What You'll Get
Upon arrival at the Bankstown Airport, your instructor takes you to your aircraft and provides a pre-flight briefing on various aspects of your flight, including how to operate the controls and safety harness. After strapping you in, your pilot then starts the engine and taxis for take-off.
Once you're in the air, you'll be shown how to fly level, climb, turn, and descend as you make your way over the western suburbs of Sydney. In the dedicated training area, your instructor teaches you how to perform the aerobatic maneuvers of looping and rolling—like your very own roller-coaster ride controlled by you.
