How to redeem your experience gift:
The adventure of this unique experience gift begins at the Wetaskiwin Regional Airport, just 60 kilometres south of Edmonton. An Introductory Flying Lesson is your opportunity to control a Cessna 172 airplane under the supervision of a certified flight instructor. During your flying lesson, you will have the opportunity to ride in the co-pilot seat, take over the controls, and learn to fly while taking in the Alberta’s dramatic landscape … plus you can bring 2 friends along with you to share the experience.Your flight will include a briefing conducted by your instructor before strapping yourself in to the airplane. Once you are airborne and the instructor gives you a demonstration on how to manoeuvre the aircraft, it's over to you to take the controls. During your flying lesson you can practice 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 most of the flight if you wish, or have the instructor take over for a few minutes while you take some photos to remind you of your flying lesson. Once your time in the air is over the instructor will once again take over for landing.
Each "Pilot" can bring up to 2 additional passengers. Only one "Pilot" per flight.
Whether you are looking to begin a new hobby or simply interested in seeing what it feels like to take over the controls of a plane, this Introductory Flying Lesson will be unforgettable!Your Introductory Flying Lesson takes place at Wetaskiwin Regional Airport, a short drive south of Edmonton.
