Experience Toronto like never before!
Soar into the air and look down through the tall Skyscrapers at all that Toronto has to offer. Your introductory flight lesson take place at 2,500 to 3,500 feet and at speeds averaging 100 miles per hour. See the panorama of the countryside from a bird's point of view in this amazing flying experience.
This local scenic tour and flying lesson over Toronto's city centre gives you a chance to view Toronto from a whole new perspective as you spend 35 minutes flying from Buttonville Airport, over the city and back. It is amazing what you can see from this height and the distance you can travel without congested streets and traffic lights.
You will soar over breathtaking scenery including Toronto Island, High Park, The Don River, Casa Loma, CN Tower, Sky Dome and the downtown core.
Your flying lesson includes pre-flight briefing where you will be introduced to the aircraft and discuss the lesson flight plan and pre-take-off checks. Your instructor will then taxi the aircraft into position, and once you have the all-clear from the tower, will start the run-up and away you go!
Once airborne, the fun part of learning to fly really begins. After a demonstration of how to manoeuvre the aircraft it's over to you to take control. You'll be in control for most of the flying lesson, practicing gaining and losing altitude, turns, banks and staying on a straight course (easier said than done!). You can stay in control of the aircraft for the whole time if you wish, or of course have the instructor take over for a few minutes while you take some photos to remind you of your flying lesson.
When your time in the air is over the instructor will once again take over for landing, and once safely back on the ground you'll carry out post flight checks and have the opportunity to learn how to taxi as you steer the aircraft back to its' berth.
As a final bonus, should you get the flying bug and decide to go on and take your license, this flying lesson actually counts towards your flying time so you'll already be on your way!
