Pilots seeking new experiences will soon be able to find them via a 'travel agent' offering exotic courses
A 36-year-old professional helicopter pilot has set up a new company, Adventure Flight Limited as a sort of ‘travel agent’ for pilots seeking new experiences. To date it has flying courses in Scotland and South Africa on its books, encompassing the Pitts Special, Extra, Chipmunk and Tiger Moth, with plans to include an SU29 and Super Decathlon ‘in the near future’. Adventure Flight Ltd is also talking to two companies in mainland Europe about adding a seaplane course.
