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.
Enjoy a coffee in the Terminal lounge and then 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.
