Our Aviator Programs are available only in the ACT school holidays.

Aviator Programs

Our Aviator Programs teach young boys and girls aged 6-18 to fly our fantastic simulator. Aviators will learn and operate the primary flight controls and develop skills in basic navigation, all under the guidance of an experienced simulator instructor.


We offer the Individual Aviator Program for kids 6-18 for a 30 or 60 minute session, the 2 hour group Junior Aviator Program to kids aged 9-12, and the 4 hour group Young Aviator Program to those aged 12-18.  Group programs are limited to 4 aviators per session, ensuring maximum time in the simulator. Each person in group programs will act as the pilot and as the co-pilot during the session.


All simulator flying is supervised by our experienced instructor, ensuring maximum benefit to participants.



Individual Aviators

We offer an individual aviator program for those aged 6-18. Done individually, your child has the undivided attention of our instructor. You can choose either a 30 minute or 60 minute session. Within your session, you can focus on your choice of scenarios or choose to perform the same pilot tasks as in the group program, in a more compact time.


Junior Aviators

Junior Aviators is a group program for those aged 9-12 which enables participants to focus on basic flight skills such as maintaining level flight and direction, and controlled direction and altitude change, and visual navigation.


Aviators will undertake specially selected simulator exercises, including a take-off and landing flight.


Young Aviators

Young Aviators is a group program for those aged 12-18 designed to teach participants some of the fundamental skills of simulator flying. Aviators will also work through aviation exercises to build their knowledge of flight and navigation before putting their skills into practice in the simulator. Activities are designed to challenge participants without discouraging them, and are flexible to cater for differing levels of expertise.




From the parent of one of our participants:

Just a quick note to let you know how much Will enjoyed the Young Aviator Program. In fact, he wants to spend his own money on doing it again! Will hasn't stopped talking about the experience and I even heard him testing his little sister on what sounded like physics that he'd learnt! I was impressed with the work he'd done in the booklet he brought home.
Thank you so much and well done on the program.

Is there a discount for two children from the same family?

Our prices are already as low as we can make them, so no further discount is available.
