“Vol a Vela” – initiation flight at Igualada, was a real flight experience. It is an aerial walk with an instructor. You sit in the first row, the instructor is right behind. Another plane, tug the glider, and release it at 500m, then you fly free. All depends on the wind and other weather particularities.
It was our first experience on the initiation flight, and as far as you know it was a birthday present, for my hubby, and hubby did it for myself. This was our first time, when we gave as a gift an experience, usually it was a thing. And what to say, really great gift. Both of us, enjoyed the experience.
As you can see on the pictures below, we have really happy faces. But, below this happiness, there were a lot of scarring moments before the initiation flight.
We went high up into the sky. Sitting in the first row, made the experience a priceless one. Breathtaking views over Igualada and the airdrome, was something. Daddy, as well, have lead the glider, I was afraid of doing it. He was so amazed of driving it, so the experience was a great one.
One thing that we didn’t like, was that once done the reservation, the time for the experience is between 20-30 minutes, depending on the weather conditions. Even though, we have had our experiences from 15 to 20 minutes each. The price for the experience is 80EUR per person, per flight.
