Piloting a light aircraft as a stag do activity, flight initiation

Can you imagine experiencing the thrill of taking the controls of a light aircraft? The initiation of flight is one of the latest ideas for stag dos. Join us to take a closer look at this activity, flying a light aircraft, which gives a new twist to the term stag do. If you’re of the opinion that the sky is the limit when it comes to parties, you’re sure to love this idea.

First phase: instruction

Obviously, if you’ve never taken the controls of a light aircraft, you can’t expect to be allowed to fly one. And no, it doesn’t count if you’ve spent many hours playing with the console because it’s not the same, even if you’ve bought a special controller.

For this reason, the first thing done in this activity is a theoretical class, where an instructor will tell you what to do and how to act at all times. Just because it’s theory doesn’t mean it’s not exciting, especially since you have to be very attentive for the next step. The nerves you’ll feel during the process are like those you experience when you sign up for bungee jumping for stag dos and they start putting on the harness. You know you’re going to fly and you’re looking forward to it. This class lasts 20 minutes and is very important if you want to enjoy your stag do activity.

Phase 2: the flight

A professional pilot and instructor will accompany you at all times during your flight. The light aircraft has two compartments to monitor your experience and ensure safety. You’ll have your moment of glory flying for another 20 minutes, so you can feel like a fully-fledged pilot.

You’ll soar through the sky and have an incredible scene at your feet. If you’re a lover of adventure sports and strong emotions, you can’t miss the opportunity to try it. The sensation of flying has always fascinated everyone, except those who are afraid, but that’s another story.

Ideal to gift that friend saying goodbye to his single life

A flight in a light aircraft is a completely new way to celebrate stag dos. You can organise everything to fly one by one if you’re a small group and have enough time. Or surprise the one celebrating his stag do, pooling together to gift him a memorable trip. He’s sure to have never reached such heights!

To top it off, after a few days, the person who flew will receive a commemorative diploma certifying that they have completed their flight initiation. An unforgettable memory of that moment, something to brag about even after many years have passed.

There’s one detail you need to bear in mind if you’re all planning to fly. Those under 16 cannot fly, as the law does not permit it. It’s the minimum age to enjoy a ride at the controls of a light aircraft.

Can you imagine being able to do this activity from Sabadell Airport? It could be the perfect starting point for an absolutely epic stag do party, don’t you think?
