First flight experience on the left seat of an airplane

Submissions for this form are closed.

What is it about?

During this fantastic air experience, you will fly for approximately 60 minutes and get a pre-flight briefing by the instructor during 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 duly qualified 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 can be undertaken in a two-seater airplane (Piper Tomahawk PA38), but if one or two of your relatives or friends wishes to accompany you, the flight can be done in a three-seater or even in a four-seater airplane (Piper Warrior PA28 with Glass Cockpit - see pictures here).

Price is 219€ all included for a 1-hour flight on one of our 2-seater airplanes. If you choose the three-seater airplane, price is 255€ all included (two passengers in addition of the instructor). If you choose the four-seater airplane, price is 269€ all included (three passengers in addition of the instructor). Our prices are all VAT included and comprise a 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!
