If this sounds tempting, but you’re not sure if it’s for you .. then, can we suggest you take a nice scenic country drive out through the Noosa Hinterland to Kybong, and jump on one of our 30-minute scenic flights out over the Mary Valley or a 60-minute flight over the Cooloola Lakes to Rainbow Beach, to experience first-hand the exhilaration of small plane flying with one of our pilot trainers!



So .. is “learning to fly” on your bucket list?
