An Introductory Flight is the first step for anyone wondering what it feels like to fly an aeroplane. 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.
Back on the ground, you will be issued with a certificate to commemorate your day. Gift Vouchers are available for 50 minutes flight time. All vouchers are valid for 60 months from the date of issue.
