That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.

Experience the daily life of a pilot as you take control during this light aircraft introductory training flight. After a classroom briefing, you will head up into the clouds and experience all the sensations of controlling your own aircraft with an expert instructor by your side.
Your experience commences with a classroom briefing on the functions of the aircraft's controls, followed by a pre-flight inspection on your training aircraft. As you take a seat inside, your instructor will talk you through the start up, taxiing and take-off, before you lift off into your first flying lesson. During the flight, feel all the thrills and spills of flying an aircraft, and soar up to an exhilarating 2000-3000ft. Following the flight, there will be an opportunity for you to discuss any questions you have on flight training with your instructor.
Due to COVID 19 participants are requested to attend alone if possible, if someone needs to accompany them please limit to one person.
The price quoted is for one person. You will be one-on-one with your instructor during your trial flight.
Flying may be cancelled in weather conditions that would make the flight uncomfortable for a novice. Please call the flying school if in any doubt. Any cancelled flights will be rescheduled for a later date by the experience provider. Please call the flying school before making your way in if the visibility is reduced by bush fire smoke.
Comfortable clothing and footwear is required to enable you to climb in and out of aircraft. High heels are not recommended.
Instructors are approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and are members of the Aviation Safety Foundation of Australia.
