Trial Introductory Flight

Have you ever dreamed of taking the controls of an aircraft in flight?

Our Trial Introductory Flight is the perfect opportunity to feel what it's like to be a pilot, whilst flying over stunning views of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay.

The objective of the TIF is to give you a good understanding of what flying a light aircraft feels like, plus an insight into the flight training process. Whilst it can be a wonderful once-off experience, it is conducted based on approved flying syllabus and therefore can be approved as flight training if you decide to continue towards achieving objectives such as a Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) or Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL).

Just like an actual pilot, you will go through a pre-flight briefing and aircraft inspection, before taking to the sky with one of our experienced Flight Instructors. The Instructor will teach you about the aircraft, show you some basic manoeuvres, and then hand the controls over to you under their supervision.

A Trial Introductory Flight is an amazing experience, and who knows, it may even leave you wanting to actually become a pilot!

Gift certificates are available for the Top Gun in your life as well as add-on extras such as a GoPro or 360 degree video, to make the experience even more memorable.
