Introductory Flight - Pilot for a day

If you have always dreamed of flying, with our school, you can finally make it come true!

Flying a plane, apart from being an exciting sensation, is much easier and safer than you think.

With our introductory flight course you will be able to take the controls of the plane and fly it yourself, accompanied by an expert instructor who will teach you all the secrets of flight.

No previous knowledge is required. There are no age limits.

The top experience of our school

Experience the sensation of flying over one of the most beautiful environments in the world: the Canary Islands. You will be able to fly over the paradisiacal beaches of the archipelago, the Maspalomas Dunes, fly over the majestic natural monument of Roque Nublo, and get to know from the clouds an endless number of beautiful natural landscapes of our islands*.

*The flight and the area to be flown are subject to weather conditions as well as the contracted flight time.

It is the ideal gift for any season: at CANAVIA we operate 365 days a year, you can fly whenever you want. We offer you the option of obtaining a personalised gift voucher, valid for up to 6 months.

Reviews are important, that's why we invite you to take a look at the feedback from our customers:

What does the "Pilot for a day" experience consist of?

  • Reconnaissance of the aircraft and the aerodrome
