Learn to Fly - Barrie to Toronto City Centre

Where: Barrie, Ontario
Price for: 1 Participant
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to learn to fly or do you know someone whose dream it is? A flying lesson from Barrie to Toronto's city centre is the perfect gift experience! Take control of an advance ultra-light aircraft with your instructor by your side and see how it feels.

See the CN Tower from a whole new perspective! 

Your introductory flying lesson takes 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 as you learn to fly.

Learn to fly...over Toronto!

This local scenic tour and lesson gives you a chance to view Toronto from a whole new perspective as you spend 1.2 hrs flying from Barrie to Toronto and back. 

Your flight lesson includes pre-flight briefing where you will be introduced to the aircraft and discuss the lesson flight plan and pre-take-off checks. You'll be flying in an Evektor Sportstar Advanced Ultralight. Your instructor will taxi into position, 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.

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!
