Acro Flights above Timisoara
We have a special recommendation for adrenaline lovers: an acrobatic flight with the only SkyBolt acro-plane in Romania. The plane will take you up about 3000 meters in the air. From that altitudine, the pilot will start doing loops, dives, and many other acrobatic maneuvers. The flights take about 15-20 minutes but, rest assured, that is plenty of time to feel the full power of the SkyBolt
The best thing is that the flights take place just 5 minutes away from Timisoara you can even get there with an Uber.
Please note, the plane has only two places: for the passenger and for the pilot. In case you want to live this experience with your friends, don’t worry, you can take turns.
