For a unique view of the Maltese Islands, hop on a plane and take a tour from above! This is a truly unforgettable experience and also makes a great gift for family or friends!

A common thing which people say after they land in Malta is how beautiful it looks from the sky. Now you have the chance to experience those views once again, but this time as a pilot flying your very own plane!

Take control of an aircraft with this unforgettable experience and soar through the skies in your own plane! With hands on instruction from fully qualified JAA flight instructors, you will receive all the information you need to handle a two-seater plane with your instructor by your side.

You will meet your instructor at Malta International Airport, but this time you will be there as a pilot not as a passenger! Before climbing aboard the plane, your instructor will explain the aircraft and its systems, the effects of the controls and the basics of flight. You will then take the captain’s seat for the duration of the flight and once the plane is cruising safely over the beautiful Maltese Islands, your instructor will pass over the controls to you. From then onwards you will be assisted with making some basic flying manoeuvres while you get to grips with this amazing new experience. Photography is allowed!

Weather, time and airspace permitting, you might even be able to fly over Alpha School of English or your hotel in Malta during your flight!
