Book a Discovery Flight

Fly the Blue Skies Above and See if Flying is for You

What to Expect

The Discovery Flight is designed to offer a glimpse into the world of being a pilot. Spend around 60 minutes airborne and 60 minutes on the ground, accompanied by our certified flight instructors who'll introduce you to the basics of flying and address your questions. This is your chance to take control and feel the joy of flight firsthand.

During this flight, you'll occupy the pilot seat while our FAA Certified Flight Instructor guides you through the flight. The best first step for those eyeing an aviation career, seeking a new hobby, or even those looking for a unique gift for any age. You can bring along a friend to join the ride as long as we are meeting weight and balance requirements. At the flight's end, the instructor is ready to field any lingering questions.
