what exactly will i get?

To all future pilots and aviation enthusiasts, discover what it’s like to become a Pilot.

A Cessna 172 introductory flight for one pilot and one observer including a pre-flight briefing and safety check with a professional flight instructor. Following the flight, if you decide to continue to learn, we will give you detailed information on follow up training to a full Private Pilot Licence.

Your pilot experience will begin on the ground where the instructor will familiarise you with the aircraft. After a walk around and pre-flight inspection which covers safety procedures and aircraft controls, you will enter the aircraft sitting in the left-hand seat, the seat usually reserved for the ‘Pilot in Command’. 

After an introduction to the cockpit, controls and safety brief, you will taxi the aircraft to the take off point. Your instructor will conduct and talk you through the take-off and landing. Once airborne, with breath taking panoramic views, your instructor will show you how the controls work in action, and then under his/her expert direction, you will control the aircraft by yourself and experience the exhilaration and unparalleled freedom of flight.

What’s Included?

  • Begin to learn to fly a Cessna 172 in an hour long introductory flight lesson including a pre-flight briefing and safety check
  • One ticket includes one pilot and one observer nominated by the pilot
  • Experience the thrill of flying an aeroplane under the supervision of a flight instructor.
