- a discovery flight phase, to enjoy the beauty of the landscape.
- an aerobatic phase: the pilot will look for an aerobatic axis to perform an acrobatic program with all the possible figures: loops, rolls, cuban eight… Strong sensations guaranteed!
- During the whole flight, the pilot and his passenger are in constant communication so that the passenger can share his flight experience and eventually ask for less or more evolutions, depending on his tolerance to G
