Flying Lesson in a Light Aircraft
We don't do joy flights. We do it better. YOU actually get to fly the aircraft!
Take a training introductory flight in our Texan Top Class 550. Feel what it is like to be a student pilot for the day as one of our experienced flight instructors take you through the basics as you fly around the beautiful Sunshine Coast.
You will enjoy the view from the highest office on the coast, and experience the thrill of flying from a height that allows you to see from the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast to the superb views of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Look out for your 500 foot low level experience too, and feel the adrenalin surging through your veins!
Your flying lesson commences with a briefing on the functions of the aircraft controls plus all you need to know to enable you to control the aircraft on your first mission. After your briefing, the instructor will take you through the pre-flight inspection on your aircraft before you take your place in the pilot's seat. This does not count towards you flight time !
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 Caloundra airport and you can choose to book a 20, 30 or 60 minute flight. During this time you will have hands-on experience in flying the aeroplane. You will fly up to an exhilarating 2000-3000 feet on your flying lesson! Your welcome to bring your camera to capture the breath taking views.
Following the flight there will be an opportunity for you to discuss any questions you have on flight training with your instructor.
