Flying Visit

Discover how light aviation has affected the daily lives of diverse people in all parts of the world.

In the many nations (for example North America and Europe as well as Australia and New Zealand) light aviation is an accepted part of life. In these countries, there are very few restrictions on private flying. Landing an aeroplane is relatively cheap, parking overnight or for longer is expected, fuel is available and there are very few difficulties in flying between these countries. As a consequence light aviation is not only a source of pleasure but also a means of bringing people together and an enabler for trading and travel.

However, in most of the world non-commercial (private) flying is seen as the privilege of the rich. Small aeroplanes are used only by commercial organisations for training and to reach truly isolated places. In such cases, they are flown by professional pilots. The idea that a light aeroplane can be used by an individual as a means of transport, such as a car, is not widely accepted. Flying privately between countries is complicated by red tape and is often very expensive.

The objective of the Flying Visit adventure is to find out how the access to light aviation has influenced the lives of people around the world and how private flying can benefit individuals, organisations and local economies.
