If you’re serious about wanting to earn a Private Pilot certificate but have never flown a small airplane before, then a discovery flight is the first step. A discovery flight is not an aerial sightseeing tour where you are a passive passenger. When you fly with us, you’ll receive a real flight lesson during which you get to experience the freedom and satisfaction of controlling an airplane from takeoff to touchdown. The airplane has dual flight controls so your instructor can help you or take over at any time.

The experience includes a detailed pre-flight safety briefing as well as a post-flight debriefing and discussion of our training program. During the experience you will learn some of the basic principles of flight including:

  • How the flight controls are used to maneuver the airplane
  • How the wings generate the lift required to keep the airplane aloft
  • The redundant safety features that are incorporated into the design of the airplane
