Upon arrival at the Bankstown Airport, your instructor takes you to your aircraft and provides a pre-flight briefing on various aspects of your flight, including how to operate the controls and safety harness. After strapping you in, your pilot then starts the engine and taxis for take-off.
Once you're in the air, you'll head north past Sydney Olympic Park, the Parramatta River and over Sydney's leafy northern suburbs. Your instructor will show you how to fly level, climb, turn, and descend as you make your way over the beautiful Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park north of Sydney. With spectacular views of Palm Beach and the Barrenjoey headland, your instructor teaches you how to perform the aerobatic maneuvers of looping and rolling—like your very own roller-coaster ride controlled by you.
On the way back, you have the opportunity to discover what the Robin 2160i aerobatic trainer is really capable of as your instructor demonstrates its range with speeds up to 202 mph (325 kph) and G forces up to +6Gs. If the weather conditions are suitable, you might even have the opportunity to fly the aircraft yourself all the way to the landing
