During the TIF you will learn how the aircraft controls work. Once in the air your instructor will show you some basic flying manoeuvres including straight and level flying, turning, climbing and descending. You will then have the chance to take the controls yourself, and practice what you have learnt under their guidance. That's right - YOU will get to fly the plane!
The objective of the TIF is to give you a good understanding of what flying a light aircraft feels like. It will also give you an insight into the flight training process. While it can be an enjoyable once-off experience, it is conducted based on the approved RaAus & SAFA flying syllabus. It therefore, can be accepted as flight training if you decide to continue towards achieving your Powered Parachute, Paramotor or Paraglider Pilot licence.
What is included
– The TIF experience in an Aerochute or Hummerchute aircraft - approx 30 minutes, which includes;

A GoPro video is a perfect way to remember the thrill of your flight experience with us.
