1) Program of an introductory flight:

Golden Age Aviation offers you to discover the piloting of an airplane or an ultra-light aircraft in the rules of art. Not to be confused with a simple maiden flight, here you will not have time to observe the scenery as you will be too busy to enjoy flying the aircraft...

To do this, you will start with an hour of ground school covering some topics such as:

  • Aerodynamic of flight;
  • Controls surfaces;
  • The piloting.

Next, you will receive a twenty minutes briefing to discover the aircraft (airframe, engine, controls surfaces, etc...), how to taxi the aircraft, how to use the radio, etc...

Then it will be time to fly.  During the flight lasting 50 minutes, you will take control of the aircraft, under the supervision of your flight instructor, and practice what you have been teached during the ground school and the briefing.


After landing you will be entitled to a ten minutes debriefing in order to judge your work during the flight.
Do note that an introductory flight is a real flying lesson, so the ground school and flight will count toward your flight training should you decide to give it a go to become an "aviator".


2) Aircraft used:

You have the choice between the following aircraft to complete your introductory flight:

  • Pioneer 200 : The Pioneer 200 is a low wing, wooden construction, 80hp ultra-light airplane. It is a newly designed aircraft, very comfortable and easy to fly. This ultra-light is well suited for long flight and is a good traveler.


  • Skyranger 912 : The Skyranger 912 is a high wing, aluminium and fabric construction, 80hp ultra-light airplane. It is a classic ultra-light aircraft that can be found almost anywhere in France and Europe. It is ittle bit harder to fly than the Pioneer 200 making it a good instructional aircraft.
