Flying Lesson from Barrie - Lake Simcoe Route

Where: Barrie, Ontario
Price for: 1 Participant
Learn to fly a plane during this hands-on introductory flight lesson over Barrie and Lake Simcoe. Take control of an advanced ultra-light aircraft with your instructor by your side and see how it feels.

Lake Simcoe and Barrie from a whole new perspective!

This introductory flying lesson is the perfect way to experience the wonder of flight as you learn to fly from Barrie across Lake Simcoe, over Lagoon City and back.  This 70 minute flying lesson will give you a whole new perspective on Lake Simcoe.  

Your lesson takes place at 2,500 to 3,500 feet and at speeds averaging 100 miles per hour. Experience the panorama of the countryside from a bird's point of view in this amazing flying experience.

Your flying lessons takes off from the Edenvale Aerodrome.

Soar from Barrie across Lake Simcoe, over Lagoon City and back.

The fun begins with a ground school introduction and briefing where you'll learn about the basics of flying. You'll be flying in an Evektor Sportstar Advanced Ultralight, which is ideally suited for flying lessons ( a two-seater aircraft  -  instructor and participant).

Your instructor will then taxi the aircraft into position. Once you have the all-clear from the tower, they'll will start the run-up and away you go!

Once airborne, the fun part of learning to fly really begins. During the flight you will take the controls and discover what it is like to pilot a small aircraft. 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!). 

Once 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!

PLUS, bring along an SD card and we’ll record the entire flight!
