When you enter the hangar, you'll see cool small planes!

When completing the boarding procedures, you move to the hangar. After the rattly door is opened, you'll face the plane and automatically start taking photos!

Finally going down the runway.

A small Cessna plane proceeds to the runway alongside a large passenger plane. Listening to the communication between the captain and the air traffic controller right next to you is one of the best things about small planes.

Time for take off!

After takeoff, the plane quickly gains altitude and takes to the sky. You can overlook the tea fields and mountains of Kirishima.

Feel and experience the mind-blowing impact of Sakurajima!

You'll only be able to say, "Wow!" "It's so close!" "Amazing!" It's true that we become at a loss for words when absolutely moved.

Kinko Bay with quiet waves.

Heading back to Kagoshima Airport while gazing at Kinko Bay with its quiet waves, as if trying to contain excitement.
