Taste the sky, feel the wind rush through your hair with a trial flight. Enjoy either a 30 minute or 60minute flight of absolute bliss.
A Trial Introductory Flight (TIF) is if you are uncertain about learning to fly, or if you just want to get airborne to “feel what it is like” before you commence training, it is an air experience flight; a way of sampling flight training without making any commitment to joining the school.
The objective of the TIF is to give you a good and fair sampling of what flying feels like, plus an insight into the flight training process. It is a once off experience; all subsequent flights are on an Approved Syllabus with training toward achieving objectives.
