Earn your wings under the guidance of a professional instructor. Take the skies and enjoy incredible views of Sydney as you learn the basics of flight. A 30 minute trial instructional flight allows you to see how it feels to be the pilot and be in control of the aircraft under the supervision of a professionally trained flying instructor. Once you're settled in the cockpit the instructor will give you a basic explanation of the aircraft's instruments and controls followed by a lesson on how to taxi the aircraft. Get ready for the adrenalin rush of aerobatics. Your instructor will help you perform basic aerobatic maneuvers - you will sit on the controls as the instructor guides you through the manoeuvres. This is one of the few training instructional flights that allows you to take the controls to perform these feats. Then come back down to earth for a debriefing and the opportunity to ask more questions.

Please Note: Due to the high skill involved, you will not be flying aerobatic maneuvers on your own. You will be taking to the controls and guided through the maneuvers by your instructor who will be in command.
