Organized in collaboration with Tianzi Lake Airport, Anji’s only airport, located on a spectacular site one hour north of the resort, this amazing flying experience provides an unforgettable journey soaring over the lush tapestry of mountains, towns, bamboo forests and lakes.
Guests can take to the skies with a choice of two aircrafts: a Cirrus SR-20 airplane or a Robinson R44 helicopter. The Cirrus SR-20 is a piston-engine, four-or- five-seater, composite monoplane, popular with flying schools as well as private individuals and companies. The R44 is a single-engine helicopter that can accommodate the pilot and three passengers.
The Cirrus SR-20 experience offers a choice of two 15-minute routes, flying over Tianzi Lake and Zhangwu Town, or over Tianzi Lake and Xianshan Lake. Those who dare can even have a go at co-piloting the aircraft – a must-try for flying enthusiasts. The Robinson R44 offers an 8-minute tour following the same routes but at a lower altitude of 300m, flying above the canopy of the bamboo forests.
The clean air in this region, with breathtaking views over Tianmu Mountain, provides good conditions for flying, for as many as 200 days a year. The airport’s team of professional coaches and pilots elevate the experience further, in sharing basic knowledge of aviation and simple flying operations.
