Full description

Have you ever seen this film? An exclusive plane, landing on a private run way just a few steps from the sea.

No, and in fact this is not a film but our scenic flight to Caronia: not only will you fly over the main attractions of the Tyrrhenian coast but you will land on a private runway with access to a secret beach. And if the temperatures allow, you can even go for a swim!

The flight will last about one and a half hours, just like your next favourite film.

What we will do

I will be waiting for you at the selected time at the meeting point in Calatabiano (CT). To welcome you there will be me, your pilot!

Upon your arrival, I will show you my general aviation aircraft, reserved for you for the occasion. It is a comfortable aircraft, with three passenger seats, equipped with heating. You will be able to tell that you have flown in a'Mercedes with wings'! During a briefing I will explain to you how to behave in the air, e.g. what you should do in case we make radio contact with aeronautical stations.

And here we are ready for take-off: we will fly in the vicinity of Mount Etna and then descend towards the Bove Valley and the Tyrrhenian coast. We will also fly over the Tindari Sanctuary, Porto Milazzo and Portorosa; the Aeolian Islands will greet us on the horizon. Halfway through the experience, we will land in Caronia, along a private runway that is only 30 metres from the sea. We will disembark and walk to the characteristic pebble beach, to enjoy a break of about 30 minutes in this secret natural setting. When temperatures allow, it will even be possible to swim!

We will return on board to return to the meeting point, where I will give a debriefing on the activity. The flight will last about 1.5 hours; the experience will last about 2.5 hours in total.

Who it is aimed at

The experience is suitable for everyone with no age limit; children aged between 0 and 2 years participate free of charge in the arms of an adult but must report their presence on board by contacting the pilot at the contact details given in the booking confirmation e-mail.

The aircraft is accessible to people with motor disabilities: contact the pilot at the references indicated in the booking confirmation e-mail to report their presence and request boarding support.
