What You Can Expect
Make your way to the Ghindari airfield (55 km from Sighisoara), where this tour begins, and meet your pilot and board an ultralight fixed-wing plane. Listen to a safety briefing, put on a pair of noise-cancelling headsets so you can communicate with the pilot, then take off into the skies above Transylvania. Enjoy the flexibility of a super small group tour, and the personal experience of a plane that seats just two or four passengers. Throughout the tour, the pilot will point out key landmarks and sights on the ground as you pass overhead. Drink in the aerial panoramas down over small Transylvanian villages nested in the valleys of the Tarnava Mica and the Niraj rivers, make a round flight above Sovata Spa Resort, spot the heliothermal Bear Lake and many other salty lakes hidden in the woods and learn about the salt hills and salt mining in Praid. Gaze down the the tiny villages lurking among lush fields and wooded hills and learn the tragic story of the multicultural village of Bezidu Nou which was sunken by the communist dictator Ceausescu in the 80's. Then, have your camera ready as you approach the citadel of Sighisoara, one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of other European cities for atmospheric magic. Capture photos or videos as you circle over the citadel, the most visited attraction in Transylvania. Admire the fairy tale-like towers, the colourful buildings and dramatic walls that all rise in unison from the wooded hilltop, and take in the bird’s-eye views over the socialist town of Sighisoara spread beneath. Ask questions as much as you like and customize your experience with requests to revisit certain sights or linger a bit longer over your favorite parts of the tour. After your flight time is up, touch back down at Ghindari airfield and say goodbye to your pilot as your scenic experience comes to a close. If you would like to customize your trip even further, simply make a request for a special itinerary after booking.
