  • Description

    Upon your arrival, you will climb into a flight-suit and prepare to board. Your pilot will strap you securely into the open-air cockpit of the Pitts Special S2A aerobatic bi-plane and fasten your headphones and flight helmet. There will be plenty of time for your family and friends to take photographs of you as you prepare for your flight. Once you are secure, your pilot will prepare the plane for take off. You will be able to hear all the calls to air traffic control and speak to your pilot through the intercom.

    You will take off from Bankstown Airport and climb over the outer suburbs of Sydney to reach a cruising altitude of 1500ft. You’ll soar over the sprawling Olympic site at Homebush Bay then circle north over Hornsby and St Ives. Once granted clearance to Sydney Harbour you’ll get a bird’s eye view of iconic landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. You can wave at the Prime Minister at Kirribilli, fly higher than the eagles at Taronga Park Zoo and salute the sailors on Garden Island. It’s the best seat in the house for the best view in the world!

    You might also get a chance to check out Rose Bay and the world famous Bondi Beach, before heading north over Middle Harbour, the Spit Bridge, and Manly as you follow the coastline to Long Reef.

    At Long Reef you’ll drop to 500ft and skirt the peninsula up to Palm Beach and Broken Bay, then climb back to 2500ft for an extended session of extreme induced aerobatics. Try a loop and a roll to give you a view of the world from a completely different perspective. This is what the Pitts is made for and your pilot will give you a taste of the G-Forces Baron Manfred Von Richthofen himself may have experienced during air combat.

    If you’d prefer something more leisurely, The Red Baron will continue your scenic tour up to the NSW Central Coast over the beautiful waterways of Brisbane Waters and The Entrance before heading back to Sydney over the Hawkesbury River.

    Landing back at Bankstown, you’ll be hard-pressed to stop smiling for the rest of the day and we hope it is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
