CHOOSE YOUR EXPERIENCE
Upon your arrival at Red Baron HQ, Bankstown, you will climb into a flight-suit and prepare to board. Your Pilot will strap you securely into the Robin 2160 aerobatic training aircraft and fasten your headphones. There will be plenty of time for your family and friends to take photographs of you as you prepare for your flight.
Your pilot will proceed to give you a briefing on the aircraft’s controls and operations. When you feel secure, your pilot will climb in beside you and prepare the plane for take off. You will be able to hear all the calls to air traffic control and speak to your pilot through the intercom.
Once airborne you’ll head west towards the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. Over St Mary’s- in the designated training area- you’ll climb to 3500ft-4000ft. You’ll start with some basic manoeuvres- like loops, barrel rolls, wingovers and hammer head turns- to get the feel of things.
After warming you up your pilot will put all these elements together into an adrenaline inducing sequence of the type used in air shows; and while aerobatic manoeuvres are all fun and games today don’t forget they developed out of the serious business of WWI, where fighter pilots like Baron Von Richthofen (the Red Baron) and other flying aces performed these complicated aerial moves to avoid being shot down in deadly dog fights.
Once you’re back at Red Baron HQ you’ll be hard pressed to stop smiling for the rest of the day and we hope it is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
