How do FunFlight support FunFlight Day events?

We also have a knowledgeable board of directors who are able to answer any aviation questions that you may have. The FunFlight team will help assist you with:
    • Promoting your event to much needed families through registered charities. 
    • Setting up a registration page for your event where families will book their tickets.
    • Providing you with all documentation needed for the event including disclaimer forms and photo media release forms.
    • Providing merchandise needed for the event including caps, banners, boarding passes and wrist bands.
    • Reimbursing your aero club with the aeroplane fuel cost to run your event.

Pilots – FunFlight Captains

How can I volunteer to become a FunFlight Captain?
  • If you are interested in volunteering to be a FunFlight Captain, please check if your local aero club is participating. If they are participating, please register as a FunFlight Capitan here and indicate which event you will be flying out from.
  • If your local aero club is not participating in FunFlight, it is recommended that you promote this event to your club and encourage them to participate. Otherwise, you are still welcomed to register as a FunFlight Capitan here and we will find a nearby event that can use your help!
