What is it about?
During approximately 2 hours (1 complete hour in flight), you will get a pre-flight briefing, go through all the necessary security checks of the airplane, start the engine, take off, learn the basics on how to fly an airplane (climbs, descends, turns), approach and land, and have a debriefing of the flight afterwards. You do not need to bring anything with you as we provide all necessary equipment for you.
We will take off from Charleroi – Brussels South international airport where our airplanes are based.
Your instructor (who is a professional pilot) will show you how to manoeuvre the airplane on the ground and in the air, how to navigate according to visual flight rules (VFR), as well as basic take-off and landing techniques. You will hold the controls for 1 complete hour!
The flight will be undertaken in a two-seater Piper Tomahawk PA38, but if one of your relatives or friends wishes to accompany you, the flight can be done in a four-seater Piper Warrior Glass Cockpit PA28.
Price is 185,00 Euros all included for a 1h flight on our PA38 (225,00 Euros if you choose the four-seater) and the ground briefing.
VFR flights are subject to specific weather conditions. Cloud base and visibility minima are required. In case of bad weather, your instructor will call you at least 2 hours in advance to cancel the flight and plan it for another day.
Brussels Aviation School looks forward to welcoming you on board of one of its airplanes and wishes you an excellent first flight as a pilot!
