Learn the fundamentals of aviation in a detailed ground briefing
Get in the driver’s seat and take to the skies to practice the basic manoeuvres of flight with guidance from your pilot
Bring extra friends: share the flying experience or extend your flight to go farther and choose a custom route
Before taking to the skies there are a few fundamentals that any want-to-be pilot needs to know including: the theory of lift, visual flight rules, how flaps help generate lift at slower speeds, how to read and understand the cockpit instrumentation, and what on Earth ailerons are! Then under the watchful guide of your pilot put your knowledge to practice in the skies above beautiful Squamish, British Columbia.
Known locally as The Chief, this world famous granite monolith is prized by climbers and hikers alike. Looming over downtown Squamish, it's the second largest granite monolith of its kind in the world. The Stawamus Chief is an outcrop of a much larger geological formation called the Coast Mountains Batholith which rose out of the ground between 170 and 50 million years ago.
Flying in our planes is just like driving in a car, with ventilation and heating controls. Simply dress for the season. Mountain weather is vibrant and constantly changing and dramatic cloudy skIes can open up to a bright blue sky in seconds. Bring a warm layer if you wish to open the windows during flight. We highly recommend it, it’s lots of fun! Sunglasses are always a good idea and don’t forget to pack your camera or smartphone.
