Flight Experience Gifts for dad from Breakaway Experiences Giveaway

This post has been brought to you by Breakaway Experiences. All opinions are my own

As an adult, finding dad the perfect gift on Father’s day is tough! My dad is all about needs and not wants so he never really buys himself anything and does not tell people what he would like. Now that we live across the country from him it is even tougher. I do know he has pretty much everything as do most parents, so getting him something he will just forget about or toss in the corner is not my idea of a great gift. I want to give him something he will remember for many years. Something like an experience from Breakaway Experiences.

As a little girl growing up in Calgary we always watched the hot air balloons and enjoyed it. Then as a teen in Ontario our family would spend the day together watching the air show with the planes and jets flying over us. I think my dad would truly enjoy a flight experience this Father’s day!

Below are just a few of the experiences available through Breakaway Experiences . Check them out!

Helicopter flights

See the sights below from a unique perspective on one of Breakaway Experiences helicopter tours or joy flights. Dad can just sit back, relax and enjoy the fantastic view of the Rocky Mountains, 1000 Islands or Ottawa’s Parliament Buildings and Gatineau Hills.  Or if Dad’s  serious heli-fan, why not grab the controls and learn to fly a helicopter? Dad can just sit back, relax and enjoy the fantastic view of the Rocky Mountains, the CN Tower, 1000 Islands or Ottawa’s Parliament Buildings and Gatineau Hills.

Scenic flights

You can surprise Dad this year with a stunning scenic flight or flying lesson. He’ll feel his adrenaline buzz as he soars through the sky and takes in breath-taking views. Breakaway Experiences’ scenic flights are available across the country with flights over the Coast Mountains in British Columbia, the prairies in Wetaskiwin, Alberta and Brandon, Manitoba, the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, the CN Tower in Toronto and Niagara Falls.

Up, up and away…in an open cockpit vintage biplane.

Take a trip back in time and enjoy a scenic biplane ride. Breakaway Experiences has biplane flights in Ottawa and Wetaskwin (Alberta, south of Edmonton) that will take you back in time to the golden age of aviation. Strap on your goggles and aviator’s cap and get a bird’s eye view from the open cockpit of a vintage biplane.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Show Dad the world from a different perspective with an unforgettable hot air balloon ride. Lift off and ride the wind in Calgary, Edmonton, Grand Prairie, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Ottawa, Regina, Saskatchewan, and Winnipeg.

Flight Simulator

If he’s always wanted to say, “This is your captain speaking”, then a Breakaway’s flight simulator experience in Montreal and Toronto is for him Dad can take the controls of a jet airliner and enjoy an ultra realistic flight simulation. It may only be a flight simulator, but the sensation he’ll feel is the real deal.

I imagine any dad would love one of these experiences as a gift! Which would you choose?
