As a lifestyle journalist, I’ve had the privilege of exploring a wide array of adventures that life has to offer. From gourmet cooking classes to thrilling outdoor escapades, I thought I had seen and done it all. But when the invitation arrived for Aeroviation’s Duo Flight Experience, I knew I couldn’t pass up this unique opportunity. After all, how often does one get the chance to take virtual control of the skies and embark on a journey that includes flying over the stunning Changi airport, threading between the iconic Marina Bay Sands towers, circling the Eiffel Tower, and even tracing an “8” around the majestic Pyramids in Egypt?
During my virtual adventure, I also experienced a “Top Gun” moment while flying through the breathtaking Grand Canyon in the United States. It was a breathtaking journey that left me in awe of the wonders of aviation. Now, let me take you on a journey through Aeroviation’s offerings that cater to aviation enthusiasts of all ages and aspirations, from the classroom to the cockpit.
Founded in 2018, Aeroviation is on a mission to elevate aviation education standards in Singapore, and they are doing so in spectacular fashion. Offering a range of programs, from comprehensive aviation education to hands-on flight experiences, Aeroviation is making aviation accessible and captivating for all ages.
The Aviator programme – A journey through aviation
Aeroviation’s Aviator Programme is designed to provide students with a comprehensive educational journey through the aviation industry. It goes beyond textbooks and classrooms, offering hands-on experiences with cutting-edge flight simulators, virtual reality (VR), and Air Traffic Controller simulators. What sets Aeroviation apart is its innovative approach, integrating technology like Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) to bridge theory and practice. This not only enhances students’ understanding of Physics, Mathematics, and Geography but also ignites their passion for aviation.
For young aviation enthusiasts aged 7 to 12, the Junior Aviator Programme offers an unforgettable experience. Divided into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels, these year-long expeditions comprise enlightening sessions that build skills and knowledge. The aim is to equip them for the Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) licensing in the future.
Flight experiences – Take control of the skies
Now, let’s talk about the heart-pounding experiences that Aeroviation offers. The Duo Flight Experience, priced at SGD 158, allows you to share the thrill with a loved one. Imagine sitting in the cockpit with an expert instructor as you learn how to navigate and land an aircraft with confidence. It’s an immersive adventure that lets you take control of the skies, creating lasting memories together.
The VIP Flight Experience (SGD 198) is the way to go for those seeking a touch of elegance. You’ll be treated to delightful drinks and chocolates as you soar among the clouds, providing a romantic and mystical perspective of the world from above.
And if you’re up for a challenge, the Full Experience (SGD 250) is an absolute must-try. Engage in the thrilling act of hopping and soaring within the confines of a genuine jet cockpit. Plus, take on the role of an Air Traffic Controller to enhance your aviation adventure with an added layer of excitement.
Pilot licence – Your path to the skies

The consultation, lasting about 45 minutes to an hour, includes discussions with parents about career paths and early financial planning. It also offers a program tour and a thrilling 10-15 minute simulator trial.
