Maybe you thought about flying when you were younger?
Perhaps you’re a fan of Microsoft Flight Simulator?
Or maybe you’re just curious about how aeroplanes work?
Do you want to experience what it’s like in the cockpit?
You might even have dreamt about being a pilot?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, and you are aged 35 or above, then you’re ready to take the RVAC Millennial Falcon Flight Experience and experience what real pilots do on the ground and in the air.
The Millennial Falcons program was established to provide a meaningful flight experience for Victorians over the age of 35 who are interested in aviation.
Our hope is that this Flight Experience will ignite your ambition to continue on and become a pilot.
Prior to your Flight Experience, there will be a short introduction on RVAC Flight Training. Then you’ll learn a little about the physical and written requirements, the training costs and the time it takes for flying lessons. You’ll see how much fun flying can be, and how easy it is to learn. You may be surprised at how simple it really is.
After this you’ll be introduced to your Millennial Falcon Flight Experience Pilot and then the fun really begins!
Your Flight Experience
The Millennial Falcons Flight Experience is a real “in the cockpit flight” and will last approximately 30 minutes. You will see the earth and sky in a new and exciting way and experience the freedom of flight that many people only dream about.
Many people remember this experience for the rest of their lives. You will, too!
- On the ground: Your pilot explains what will happen during the flight. You may talk about the aircraft, review an aeronautical chart (or map), and complete a careful “walk-around” pre-flight inspection of the aircraft.
- Just before takeoff: Your pilot explains the interior of the aircraft, including the operation of the aircraft door, safety belts, and instrument panel.
- In the air: The flight lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. During the flight your pilot will explain and demonstrate the effects of the controls on how the aircraft flies and you get to take in the spectacular view that only flying can offer.
- Back on the ground: There’s more time for you to ask questions about the flight. Your pilot is happy to tell you more about flying and their particular aircraft.
Thanks to the efforts of our volunteer RVAC members The Millennial Falcons Flight Experience is available to those over 35 years of age for the very reasonable cost of only $75.
There is no obligation after your Flight Experience and you will not be asked to buy lessons or sign up for anything.
