With the pilot, you plan your flight: where do you want to go, have you ever flown an aircraft, have you ever done aerobatics are the first questions he will ask you. A schedule will then be established taking into account your wishes, flight duration, weather, flight restriction zones etc.
The pilot will also explain the effect of accelerations, how to support them, the flight paths he thinks he will take.
About twenty-five minutes before takeoff, you board the plane. With the help of the mechanic, you strap yourself onto the seat. The pilot joins you and, after making sure that you are well settled, he starts his checklist.

Do you love acceleration? Tell him that.
Are you too hot, do you feel bad? Tell him that.
