FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why are we so much more affordable than others?
That's easy, we love our business, so we run it ourselves, this means we save on costs of running our business and can therefore afford to pay only the best pilots in Adelaide. That's right, they're real pilots, and they're amazing! They love what they do and they love sharing their love of avaition with anyone and everyone. Check out our Facebook Reviews and see for yourself how much fun people have when they come in, we've flown over 10,000 customers since we opened our doors.
So what else makes us different?
We have 2 simulators to choose from. When we first opened our doors in April 2012, we had our Commerical Jet Simulator based on the Boeing 737-800NG (this is generally what you would fly on if you were travelling interstate). But we now have Adelaide's ONLY Fighter Jet Simulator based on the F/A-18 Super Hornet! If you're buying this as a gift for someone else, we've made it easy for you, you don't have to decide which one they will fly, their voucher will entitle them to either. So you can give them the voucher as a gift, then they can decide which experience they would like to try when they book in.
