General

Have family and friends or our assistant’s video or photograph you from outside the aircraft with your camera whilst we record you on 4K 360º video from inside, so you don’t have to worry about recording the experience. Just sit back and enjoy. This video can be viewed on any platform and even with VR Goggles. This is optional and comes at an additional cost, please discuss this with you pilot on the day. 

Contact us to discuss how this all works.

Further to the other items mentioned you need to be at least early Teens in age (this has more to do with size to fit in the harness and be able to see out the canopy) with no upper age limit. Please discuss any medical issues as this may determine the type of flying that occurs.

Due to cockpit size and plane requirements a Maximum height of 6’ 4” and weight of 120 kg.

Preparation

The aircraft is fully enclosed. For winter flights dress as you would for the conditions and in summer ensure you are lightly dressed. Please no skirts if you wish to wear the flight suit as it can be a little difficult to put on over the top, and footwear should be soft flat soled and secure. We also ask that you empty your pockets or have zipped pockets done up so nothing goes flying past our faces whilst we are upside down. This could present a safety issue.  

Glasses for sight or the sun can be worn with the headset. And if you wish a cap and even sunscreen for comfort and protection.  

Yes you should have something in your belly, just make it a light meal and certainly no alcohol or hangovers because that could get messy. We want you to have a great time and that will occur if you are in a state to best enjoy the experience.

Also ensure you are hydrated before the flight.

Reservation

Please advise outside of 7 days or up to 3 days in advance if possible, however, if circumstances necessitate call us to discuss options. Bookings made through Visit Benalla will incur rescheduling fees in accordance with their policies.    

If leading up to the flight you are not feeling well/sick call to discuss the situation and we can advise a course of action.

If during the flight you start to feel unwell, remember you are in constant communication with the pilot. Don’t toughen it out and not enjoy the flight. Let the pilot know and the maneuvers can be tempered till you improve. As a backup we do have sick bags that are easy to access if required.
