First flight experience on the left seat of an airplane

Submissions for this form are closed.

What is it about?

During approximately 2 hours (1 hour in flight), you will get a pre-flight briefing of 15 minutes, 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), and finally approach and land on the same runway as the one that big airliners use. You do not need to bring anything with you as we provide all necessary equipment for you.

You will take off from Charleroi – Brussels South international airport, where our airplanes are based.

Your flight instructor (who is a commercial pilot) will show you how to manoeuvre the airplane 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 of an aircraft for real!

This discovery flight will be undertaken in a two-seater Piper Tomahawk PA38, but if one or two of your relatives or friends wishes to accompany you, the flight can be done in a four-seater Piper Warrior PA28 with Glass Cockpit (see pictures here).

Price is 210€ all included for a 1-hour flight on our PA38 airplane. If you choose the four-seater airplane, the price is 249€ all included for two passengers (in addition of the instructor) and 265€ all included for three passengers (in addition of the instructor). Our prices are all VAT included and comprise a 15-minute ground briefing given by the flight instructor before departure, which you can all attend, as well as 60 minutes in the airplane. Headsets for everyone are included in the price.

If it is for a birthday or a Christmas gift, we can send you by e-mail a customised gift voucher which will be valid for one year!

Tours around Brussels may be organised from the airport of Charleroi with the four-seater airplanes, depending on the traffic conditions on the day the flight takes place.

Thrills guaranteed!

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!
