Hi everyone ,
I got a question for my canadian fellow.... My father dream about following is pilot license but because of medical problem ( lost 75% of one eye ) is not allowed to follow any course what so ever. I would like to know if any of you guy heard about any company who will bring him, up in the air and give him control of the plane ( understand that the pilot will be with him at all time) My little sister think she as company who will do that in CND but she can not remember the name of the company....

Anyway I would just like to know if you guy know a company who can do than!!!

Thank you

sorry for my Spelling smile

Alex, at least two of our(U.S.)members are pilots. If they or a Canadian member-pilot see this, hopefully they may be able to give you some guidance.

If you have a local airport with a flight school or a freelance instructor stop in and ask them about taking your father for an introductory flight, most all airports will have an instructor or school.

Yep, I expect any flight school would offer introductary flights that would match what you're looking for. Around here (Toronto area) they're usually a really good deal.

I don't think they're allowed to let you take off and land but you can usually take the controls once they're in the air.

I did an intro flight a couple of years back. It was a lot of fun. They did let me takeoff. He said it was a little too windy when it came to the landing though, so he took over.

Hardest part was adjusting that little scroll wheel thing (sorry, forget what it is called) to keep the nose of the plane pointing the proper amount of up vs. down when you are in the air. If I recall, when it is adjusted correctly you can just about let go of the controls and fly straight and level.
