Book a Discovery Flight

Each discovery flight is approximately one hour long and is intended to familiarize the participant with the airplane, airport, and flying environment. The participant will be allowed to fly the airplane with an authorized instructor providing instruction. Typically, the participant will receive instruction on climbs, turns and descents. Depending on comfort level, the instructor may even introduce a private pilot training maneuver. 

The participant will meet with the instructor on the day of the discovery flight, where he will guide the participant to the airplane and perform a preflight inspection. Once the inspection is complete, the airplane will be started and flown to the local practice area. At a safe altitude, the instructor will give the student controls and provide instruction on the fundamentals of flight. 

Our certificated FAA Flight Instructor will teach the participant some basic principles about flight prior to departing on your first flight in the aircraft.  The participant will get a chance to learn about starting the aircraft, taxiing the aircraft to the runway of departure, departing procedures, and a chance to manage the controls of the aircraft, all under the control of one of our flight instructors.  Discovery flight packages are intended for one person only, since it is considered an introductory training flight by the FAA.  Depending upon the age of the student, a parent may accompany their child with the permission from the flight instructor giving the flight.
