Calling all aspiring aviators! Take control of a light aircraft during not one but two flights in the pilot seat! After classroom briefings and pre-flight inspections, you'll head up to the clouds over Launceston and experience the incredible world of piloting.
Your experience begins 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 procedures, before you lift off into your first flying lesson. During the 30 minute flight, you'll feel all the sensations of flying an aircraft, and soar up to an exhilarating 2000-3000ft. Following the flight, there will be an opportunity for you to record your flight in your pilot logbook and you will be given an aviation textbook to read prior to your next adventure in the sky. For your second flight, you will be given a pre-flight briefing on how to fly the aircraft straight and level, before performing the pre-flight inspection and experiencing a 60 minute lesson.
Please note: Due to the popularity of this experience, weekend appointments book well in advance. If you have a weekend date in mind please give advance notice.
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 flights.
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.
This experience takes place in Launceston, TAS.

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.
