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.
You'll be on your way to reaping the rewards of having a pilot licence after completing over two hours of private instruction in a light aircraft with a qualified pilot. Feel the exhilaration as you take control and experience flight from the pilot seat.
Your flying lesson commences with a classroom briefing on all you need to know to enable you to control the aircraft on your first lesson. After the briefing the instructor will take you through the pre-flight inspection of the training aircraft prior to you sitting in the pilot seat and preparing for your flight. Your instructor will talk you through the start up taxiing and take-off before you take to the skies. The flight is to the south of Moorabbin airport. During the first 30 minute flight you will have hands on experience in flying the aeroplane. Following the flight there will be opportunity for you to record your flight in your pilot logbook.
Your second and third flights will follow a similar format with the pre-flight briefing and inspection followed by a 60 minute flight. You will have the benefit of your own pilot headset and logbook, which are part of the essential tools required to becoming a pilot. Included in this package is 2.5 hours dual instruction in a light training aircraft, a headset and a Pilot Log Book.
