Sport & Adventure / Air

A unique experience
  • Take the controls of an airplane and discover the pleasure of flying.
  • Learn to fly in the marvelous setting of Tahiti: what a pleasure!
  • While flying you can admire Tahiti from the sky: breathtaking panoramas!
Have you always dreamed of being a pilot and taking command of an airplane? During your stay in Tahiti, you can finally realize this dream and fly above the turquoise clear lagoon and jade velvet mountains on the largest island in French Polynesia! You can learn to pilot a plane and take the controls of a light aircraft, with a qualified instructor pilot beside you for this first lesson.
During a briefing you will be presented the plane that you will fly and you will be given an explanation on why and how an airplane flies. Then you will climb aboard and the pilot is you! You will take off from the runway of the International Airport of Tahiti-Faa’a. Depending on the duration of the flight you choose, you will pilot the plane all the way to the peninsula of Tahiti Iti and/or you will fly over the bays of Moorea or the atoll of Tetiaroa. It is up to you to define your program with the instructor pilot who accompanies you, while respecting the flight conditions and aviation security. The panoramas of Tahiti, its caldera and mythical peaks and spires are magnificent. And there is no better view than from the sky to admire the islands of Polynesia, their glittering lagoons bordered by the coral reef covered in white foam, and the bright marine blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Our Opinion
This tourist activity allows you to combine the realization of a dream--that of flying--and the panoramic views of the mountains and lagoon of Tahiti. From the sky a big wide view is guaranteed. The introductory flight to piloting is more than a simple flight: you take the command of a light aircraft and you take off from the runway of the International Airport of Tahiti-Faa’a, there where you landed a few days earlier when you arrived in French Polynesia. And this time, you are the pilot! At your side the instructor pilot will guide you and you will have an unforgettable experience in total safety. You leave this adventure with your eyes filled with images and a smile on your lips, because you have finally flown with your own wings!
