We’ll spend about one hour with you, 30 minutes or more will be actual flight time. Once in the plane, you will see how we taxi the aircraft to the end of the runway (you steer with your feet!). The instructor will go through the various pre-flight checks, talk to ATC
, and then you’re off on a flight around some of the most spectacular scenery in Alberta. Once we have left the Springbank Airport control area, your instructor will introduce you to basic flying maneuvers – Straight and Level Flight, Turning, Climbing and Descending. For the remainder of the flight you will take the controls and fly the airplane, earning your first minutes of flight time towards your PPL
As we said, your introductory flight counts as time toward your Private Pilot License, so after the flight we’ll provide you with all the information you need to log the flight if you decide to pursue training. But it’s not all work – remember to bring your camera to capture the scenery and yourself at the controls!
