The Air Race-established in 2003 and created as an international series of air races in which competitors have to navigate a challenging obstacle course in the fastest time. Well at least that’s what these skilled individuals do.
However if you are one of the few people who have always harboured secret desires to be in one of these type of aircrafts then, wait no more. There is nothing like the present to cease a dream and fly a Cessna 150 of your very own.
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 20 - 30 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 about 15-20 minutes.
Once you land, there will be a short de-brief and Q&A session between you and your pilot. This may be a beginning of a lifelong passion and the chance to fulfil the dreams of your loved one!
