Have you ever thought you could admire the magic of the lake Como and its territories from a completely different perspective?

Then an experience of introductory seaplane flight on Lake Como is what you're looking for!

We have built for you an experience that combines amazement, adrenaline and safety.

This is what the experience involves:

Briefing with the pilot for 20-30 minutes to learn the basics of flying and piloting

45- or 90-minute introductory flight on Lake Como to admire the landscape from unprecedented perspectives

  • 45 minutes: overflying the entire Lecco branch with passages over the Castle of the Unnamed and overlook Lecco, Abbadia, Mandello, Lierna, Varennato arrive at Bellagio and then return;
  • 90 minutes: The 90 minutes allow you to fly over the entire lake up to the northernmost tip and land in front of theAbbey of Piona and going as far as Colico.


2 to 6 landings (depending on the duration of the flight and the weather conditions) in the most beautiful places on the Lario, from Bellagio to the Abbey of Piona

- A real piloting lessonhere it's serious, from the very first moment you will have control of the lever, throttle and pedals under the guidance of Italian champion Riccardo Brigliadori or his trusted instructor

Note: the aircraft is a two-seaterexperience therefore includes a single passenger alongside the driver. You can book flights for 2 people which will be organised consequently. In these cases it is also possible to identify a quay on the lake (near beaches, restaurants, bars, etc.). where to change passengers!
