I've experienced flying around Sydney so many times and I can never get tired of it. Not only do you get the best view of this wonderful city but you get to do it in the comfort of an air-conditioned aircraft that feels like you're in a car rather than an aeroplane. Did I mention that this flight schools does aerobatic flights too. You know you have to experience that. Don't think about it too much, just do it.

Hi VictorMRodrigues, You're right - it truly is the most luxurious way to see the sights of Sydney, and with the speed of the fixed-wing aircraft over helicopters, you get to see more of it!

this has got to be one of the most exilerating experiences as you take control to perform a roll over and a loop, pioleting the aircraft yourself

Been away from flying for a few years. Back at it with AAA and these guys and in training . Pete and Doug are great for super quality flight training. From ab initio through to advance aircraft handling - highly recommended.

Had this on my bucket list for some time and was surprised by my family with a Red Balloon Experience at this place. Friendly and extremely experienced world class pilots on hand to take you to the skies and back. I got the U-Fly Aerobatics experience. About 1 1/2 hours all up and just under an hour in the air. The pilots are very calm and helpful and guide you through the whole process. You actually get to fly the plain, do loops and barrels roles..but if after doing this your stomach feels like it is making its way up to your mouth, they will take over and let you relax with the surrounding scenery. Safety is paramount with these guys and they don't miss a thing. No accidents on record and you can see why - they are just professional. If you or someone you know like a bit of a adrenalin rush, likes the thought of flying yourself and taking on a few moves in the air - this is must. The whole thing is video for you if you wish to purchase afterwards. Weather changes can affect your booking so you may have to reschedule, but this is ok, because you want the best experience possible and one that's going to make you sick.. If you are bucket list person, tick this one off and get there..
