Experience Hour Building in Greece

Hour building for Europeans usually means just spending time flying out of one’s usual training airport, with same equipment used during training, making holes in the sky, offering nothing but boring, routine, useless and tiring flying hours, usually on the airplane types that were used for one’s training.

Weather conditions restrict available days and hours for flying. High cost of living in Northern Europe, usually translates into  higher per hour cost.

Even the Red Arrows come to Athens for their seasonal preparation flights! They could go anywhere!

We at InterIsland Airways, offer something completely different. We give you the opportunity to combine a unique flying experience with vacation and sightseeing is Greece.  No matter if you are time  building in airplanes or helicopters, we give you the opportunity to fly with a safety pilot or instructor, who will introduce you to flying in demanding weather conditions to many different airports or landing sites, at some of the most spectacular and popular areas of Greece.

Taking advantage of the credit allowed in classes of aircraft other than the one of the certificate sought, we also give you the opportunity to experience helicopter flying, gliding in a touring motor glider or even to experience mild aerobatics in preparation for your upset training in an experimental RV-6A!
