During your 30 minute flight over Brisbane you will get to fly the aeroplane and experience the sensations and thrill of flying. Your experienced instructor will demonstrate and guide you through the basic handling and manoeuvres of a new recreational aircraft.
Your friendly instructor will go through a complete ground briefing before you take to the air. During your 30 minute flight in the local area you will take control under the close supervision of your experienced instructor. This will give you a 'feel' for the machine in its natural environment and you will find it surprisingly easy. You will only be asked to do things the instructor knows you can easily accomplish and absorb. During the flight you can relax in the knowledge that your instructor will handle the landing at the end of the flight.
The time spent flying counts towards your Pilot Certificate, Recreational Pilot Licence, Private Pilot Licence or even your Commercial Pilot Licence.
Allow around 1 hour for the whole experience, this includes a 20 minute pre-flight briefing and 30 minutes flying time.

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.
