Book a Discovery Flight
Each discovery flight is approximately an hour long and is intended to familiarize you with the airplane, airport, and flying environment. You will be able to fly the airplane with an instructor giving you instruction. Typically, the participant will receive instruction on climbs, turns and descents. Depending on comfort level, the instructor may even introduce a private pilot maneuver.
The participant will meet with the instructor on the day of the discovery flight, where he will guide the student 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 you some basic principles about flight prior to departing on your first flight in the aircraft. You will get a chance to learn about starting the aircraft, taxing the aircraft to the runway of departure, the 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.
