FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When should I arrive for my flight?
We recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled flight time. We make every attempt to keep on schedule, but there will be times when we get behind schedule. Please be patient, we will get you up and flying as soon as possible.
What should I wear?
Comfortable casual clothes. Please wear sturdy soled, closed toe shoes. No sandals or flip flops as they might fall off your feet during aerobatic maneuvers. Tennis shoes would be fine. A shirt with a collar will be more comfortable so the harness straps do not rub on your neck. Make sure you have a pair of sunglasses with you also. Hats may be worn, if you so desire, under your headset.
Do I actually get to fly?
Absolutely! Regardless of your experience, you will be doing the flying, even the aerobatics if that option has been chosen. An experienced flight instructor will be in the back seat with a full set of controls, he will help you handle the taxiing, take-off and landing, you get to do it all, depending on your experience, with coaching from your instructor.
I’m a pilot, can I log this time?
By all means! Bring your log-book, your flight instructor will be more than happy to sign off your flight as dual given. If you forget your log book, we do have log book stickers.
Do I tip my pilot or other crew?
Tipping is a personal preference. Our pilots and ground crew do accept and appreciate tips. If you enjoyed your flight show your appreciation. We have found that most people who tip generally tip 5-10% of the cost of the flight. There is no standard, whatever you feel is appropriate will be greatly appreciated by the crew.
Can I upgrade my certificate?
Definitely! You may add more time, or options to your flight certificate. If you are going to add flight time, please let us know when you schedule your flight so we allow for the extra time. The options, video, still pictures or aerobatics, can be added the day of your flight.
