Starting from $49.99 per person - Trial Introductory Flight Experience
Ready for your very first flight?
Our Trial Introductory Flight is an ideal way to discover the joy of flight, learn more about aviation, and what it takes to become a pilot.
This offer will be delivered in one of our two seat training aircraft. Your time at the controls counts as flying time towards your Recreational and/or private pilot’s license. (Aircraft flight time will be deemed as dual when you make your first entry into a Pilot’s Logbook- available for purchase $35.00)
Begin your flight experience by meeting with your instructor, before heading to the aircraft. Together, you'll inspect the surfaces, controls, and instruments of your aircraft before the engine is started. After take-off and once at altitude, you'll be in control of the aircraft for the entirety of this 15 - 30 - 60 -minute flight (under guidance from your instructor, of course). What a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the world of aviation.
Throughout your flight you will orbit Western Port Bay above French Island, viewing the coastline from 1500 feet, taking in some spectacular scenery!
