Discovery Flight


The Discovery Flight is designed to help you understand what flying is about and all that is involved. It lasts about 30 minutes. As lesson #1, it is designed to show you what flying an airplane is like, a chance to explain what learning to fly is all about, and to meet the staff and tour our flight school. 


Once the pre-flight checks are completed, it’s time to take off and “slip the surly bonds.” In the air you will do most of the flying, learning how to turn, climb, descend, and slow down/speed up: generally getting the feel for the airplane. You will be surprised how easy it really is and how awesome it feels to be flying your own airplane. After joining the traffic pattern at the airport you and your instructor will land the aircraft.


A Discovery Flight usually takes an hour to complete, including the 30-minute flight. The cost of a Discovery Flight is $99.00 plus tax.
