The Royal Aéro Para Club de Spa asbl invites you to discover the pleasure of aerial sport by flying over our magnificent region

Introductory flight (also called "first flight" or "discovery flight" or air trip): 

We take you on board of one of our planes to discover our beautiful region: the Blue Ardennes. Seen from the sky, Spa and its surroundings offer exceptional and varied landscapes. You will fly over the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, the most beautiful racetrack in the world, the Fenns (Fagnes) or even the many lakes, La Gileppe, Robertville, Bütgenbach. From the airfield, you can also discover the city of Liège, Verviers, Aywaille and, who knows, fly over your house and your neighborhood.

It is also an opportunity to discover the practice of aerial sport.

At any time of the year (weather permitting), our licensed and experimented pilots will take you on a flight through these hilly landscapes, tinged with green or gold, dotted with rivers, lakes and waterfalls. In the distance, perched on a hill or hidden behind a valley, picturesque villages will appear, their old buildings or their castles in ruins. Seen from above, the world brings its part of enchantment. Come and taste it and let yourself be intoxicated by our aerial excursions.

The date of your flight will obviously depend on the weather conditions and the availability of our experienced pilots.

 

Two solutions for the payment :

  • In cash or by bancontact on the day of the flight;
  • Gift Voucher payable in advance by bank transfer: we send it by post either to you or to the person to whom you make the gift. Allow 10 days for the administrative procedure.

 

Remarks:

  • Each aircraft has a maximum limit for the weight of passengers (Weight and Balance). If your weight exceeds 90 kilos, we will have to use a 4-seater plane. So even if you are the unique passenger, we will use a Cessna 172 4-seater plane for safety reasons. The fare will be that of 2-3 passengers.
  • If a passenger is younger than 18 and the parent is not in the plane, we require written authorization from the parent. Attached is the authorization form to be filled and signed. (Autorisation_Parentale_Vol_RAPCS.pdf).
  • After booking, you will be put in contact with an approved pilot for introductory flights or an instructor for an initiation flight. We will try our best to satisfy your desired date, but aviation is highly dependent on weather conditions. If conditions are not optimal, we will agree on a new date. Safety is our first concern.

Cessna 150 : 2 seats

Cessna 172 : 4 seats

Piper Cub PA18 : 2 seats
