This experience option lends itself to individuals who might be interested in further training or enthusiasts who might be looking for something even more special.

This option will act as a guarantee a minimum of 90 MINUTES of airtime but can be extended on the day dependent on your mission objectives.

  • How do I get to Balado Airfield?

    We are based just a couple of miles to the West of Kinross, our access from the A91. There is a big trailer sign and signage at the road entrance. We're easy to find on google or by using What 3 Words - see our 'Contact us' page.

  • What should I bring and wear?

    Bring your sense of adventure, your voucher and a phone or camera for pictures. Wear comfortable clothing for the conditions and sensible footwear, heels will get stuck in the grass and although might look great give very poor rudder control! Bring another layer such as a jacket or fleece and you can decide on the day. Our fixed wing aircraft have heaters but the colder months do test them. Our flex wing aircraft give you the chance to sport a VERY attractive padded all-in-one-suit and helmet!

  • Is there anything else I need to know?

    Family and Friends are more than welcome to watch you set off on your adventure flight. Whilst you're away they can relax in our warm and spacious pilot lounge and get a coffee or snack. We have colouring in for little ones and 50" TV to keep your friends and family occupied. All our flights can be tracked LIVE on the computer in the lounge or on the Flight Radar 24 website. We also have a modern accessible toilet block with baby change facilities.
