Full description

Touch the sky with one finger, thanks to an unforgettable flight experience with test piloting, on board an amphibious seaplane with dual controls. Perfect for gifts, birthdays or simply to experience the thrill of flying in the cockpit!!!

With you will be flying champion Riccardo Brigliadori, who will tell you everything you need to know before you step in front of the stick. During the flight you will have the opportunity to take the controls to experience the thrill of flying the aircraft accompanied by a Professional Pilot!

Taking flight is a very strong emotion that is difficult to convey in words. A flight baptism is the key experience to experience a wonderful passion, to discover the world from an unprecedented and privileged position, to explore the land around us with new eyes.

What we will do

The meeting is in Monte Marenzo (Lecco) at the Flight School. We will begin the experience with a nice introductory group briefing around the aircraft, lasting about 30 minutes, where we will illustrate the basic theoretical notions and the manoeuvres that will be performed in flight including turns, speed variations, and setting up the landing.

After the briefing, we will be ready to face the experience accompanied by flying champion Riccardo Brigliadori or an experienced instructor from his team.

We will fly over the skies above Lake Como, the magnificent valley of Manzoni's places, with its mountains and fabulous views. Once in the air we will retract the wheels and try a water landing using the floats of the seaplane and then take off from the water and return to base.

During the 20-minute flight, the participant can try out basic manoeuvres under the supervision of the instructor.

The experience lasts a total of 1 hour.

Who it is aimed at

The experience is open to everyone over the age of 8. Maximum weight limit: 120 kg. Minors must be accompanied to the airfield by their parents.

Other information

The activity is usually carried out in small groups. It is possible to book up to 4 people at a time, in which case the briefing will be shared by all participants while the flight will be carried out one at a time (the seaplane has two seats, one for the passenger and one for the pilot).

Important: it is necessary to arrive at the meeting point 5 minutes before the time chosen for the activity.
