Call 616 647 7171 to schedule your flight and your pilot will prepare
the aircraft for flight and meet you at the airport for memories that will
last a lifetime. Upon your arrival you will receive basic flight instruction
and sign a waiver. Each introductory flight is one hour with the first 15
minutes of instruction, 30 minutes of flight and 15 minutes of post flight
About the Aircraft
This aircraft is one of the safest forms of aviation in the sky by design.
The aircraft is new and regularly inspected by the FAA. This aircraft
conforms to all Special Light Sport Standards.
During the flight
The flight can be between 500 and 10,000 feet but it really depends
on your comfort level and weather conditions. You will wear a headset
so you can talk to the pilot during flight. Due to the fact this is a push
style aircraft we can not allow video equipment, cell phones, or other
recording equipment to fly with us. Anything that gets dropped will
pass through the propeller and cause significant damage. We have
two go pro cameras mounted on the aircraft and are available for a
nominal fee if you would like to record your introductory flight.
Preparation for the flight
Bring warm clothes and be on time! We have the ability to fly up to
10,000 feet and it can get very cold when flying at higher elevations. A
good rule of thumb to follow is 20 Degrees less than what is on the
ground. So if the weather man claims it will be 70 Degrees the day of
the flight dress for 50 Degrees. Also flip flops and phones are not
allowed as they can fall off in flight and pass through the propeller!
