DRONE DEMONSTRATION AND FPV FLIGHT EXPERIENCE
DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THIS SERVICE IS TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of flight. If experiencing flight is your dream, Great Lakes Air Operations will help you enjoy the thrill of flying without physically leaving the ground. Using our First Person View (FPV) goggles while we fly our DJI Inspire 2 aircraft, our Flight Experience will show you what's it's like to climb to nearly 400 feet above ground level and travel throughout the sky. This experience is great for birthdays, holidays, gatherings of family and friends, community and school events, and numerous other events in Michigan. The Flight Experience also provides those who aren't wearing the FPV goggles an opportunity to see a small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS), which is commonly referred to as a drone, inflight.
The FPV goggles are comfortable and designed for seamless FPV flying. They combine a pair of large 1920x1080 screens, which provide more than twice the amount of pixels of a typical 2K single screen. A solid headband balances and spreads the weight of the goggles around the head evenly, minimizing pressure on the face and keeping them comfortable to wear.
The Flight Experience includes 90 minutes of actual flight time.
Operating in compliance with Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) regulations, Great Lakes Air Operations is committed to providing a safe and reliable customer experience. All pilots hold an Airman Certificate with a sUAS rating from the FAA, and the company possesses the appropriate aircraft and liability insurance policies.
