Once you are secure, your pilot will prepare the plane for departure. You will be able to hear all the calls to air traffic control and speak to your pilot through the intercom.
You will take off from Bankstown Airport and climb over the outer suburbs of Sydney to reach a cruising altitude of 1500ft. See Olympic site at Homebush Bay and the north-western suburbs of Hornsby and St Ives from the air. Then head over to Sydney Harbour, Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. A flyby of Kirribilli, Taronga Park Zoo and Garden Island.
Check out Rose Bay and the world-famous Bondi Beach, before heading north over Middle Harbour, the Spit Bridge and Manly as you follow the coastline to Long Reef.
Now it's time for a bit of adrenaline-inducing aerobatics; try a loop and a roll to give you a view of the world from a completely different perspective. This is what the Pitts is made for and your pilot will give you a taste of the G-Forces you don't get sitting in a car at a red light!
