Feel the exhilaration as you take control and experience flight from the pilots seat. Live the dream and take to the skies with an expert instructor who will assist you in flying the aircraft for your first lesson.
The lesson commences with a classroom briefing on the effects of the aircraft controls, plus all you need to know to enable you to control the aircraft on your first lesson.
After the briefing, your instructor will take you through the pre-flight inspection of the aircraft that you will be flying before you take your place in the pilot's seat.
Your instructor will talk you through the start up, taxiing and take-off, then you take to the sky for your first real flying experience. The flight is to the south of Moorabbin airport and you will spend approximately 30 minutes at the controls.
During this time you will be able to have hands on experience in flying the aeroplane. Following the flight there will be an opportunity for you to discuss any questions you have on flight training with your instructor.
