Can I postpone or cancel the flying lesson?
Yes, free of charge up to 48 hours before the flying lesson. After that, costs may be charged, for example because the flying school can not book another students for that period, or costs have already been made.
Can anyone join the flying lessons?
At the experience of your choice you will find whether there are certain requirements for your physical condition.
We do not recommend participating for people whose condition does not allow flying in a airliner or, for example, driving a car. Depending on the arrangement, pregnant women can participate up to approximately 30 weeks' pregnancy. If you suffer from motion sickness or a weak stomach, please indicate this in advance so that it can be taken into account. When in doubt, always consult beforehand with your doctor.
How far can I fly in 20 minutes, half an hour or an hour?
With every experience you will find a map of the Netherlands. Click on the location to see an indication of how far you can fly. We are not allowed and able to fly everywhere. The actual route is determined in consultation with the instructor.
How does ordering work exactly?
How long is the gift card valid?
If you order a gift card today, it will be valid for 2 years. If you have already ordered a gift card, please check the validity date on the gift card. Older gift cards may be valid for a shorter period.
Can I extend my voucher because of Covid?
Can I change the voucher later?
Yes this is possible! For example, you can extend the flying lesson or even choose something completely different. Ideal if you find another flying lesson more enjoyable. No costs are charged for this, you only have to pay the difference in price. The voucher is not redeemable for money so you will not get a refund when you choose a cheaper product. You can easily arrange it yourself, enter your voucher number at reservation
and choose 'change voucher'.
Can there be passengers alongside the student?
Check the flying lesson of your choice under Specifications. Here you can find how many people the flying lesson is for. For some flying lessons there is a small extra price for this. You never fly with strangers.
How far ahead should I make a reservation?
Usually you can go to your flying lesson within a week. It can take a bit longer for the weekends.
Book at least two days in advance due to the planning of the flying schools.
Some products are seasonal, such as glider flying
. In addition, gliding has limited availability. Book these flights well in advance.
An exception to the above are the Last Minutes
. These can be booked up to 2 hours before the start.
How many lessons do you need for your flying license?
What time is the flying lesson?
When composing your flying lesson you can specify a reservation request for a day and part of a day. You will receive a confirmation by mail with more information and the exact time. When booking a Last Minute
on Texel, Zeeland or Ameland you immediately choose a time.
I want to fly today, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. Is that possible?
The planning is made a few days in advance for most products. You can reserve skydiving
on Texel, Zeeland and Ameland shortly in advance.
Sometimes Last Minutes
are available. You can reserve those up to 2 hours in advance
Can I also pay at the location?
Unfortunately, that is not possible. The flying schools only schedule appointments when prepaid. This is done because of 'no shows'.
I am slightly above the maximum weight or height, is that allowed?
Look at Specifications of the flying lesson of your choice. It states the maximum weight and the maximum length. The maximum length is partly dependent on your physique. Sometimes you can also fly if you are a few centimeters longer, but we cannot estimate this in advance. You then have the risk that the instructor finds it irresponsible, then you cannot fly. The maximum weight includes clothing and shoes, as you go on the plane. This may not be exceeded.
