INITIATION & DISCOVERY

Initiation flight. Fill up on thrills!


Cannes Aviation, pilote and couple, initiation flight departure

Get on board for a genuine flight training, just like one of our student pilots... You will fly a single engine Diamond Star DA40 (or Diamond Twinstar DA42)

One of our professional instructions will outline the basics of piloting and you will prepare your flight of the day together.
After the pre-flight safety inspection that you will perform together, you will get on board, take the left seat—the pilot’s—turn on the engine and taxi out to the threshold of the runway under control from the tower.
Lérins Islands, Bay of Cannes, FranceYour instructor will manage the take-off but you will go right along with him, hands on the controls! Once in the air, after a few additional explanations, the plane controls will be turned over entirely to you for your first manoeuvers: turns, climbs, levelling off, descents. Excitement guaranteed!
You will fly over the Lérins Islands, Saint Tropez Bay or the snow-capped Southern Alps. If you have a camcorder, bring it along and set it up in the cockpit, you can publish the results in your Facebook or Twitter account!
When your session is over, you will again be right with your instructor in the final approach and landing.

If this first experience calls for more, the flight time will be recorded as part of your training to obtain your private pilot license – PPL, or by perhaps starting with a piloting discovery programme.

Give an initiation flight to a significant person in your life.

You can also give an initiation flight to a significant person in your life to mark an important event: anniversary, birthday, passing an exam... or just to allow him or her to enjoy the pleasure of taking the controls of an airplane for the first time! We will issue a “voucher” for an initiation flight that you can hand to the future pilot.
