Full description

Spend a day as a Protagonist of Flight at the controls of a state-of-the-art recreational aircraft! The"Pilot for a day" formula includes 2 missions of 30 minutes of flight time each carried out in a row to experience the thrill of piloting a real aeroplane and learn the basics of piloting in the company of an Aeroclub D'Italia certified instructor.

Sport flying is a theoretical and practical recreational activity that offers the opportunity to test your mental and cognitive skills in acquiring the techniques of piloting a light aircraft . You will learn how to follow procedures, pre-flight checks, the use of CHECKLISTS, and finally fly the aircraft, of course always with the support of a certified instructor.

The flight over the beautiful valleys starting from Monviso, Val Chisone, Val Pellice, Val di Susa with its Sagra di San Michele, and finally the lakes of Avigliana, will leave the protagonist with an indelible and unique memory.

A special occasion to offer an original and unforgettable gift to those who love strong emotions.

What we will do

The 2 flight missions of 30' each, are in all respects initial basic training missions. Therefore, they are NOT simple sightseeing flights, but tests where the participant will be able to test their skills and aptitude for flying a Tecnam P92-J ultralight aircraft.

Each mission will be preceded by a "BRIEFING" (a pre-flight discussion where the instructor gives preliminary instructions on what you will be doing in the air, paying attention to safety aspects and basic knowledge of the aircraft used).

At the end of each flight mission, there will be a "DE-BRIEFING" (post-flight discussion focusing on the feelings experienced based on the exercises carried out at the controls of the aircraft in the various flight situations).

The programme over the course of the day will be distributed as follows:

  • Meeting at the airfield
  • Welcome and tour of the facility
