Before taking to the skies the pilot will talk you through the foundations of flight, cover the essential principles of aviation, and explain what it will be like when you take the controls of the plane as the co-pilot.

Once you’re feeling confident you’ll be given a safety briefing by the pilot. Then it’s time to take the bull by the horns and learn some real flying skills in a 30 minute adventure over the Squamish valley.

Flying a plane experience: Guest Reviews


“In spite of my nervousness the pilot coached my through a few climbs, descents and turns and showed me how to trim the tabs to get a feeling for how the plane responded to each. How exhilarating!”Jerryk883
“Our pilot/teacher was great, he made the experience very fun and took the nerves away 100%. This was a surprise gift and the person who was going to do the flying was extremely nervous and unsure, he made the situation light and casual, she ended up loving the experience.”Arielh115
