  • Description
    Ever fancied yourself as a pilot? This 60 minute Trial Introductory Flight is your first step to becoming a real pilot flying a real plane.

    In this 60 Minute flight you will not only learn the basics of the aircraft and get a real, hands-on experience with an experienced flight instructor sitting beside you, but it will also count towards your flying time if you wish to continue on and get your pilots licence.

    Your experience will begin with a pre-flight briefing (approx 45 minutes) by your flight instructor, where you will learn about what to expect during your flight and how the Cessna 172's controls operate. You will spend 60 minutes in the air, flying about the Greater Metropolitan area of Melbourne before returning via the City CBD and touching back down. Afterwards, you and your Instructor will have an after flight debrief where you can discuss your flight and options should you wish to continue further training.

    The Adrenalin will be pumping as you take the controls and fly the aircraft, all by yourself.

    This is not a flight simulator. this is a real aircraft flying experience. - What are you waiting for?

    My friends gave me a voucher to do hot air ballooning but it didn't appeal. I was so glad that I chose to have the flying lesson and would in fact consider taking up lessons! Spyro was relaxed and made it easy to get over the initial jitters, great flight thanks Spyro!

    Had a great time. The pilot/instructor was excellent, knowledgable and patient (I knew nothing about flying). they were generous with their time. I had maybe 20 minutes more than I had booked for. Would recommend it to anybody - and have already told a couple of people.
