Experience the best seat in the house featuring the best views in the world! Discover the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge from the front seat of a Pitts Special open cockpit biplane then head all the way up the coast to Broken Bay for some optional aerobatic thrills.
Climb into a flight suit, fasten your headphones and helmet, and jump in the front seat of an open-air cockpit Pitts Special S2A aerobatic biplane, sitting in front of your pilot. There will be plenty of time for your family and friends to take photos of you as you prepare for your flight. Once secure, your pilot will prepare the plane for take off. During this time you'll hear all the calls to air traffic control and be able to speak to your pilot through the intercom.
Take off from Bankstown Airport and climb over the outer suburbs of Sydney, reaching a cruising altitude of 1500ft. Soar over the sprawling Olympic site at Homebush Bay before circling north over Hornsby and St Ives. Once granted clearance to Sydney Harbour, you'll get a birds eye view of iconic landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. You can wave at the Prime Minister at Kirribilli, fly higher than the eagles at Taronga Park Zoo and salute the sailors on Garden Island. You may also get a chance to check out Rose Bay and the world-famous Bondi Beach before heading north over Middle Harbour, the Spit Bridge and Manly, following the coastline to Long Reef. At Long Reef you'll drop to 500ft and skirt the peninsular up to Palm Beach and Broken Bay, then climb back to 2500ft for some optional aerobatics. Try a loop and a roll to give you a view of the world from a completely different perspective.
This is what the Pitts is made for and your pilot will give you a taste of the G-Forces that Baron Manfred Von Richtoffen himself may have experienced during air combat. Landing back at Bankstown, you'll be hard pressed to stop smiling for the rest of the day. This is an experience you'll never forget!
