The Family Affair is the same format as the Introductory Flying Lesson but in a four seat light aircraft where up to two family members or friends may occupy the two rear passenger seats.
The flying lesson includes a flight briefing followed by a 20 minute flight in a four seat light aircraft, where the student handles the controls under the supervision of a qualified flying instructor. A certificate of flight will be awarded on completion of the lesson and the flight time will count towards the hour requirement to obtain a Private Pilot’s Licence.
Allow 40-60 minutes for this experience. Friends and family may take photos at the aircraft and then watch from the club cafe or balcony which have excellent views over the runways.
