Here are the three introductory flight options:


Adventurer Discovery Flight Lesson

The engine is starting. You have completed your detailed ground briefing learning about your plane and how it flies.  You have gone over the pre-flight checklist with your Flight Instructor to make sure all is in readiness. The engine revs up and you are rolling down the runway.  Then you lift into the air. The ground looks familiar, yet in a way you have never seen before.  With the help of your FAA-certified Flight Instructor you pilot the plane where you have never been before, in the sky.

For 1-1/2 hours you cannot stop smiling as you see things from a whole new perspective. You wish you never have to land, but you do... Until the next time.


Pioneer Discovery Flight Lesson

You have completed your ground briefing and learned how your plane flies.  You and your FAA-certified Flight Instructor go over the pre-flight checklist. The engine starts, you feel the plane roll down the runway, and you are lifting off into a new 1 hour adventure.

You see the World from a different view. You and your Flight Instructor are at the controls flying the plane and you can't wait until the next time.


Explorer Discovery Flight Lesson (Full Motion Flight Simulator)

For your introductory flight, you start out with a short ground school with your FAA-certified flight instructor, which includes your pre-flight checklist.  Then for 1 hour you take-off and get a glimpse of what it is like to pilot your own plane.



Gift Certificates

You can buy someone an hour of flight training session and catapult their aviation career, or you can buy someone an hour of sight seeing flight and make their day... In any case you will give someone an experience to remember and one they will be telling their friends and loved ones about for long time.
