The class

The flight departs from the aerodrome of Igualada-Odena, 45 minutes from the city of Barcelona and 1 hour from Tarragona and Lleida. The experience starts with a 45-minute pre-flight lesson. The pilot will introduce you to some of the key principals of aviation and meteorology and allow you to familiarise yourself with the controls of the Cessna plane you'll be flying. Then it's time for take-off!

The flight

Once airborne, incredible views await in every direction. The pilot will be happy to follow your preferred route, as long as the weather conditions allow it. One popular option is to head east towards the mountains of Montserrat, whose jagged peaks make for one of the most iconic landscapes in Cataluña.

You could also fly north to the imposing Castle of Cardona, whose medieval walls were home to Catalan nobility for centuries, and which featured in the Orson Welles film 'Chimes at Midnight'.

The Cessna is equipped with a dual control, so you'll be able to assist the pilot in a range of different manoeuvres, such as ascents, descents, banks, divebombs, tailspins, gigglebugs, and loop the loops. You'll also be able to participate in the landing - perhaps the most exciting moment of the flight!

A truly unforgettable experience and a magical way to enjoy one of the most picturesque parts of Cataluña.
