2. The Ritz Carlton 'Fly High Dream High' Aviator Program
With the program, guests can enjoy a flying experience straight from the comfort of the hotel. Alex had tested it with his friend and here’s what he says:
“It started off at the lobby of 103th floor, where we had a dedicated check-in counter that resembled an airport check-in counter (I’ve forgotten how one of these looks like) and escorted to a suite.
I was being seated in a motion chair and given VR headset that brought me to the HK airspace. Departed from Chek Lap Kok, I flied over the Ritz Carlton and end with the-hair-raising-but-infamous tight turn into Kai Tak. The VR added such amazing feeling where I was then transported onto the flight deck while receiving awesome coaching from the pilots behind me.
There’s nothing quite like crashing multiple times, bouncing off the runway and ditching into Victoria Harbour to reaffirm your love for flying.”
