Light Aircraft Training Flight - 2 Flights - Launceston

Launceston, TAS - Show on map
Tristar Aviation Co

Highlights

  • Two training flights in a light aircraft
  • Classroom lesson plus hands-on flying time
  • No experience necessary

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.

What's Included?

  • Two training flights in a light aircraft
  • Professional instructor
  • Classroom briefings
  • Pilot logbook

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.
