An Introductory Flight is the first step for anyone wondering what it feels like to fly an aeroplane and will count towards your Private Pilot's Licence (PPL) if you decide to continue your flight training. At National Flight Centre we offer a choice of 30 minute or 60 minute introductory flights.
Your first lesson starts with a pre-flight briefing from your instructor covering the safety aspects of the flight and giving you a general introduction to the features and controls of the aircraft you will be flying. All our aircraft are equipped with full dual flying controls.
You will be provided with a headset so that you can talk with your instructor and hear conversations between your instructor and Air Traffic Control during the flight.
Your instructor will perform the take-off and landing and, once the aircraft is in the air, you will be given the opportunity to take the controls and experience the thrill of flying at first hand. If you live in the vicinity of the aerodrome, and depending on the duration of the flight and the constraints of Air Traffic Control, it may be possible to arrange a flight over your home.
Back on the ground, your instructor will issue you with a certificate to commemorate your day. Gift Vouchers are available for 30 minutes or 60 minutes flight time. All vouchers are valid for 6 months from the date of issue.
