Deep dive into the aviation world and learn how to fly a light-sport aircraft! After a short on-ground briefing, sit in the best seat in the house and take to the skies with your instructor by your side. Feel the thrills of flying an aircraft yourself and admire stunning Hunter Valley region below.
Whether you've always dreamt of flying or are seeking a career in aviation, this 60 minute flying lesson will give you a hands-on taste on what it's like! After a pre-flight briefing with an experienced pilot, jump into the pilot's seat and put your newfound skills to the test. Fire up the engine and get a feel for the handling as you taxi the aircraft to the runway. Once airborne, your instructor will hand over the controls and you'll be flying the aircraft yourself in no time at all! Feel all the thrills and chills of controlling the plane, whilst taking in the rolling hills and stunning vineyards of the Hunter Valley region below. Your trial flight can be entered into your logbook if you wish to pursue a pilot license.

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.
