the flight

First we'll introduce you to your captain and head out onto the runway for the pre-flight inspection of the plane.

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!

One superb feature of the Tecnam P2002 is its sliding canopy which can be opened mid flight. At some point en route (during flights of 30 minutes or more) the pilot will idle the engine and open up the cabin to the air outside, allowing you to enjoy the serene sensation of the plane as it glides.

the route

During the flight you'll enjoy stunning panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, with its tiny whitewashed Andalusian villages and the city of Seville in the distance.

Flights of 30 minutes or more will pass over the delightful town of Carmona, one of the great jewels of Andalusia, with its medieval quarter, famed Parador and numerous baroque and renaissance era churches. You'll also be able to spy the remains of its Roman amphitheatre. Before heading back to the aerodrome the pilot will also treat you to some exciting low-level flying. Then for the return leg you'll fly via the Vega del Guadaira.

Flights lasting 45 minutes or more will take you all the way to the Guadalquivir River where you'll follow its winding course toward the Atlantic Ocean. At the delta you'll see rice fields, the famous wetlands of Las Marismas, and the beginnings of the spectacular Doñana National Park, with its dramatic shifting sand dunes - one of the richest and most biodiverse ecosystems in Europe.

For flights of 1 hour and 30 minutes, you can choose between a coastal route, flying over the vicinity of Doñana Park with its beautiful wild beaches, sand dunes, marshes and pine forests, or a mountain route, passing over some of the most majestic sierras in the province of Cadiz, as well as several pretty Andalusian towns, such as Grazalema, Ronda and Ubrique.

By the time you land, you should have a camera full of wonderful photographs, so don't forget to bring one along! The captain will also be more than happy to take a few snaps of you at the controls during the flight.

Note: if you'd like to enjoy this experience as a couple or with a friend, you also have the option of flying together in formation - with the two planes travelling in parallel. You'll be able to chat to each other on the radio, and even take photos from one plane to the other!
