Come and fly with us!
Thailand, with friendly people, well-equipped airports, interesting airstrips and helpful air traffic controllers makes a great place to fly. There are very few days in the year when the weather hampers VFR flying and the stunning scenery amongst the hills and mountains of this northern province make piloting relatively easy and great fun.
