My two coastal flights south of Caloundra were breathtakingly beautiful. My instructor, Brendan, a holder of a CPL, allowed me as much or as little control as was safe. The video footage I received post-flight was of high quality and looked extremely impressive. I booked two flights with the flying school and the entire team was proficient, expert and friendly. The Sling aircraft the flying school use is ‘aviation eye candy’: just stunning! I couldn’t recommend the experience more highly. Andrew
Had an awesome time. Chris the instructor made me feel at ease from the start. Absolutely loved the experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Kev
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Would do it again, and Sean, the instructor, was great. A++. Mal
What an absolutely incredible experience! Really friendly team, very simple process. After a little briefing we took to the sky and it was awesome! Brendan was a great instructor, and a lot of fun! The views were incredible and an experience I’d love to do again! Dan
Such a great experience! Instructor was very knowledgeable and explained things clearly. Had a lot more control of the aircraft than expected and didn’t feel rushed at all. Erryn
My pilot was excellent from the briefing to the landing. We flew over Caloundra to Moreton Island and he gave me control for majority of the flight. The view over the island and the experience of flying a small aircraft was amazing. Would recommend this experience to everyone. Joey
The pilot was fantastic and provided information and guidance on flying a plane. Being able to control the plane for a substantial amount of the flight and taking in the amazing views was an absolute highlight! Thoroughly recommend! Steve
