Before flight passengers must understand the following briefing about Warrior Warbirds Adventure Flights;
- THIS IS NOT A CHARTER FLIGHT, JOYFLIGHT OR SCENIC FLIGHT.
- This is an Adventure Category flight and is not required to meet the same standards as normally expected in other passenger carrying operations.
- The aircraft is an ex-military type, and does not have normal civilian Certification.
- There is risk inherent in the operation of this aircraft.
- The manoeuvres to be expected are loops, rolls, stall turns, and wingovers; which will cause the passenger to experience positive ‘g’ and perhaps negative ‘g’. You may ask the pilot to cease aerobatics at any point.
- The aircraft has active controls in the passenger cockpit which must not be interfered with at any time. Hands and feet must remain clear of the joystick and rudder pedals.
- The aircraft is relatively noisy but there is an intercom button which requires the microphone to be near the mouth while holding down in order to operate. Passengers are encouraged to converse with the pilot, though they may be asked to hold conversation due to radio requirements from time to time.
- There will be several noises heard during flight and ground operations, since the aircraft operating systems are largely pneumatic. For example, you will hear (and feel) the undercarriage retraction/extension.
- You will be shown how to operate your harness and canopy. Passengers must advise the pilot if they have any concerns about their harness or how they are feeling. The canopy must remain closed in flight, and only opened with the pilot’s permission once on the ground.
- Passengers must be accompanied to and from the aircraft by Warrior Warbirds staff.
- In an emergency, you must follow the instructions of the pilot, including instruction to exit the aircraft after releasing your harness and opening the canopy when on the ground. In an emergency, you may exit the aircraft via either side and leave the immediate vicinity of the aircraft to a place of safety.
Passengers must sign an acknowledgement form before flight indicating they understand and will comply with these conditions.
Flights may be re-scheduled at short notice due to safety issues, environmental or otherwise. These issues include;
- Unsuitable or dangerous weather.
