- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
Few sensations can compare to the freedom of flight. High among the clouds, and far from all earthly worries, the possibilities seem endless – the radiant sweep of the horizon an ever-retreating boundary.
If you long for this airborne perspective, a twenty-minute flying experience is the perfect introduction. This experience allows you to join a highly qualified instructor for a breath-taking ride in a genuine 1942 Piper L4 Grasshopper. Together, you’ll take off and soar high over the scenic Kliprivier Valley and Suikerbosrand Reserve, before coming back in to land. The L4 Grasshopper is an original, used as an observation aircraft during the Second World War. Today, the Cub is still highly prized for its simplicity and performance, and it's the ideal machine in which to begin your aerial adventure!
