Is there an age limit?
There is no age limit, however, any participant under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult and/or have a parent or guardian sign a waiver on their behalf.
Which aircraft will you be using for the Pilot of a Day flight?
You will be at the controls of one of our Cessna 172s, a four-seater single piston engine aircraft.
Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, prior to the flight, everybody will be required to sign a liability waiver. For participants under the age of 18, a parent or guardian is required to sign on their behalf. If you do not wish to sign the waiver, your flight will be cancelled (see cancellation policy).
Why do you occasionally ask for my body weight?
We will sometimes request your body weight to most accurately fulfill Transport Canada Safety Regulations and to reduce the chance that a flight is overbooked due to the aircraft being loaded above safe parameters.
What happens during the Pilot of the Day flight?
The Flight Instructor will guide you through the operations of the aircraft, including the taxi and take-off. You can choose different destinations to fly to before hand, such us the Sumas Valley or the Vancouver Area. The Flight Instructor will demonstrate some air exercices that pilots in training need to master for the completition of their training. You will assist the Flight Instructor on completing check-lists, and approaching to Abbotsford for landing.
In Flight Recording
How does the in-flight recording recording happen?
Our Marketing Department coordinates with Flight Operations to have one or two action cameras (depending on availability) and an audio recorder to capture your experience.
What happens with the footage?
After the completition of the flight, the footage is reviewed an processed by our Marketing Department. A film montage with highlights is then created.
Would you be sharing the footage to the public?
You will have to authorize release by signing a Media Release Form before take-off. The footage will be shared for marketing purposes only.
Why is the audio hard to hear?
Due to the nature of the aircraft's intercom system and radio systems, the audio can hold static that is reduced as much as possible by our Marketing crew.
When would we see the footage?
You will receive the footage 24 hours after the completition of your flight
