Since its initial conception in 2003, the air race is definitely an event not to be missed for all aviation enthusiast. Held in putrajaya this year amidst its breath-taking scenery, this year’s show is bound to be a thrilling one. Which is why we are especially pleased to present to you our ‘fly like a Air Race Pilot-30 minute flying experience’ where you not only get a feel of being a pilot, but also get to invite two of your closest friends or loved ones to join in as passengers! This experience package is perfect for those who've always wanted to learn how to fly a plane. A great experience to get a glimpse of how to fly and who knows, maybe after the session, you may want to sign up for a pilot license?
On the day, you will be greeted by your pilot who will bring you to the hangar area where the plane is parked. If you're lucky, you will also get to see up close other private planes, jets and even helicopters.
Before you begin your flight, the pilot will take you through a pre-flight briefing session for you to learn some basic pre-flight inspection of your aircraft. This on-site briefing includes checking the condition of the plane such as oil and safety checking. This will take about 10-15 minutes.
After your briefing and inspection, you are now ready to take-off and experience how it feels like to be a pilot! This part of the experience will take about 30 minutes, including taxing and landing the
plane on the runway. You will personally see how a pilot controls a plane to take-off and land. The best part is you may get a chance to help manoeuvre the plane in the 'safe zone' - an aviation term for when the plane has stabilised and is up in the air. Depending on how confident you are, the pilot will allow participants to take over the controls 80% of the time as he will only be in charge of take-off and landing. Depending on sky traffic, total time in the air usually lasts for a minimum of 15-20 minutes.
Once you land, there will be a short de-brief and Q&A session between you and your pilot. What’s more is, we here at RedRibbon Days are taking this opportunity to give out complimentary weekend tickets to the Red Bull air show worth RM379 at Putrajaya- thus completing this experience.
