Ever dreamt of flying a plane just for the fun of it? Always wanted to experience what it's like to be a jet fighter pilot?

Camden Airport in Sydney offers a range of flying experiences for novices or experienced pilots alike through flying schools such as Airborne Aviation, Curtis Aviation, Liverpool Flying School and Air Combat Australia.

The full flight experience

Joy flights have become increasingly popular as gift experiences for loved ones or friends. Most of the flying schools offer joy flights such as aerobatic flights (for the adrenalin junkie), tiger moth flights and other hands-on flying lessons in light aircrafts from as low as $149 per half hour (prices vary according to schools and type of plane).

An experienced and licensed pilot will provide pre-flight training and assist you during takeoff and landing. If you feel confident enough, you can pretty much steer the plane in the direction you fancy. The pilot can take over the controls at anytime during the flight so you feel safe to explore and push your limits.

Friends and family are welcomed to wave you off on the airport tarmac and watch you soar into the sky.

The airport hangar itself makes for a very interesting visit with various light aircraft and vintage planes parked up for you to admire.

I can guarantee that the exhilaration from being high up in the air will rank highly in your list of memorable experiences.

You can even take it further and sign up for courses to gain a private pilot license.
