What's included?:

  • Participation in pre-flight inspection.
  • Flying lesson.

The perfect introduction to the world of aviation - an unforgettable flight with majestic views and a chance to take the controls yourself.

The flight

We kick things off with a 5-10 minute briefing where we'll touch on the basic principles of flight and introduce you to your captain. There will be a quick inspection of the plane on the tarmac, and then it's time to get airborne!

You'll be flying in a Tecnam P2002 Sierra, an ultra-modern two-seater plane with dual controls which will allow you to assist the pilot in a wide range of manoeuvres, including climbs, descents and banking. (You'll even be able to lend a hand during the approach for landing!).

The route

Throughout the flight you'll be treated to some stunning panoramas of the countryside surrounding the aerodrome, and fantastic views of the towns and villages to the west of Madrid, such as Navalcarnero, Brunete, Sevilla la Nueva and Villanueva de la Cañada.

Flights of 45 minutes or more will reach the impressive San Juan Reservoir whose miles and miles of beach throng with sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts during the summer months.

Flights of 60 minutes will approach the rugged mountain range of the Sierra de Guadarrama. Weather permitting, you'll be able to spot the famous royal summer palace of El Escorial and the Valle de los Caídos in the distance.

To cap things off, on returning to the aerodrome, clients on flights of 60 minutes or more will also get the chance to do a couple of low level flyovers of the runway.

Note: If a couple (or two friends) or even three of you wish to fly at the same time, you can. The two or three planes will fly simultaneously along the same route, and you will be able to communicate with each other by radio.

Season

All year (Mon-Sun).

Simultaneous flights

If a couple (or two friends) or even three of you wish to fly at the same time, you can. The two or three planes will fly simultaneously along the same route, and you will be able to communicate with each other by radio. This option is only available on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year.

Client testimonials

"...It was a totally incredible experience, thanks in large part to the pilot who made everything as easy as possible for me, and who allowed me control of the plane for almost an hour - much more than I expected. It was my 18th birthday present and I'll never forget it. "

Adrián Cuadrado

"...Good afternoon, I'm sending a few photos of my plane flying experience for you to share on your website so that other people will be inspired to give it a go. It was the most amazing experience of my life - taking off and flying by myself, with a few instructions from the pilot was incredible. Thank you to everyone. "
