will demonstrate how the aircraft is controlled and you will have the opportunity to have a go yourself. There will also be plenty of time for you to admire the spectacular scenery and take photos should you wish.
