Enjoy The Thrill of Flying as Pilot In Command (PIC) assisted by your Flight Instructor

Ready for your very first flight? Our introductory flight is an ideal way to discover the joy of flight, learn more about aviation, and what it will take to become a pilot.
With this offer, you'll receive expert flight instruction -- as well as practice on a simulator, which boasts state-of-the-art avionics systems and the latest training technology. Even better, your time at the controls counts as flying time toward your private pilot's license


Cruise Through the Air
You’ll begin your lesson by meeting with an CASA certified flight instructor. Next, you'll head to the Redbird FMX flight simulator for a thrilling session designed to familiarize you with the plane's controls, take-off, and landing. After that, you'll inspect the surfaces, controls, and instruments of your plane before heading for the skies -- where panoramic views await. You'll be in control of the plane for the entirety of this 60-minute flight (with the help of your instructor, of course), and it's a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the world of aviation.
