I remember one of my best holidays. I was in Form Five (SPM year) and my parents came across an ad promoting an EAA Young Eagles Flying School Camp in Ulu Bernam. I excitedly asked my friends to ask their parents to allow them to join me. A week away with my friends! What an adventure! Two of them got the "ok" and our parents registered us.
We slept in tents under the starry sky and learned different things on different days. We gossiped the nights away. I can't remember how the food was but I remember us getting up really early to take our turns to shower and start on our duties. We learned to read the compass, the basic terms used in aviation, calculation methods, how to read maps and, of course, make more friends. The best part of that camp was being able to navigate a flight with a professional pilot (who most of the girls had a crush on).
Anyhow, back to the present, with the long holidays in June, you can now send your kids to fun camps and parties!
BEST EVENTS can organize one day or weekend Amazing Races for kids 9 years and above (and of course for the adults as well). We'll arrange for packed meals, t-shirts, caps, and activities to last either half a day or a full day. Just call us at least three weeks in advance. Amazing Races can be done in your own home or neighhbourhood to avoid having to go to the local municipal council to apply for permits.
For the more adventurous, why not take basic flying lessons? Here are some to choose from:
1) DISCOVERY/TRIAL FLIGHT
