Always wanted to be a pilot? Or do you just love the idea of flying? You can check that off your bucket list this weekend by being a co-pilot. The best part? No prior experience required! Fly a two-seater plane and get a taste of what it’s like to fly a (non-commercial) aircraft, right here in Bangalore. Head to the Jakkur Aerodrome and this time don’t be a passenger but a co-pilot. Agni Aerosports Adventure Academy brings to you a chance to fly a Microlight flight that can carry up to two people and has a maximum capacity of up to 450 kilograms. You can book the one day package which starts with a brief introduction to the theory of flying, rules, and regulations in the air, flight communication, and a debriefing session after landing. You will be learning from India's first micro-light licensed pilot, Captain Arvind Sharma and his team of experienced pilots. The duration of the flight will be between 10 and 30 minutes (they’re different packages) on a Microlight Aircraft.
One would need to book the experience at least a day in advance and the experience is limited to one person at a time. The flying experience is open to the public on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) from 6:30 AM to 9:30 AM. A 10-minute ride is priced at INR 3,300, a 20-minute ride is priced at INR 6,500 and a 30-minute ride is priced at INR 8,500. All you gotta do is go on to their website, choose your desired package and book it. However, do note that the availability depends on the weather conditions and children below the age of five aren’t allowed.
