We get to see, touch and enter helicopters and airplane cockpits for real. There’s also helicopter joyrides at RM150 per person.

We also managed to meet up with Captain James Anthony Tan and his plane. Captain James Tan is the youngest pilot to fly solo around the world.

If you are afraid to go on the real air glider, you can always try the simulator provided by aDmaL Aviation College. Ethan crashed the first few rounds but after that he flew like a pro :)

Subang International Air Carnival 2014_itinerary

We did not manage to catch the flying displays today but we did manage to see fly-passes by commercial airlines. The thing is we don’t know the exact time for the flying displays so it is a little hassle to stick around and keep waiting as I have a 9 month old baby tagging along and it is kinda hot over here. I was there from morning until about 1pm and the latest I heard the display was around 3-5pm. Argh! Nevermind, I’ll try to go again tomorrow and catch it!

Ok now let’s be clear about the location. It is NOT at the old Subang airport. It is at Skypark Regional Aviation Centre in Section U3, Shah Alam. For those who are using Google map or Waze just type in – SPACE U8 Eco Mall and once you are there, you’ll be able to see DB Schenker Logistic. Turn left and you have arrived your destination :)
