5.Aero Club Como  

Lake Como is a beautiful area to explore, the breath taking way to do this is to step into a (old) airplane to start your adventure with Aero Club Como!

The seaplanes have been flying over Como for about a century.
Some of the war planes they used to use at that time date back to 1963. Dont worry, it’s safe and the pilots have lots of expierence!
