Piloting This Plane Is The Ultimate Gift For Adventurous Dads

Finding an exciting, mind-blowing gift for adventurous, outdoorsy friends and family can be hard. But if you like to be the best gift-buyer at the party, the Introduction to Flight Experience is for you; and here’s 5 reasons it’s the ultimate gift for adventurous Dads.

1. Adventurous dads value gift experiences not things

It has been suggested that “we are the sum total of our experiences” and adventurous people know this all too well. They know that it only takes one experience to change the way you see the world, and charting your own course through the towering coast mountains at 3500ft is something that is likely to change your perspective forever. New research also shows that experience gifts can foster stronger relationships than material items because experiential gifts are more socially connecting, and who doesn’t need that right now?!


2. Adventurous dads have a strong desire to explore

Adventurous personalities get a kick out of learning new skills that can take them higher, further, and deeper into the wilderness. Pilots on the Introduction to Flight Experience will be taught the basics of flight, the know-how for flying in the coast mountains, and learn the essential techniques for banking and turning from the exhilarating position of the pilot’s seat.

3. Adventurers actively seek to test themselves 

For this special breed, Sea to Sky Air’s Introduction To Flight Experience is the perfect experience. Whether it be the challenge of learning a new skill,  or simply exploring the mountains in a unique and memorable way  – piloting their own plane in the mountains will be a rush that’s hard to beat.

4. Adventurers see it as their responsibility to take control of the experiences they have

Being handed the controls to a Cessna aircraft while flying 3500 feet above the Howe Sound is the very definition of “taking control”. True adventurers seize the day, and know that every great thing in life sits right at the edge of their comfort zone.

5. Adventurers are gifted in the art of persuading others to join them

The road less travelled is best travelled with friends, and adventurous people understand that experiences connect us more than things. On the Introduction to Flight Experience the recipient can can bring along two other adventurous passengers (for just $75 each) to share the cockpit with them and the pilot.
