It was an amazing experience! Our son was 1 hour in the air as a second pilot! He saw Melbourne from the air on the small one-engine plane. They flew from Essendon Fields to Point Cook. It was a great present idea and also as an opportunity to try yourself as pilot and decide if you wish to choose this profession in the future. :)
