Classic Introductory Flight
This introductory flight is for those who are thinking about taking flying lessons and obtaining a pilot’s license. Experience flight first-hand and you may even get to fly the airplane yourself! A Transport Canada approved flight instructor will guide you through what is involved in learning to fly, give you a tour of the BFC facilities and share a 20-minute flight in a four seat Cessna 172 with you at the controls. The flight can also be conducted in a smaller two person Cessna 152 for a 30-minute flight. A post flight briefing will follow your flight so that all of your questions can be answered. This flight is only available to one person, as passengers take away from the learning experience. Cost: $100 plus HST.
“Mini” Sightseeing Flight
This short sightseeing flight allows you to experience the thrill and adventure of flight and take up to three passengers along. The flight is approximately thirty (30) minutes and will take you over the beautiful Caledon countryside and hills of the Niagara Escarpment. Cost: $115 plus HST
