Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly an aircraft or do you know someone whose dream it is to fly a plane? If so, then this is the perfect gift for you!
Take control of a TECNAM P004 advance ultra light plane with your instructor by your side and see how it feels.
Following the safety checks, you'll board the aircraft (with you in the pilot's seat, of course!) and you'll go through a series of ground checks, including a radio check, local air traffic, weather state and wind speed.
Your instructor will then taxi the aircraft into position, and once you have the all-clear from the tower, will start the run-up and away you go!
Once airborne, the fun part of the flying lesson really begins. After a demonstration of how to maneuver the aircraft, it's over to you to take control. You'll be in control, practicing gaining and losing altitude, turns, banks and staying on a straight course (easier said than done!). You can stay in control of the aircraft for the whole time if you wish or, of course, have the instructor take over for a few minutes while you take some photos to remind you of your flying lesson.
Once your time in the air is over, the instructor will once again take over for landing, and once safely back on the ground, you'll have the opportunity to learn how to taxi as you steer the aircraft back to its berth.
As a final bonus, should you get the flying bug and decide to go on and take your license, this flying lesson actually counts towards your flying time so you'll already be on your way!
