Learn To Fly - Barrie to Niagara Falls Route

Where: Barrie, Ontario
Price for: 1 Participant
Take the controls and learn to fly an advance ultra-light aircraft with your instructor by your side during your flight from Barrie to Niagara Falls and back.

See Niagara Falls from a whole new perspective!

During this fantastic flying experience, you'll take to the skies in a Light Sport Aircraft (Advanced Ultralight Aircraft), a robust and simple two-seater aircraft that is perfect for first-time flyers.

Upon arrival at Edanvale Aerodrome, just outside of Barrie, you'll be greeted by your friendly instructor. You will receive a briefing on the safety aspects and techniques of light aircraft flying.

After your ground instruction is complete, you will hop into the co-pilot's seat with the instructor beside you. Your instructor will taxi the aircraft into position, and once they have the all-clear from the tower, you’ll head down the runway and up, up you go!

Once you get up to 2500 to 3500 feet, the fun begins as you really learn to fly!

Throughout your lesson, your instructor will guide you all the way. You will be told how to perform each maneuver as required, however it will be your hands on the controls! You’ll practice, turns, banks, gaining and losing altitude, and staying on a straight course.

You can have control of the aircraft for the whole time if you’d like or the instructor can take over for a bit while you sit back and enjoy the spectacular views.

Once your time at the controls is over the instructor will take over for landing. When you are back on the ground, you'll go through post flight checks and have the opportunity to learn how to taxi as you guide the plane back to its berth.

As a final bonus, should you get the flying bug and decide to continue on with lessons and get your license, this flying lesson will counts towards your flying time.
