Basic Discovery Flight

Regular price$250.00

Your first step to your aviation career!

The excitement begins with a 15-minute ground lesson in which you learn the basics of flight controls and instruments. This brief lesson prepares you for 45-60 minutes in flight! You'll start the engine, taxi the airplane out to the runway, takeoff, climb, cruise, turn and descend around the airport.

Even during approach and landing, you're at the controls the entire time, safely guided by an FAA-certificated flight instructor who is also at a duplicate set of controls.  This first flight can be entered into your logbook towards training.

The flight instructor is on hand to answer any questions about the process of learning to fly and assist in taking lots of photos of your adventure.
