It is the moment you've been working for! It is time to learn what the first free flight should look like and begin planning to take your parrot(s) outdoors unrestrained. If you are in Scotland and close to your mentor, then we will be more than happy to be there to support you. If you are further away we can plan a video call if you want us to be there for you! This is a big step to take and it can make you a little anxious, but that is okay. We believe in you and we are here to support you.

Once you have achieved your very first free flight (or the first few!) it is time to book Class 6 to learn how to further your skill.

While flying for the first time you will naturally be anxious, therefore having this document open on your phone should you need an extra hand would be beneficial!
