If you've ever dreamt of being a pilot, then this experience is for you - a three-day introductory aviation course at Requena Aerodrome, just 60km from the city of Valencia.

The aerodrome at Requena enjoys an idyllic climate and a delightful secluded location, surrounded by natural parks, mountains and vineyards. When you first arrive you'll be struck by the tranquility of the setting, where virtually the only sound is the purring of the small planes as they take off and land. The perfect place for your first flying lesson!

What do you get?

Our 'Red Baron' experience is divided into three parts which take place over three days:

  • Day 1: Introduction to the plane's controls and instrument panel.
  • Day 2: Introduction to the local air space and basic flying manoeuvres.
  • Day 3: Circling of the aerodrome, take offs and landings.

Each of the daily sessions consists of the following:

  • Pre-flight briefing with the pilot.
  • A theoretical lesson of 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  • A hands on flying lesson of 45 minutes.
  • Flight de-briefing.

You'll also be treated to some glorious views of the local landscape during your flights, including the picturesque towns of Requena and Utiel, the canyons of the rivers Jucar and Cabriel, and the glittering blue reservoirs of Buseo and Contreras (famed for its spectacular bridges and viaduct).

Meanwhile, your friends and family can watch your adventure from the aerodrome's cafe/restaurant, and enjoy refreshments in comfort until you finish. You can also pick up a memento or two from the on-site shop.

Upon completion of the three day course, you'll receive a diploma accrediting your achievement. And if you really get bitten by the flying bug and decide to continue with more lessons, this course can count towards your private pilot's license (please check the conditions of this offer with us before making your booking).
