If you are undecided whether flying is for you, then the first step is to go on a Trial Introductory Flight, an unforgettable experience that gives you your first taste of flight.
When you first walk in to the North Queensland Aero Club, we will introduce you to one of our highly qualified flight instructors who will sit with you and explain the basic fundamentals of flight. After a discussion about the what makes an aeroplane fly you will have the opportunity to work with the instructor to carry out a pre-flight inspection to ensure the aircraft is safe for flight before climbing aboard the pilots seat and taking to the skies above the Atherton Tablelands.
Your instructor will handle all radio calls and conduct the take off, once safely established in the cruise your instructor will hand over to you and let you fly the aeroplane, talking through what makes the aircraft climb and descend and turn. The instructor will then take over and bring you safely back to earth.
