What is a Discovery Flight?
It is an opportunity for you to actually fly an airplane under the direction of
a certificated flight instructor. I will help you taxi out, takeoff, and you will
do the airwork.
The flight itself will last about half of an hour, and you can plan on
spending a total of an hour with us. Prior to the flight I will walk you
through the necessary Pre-Flight inspection, which usually takes fifteen
minutes. Upon arrival back at The Airport the remainder of the time can
be used for any questions that you might have for me and, in terms of
how you felt about the flight or how to go about getting yourself on the
schedule so that you can start your flying adventure! I will answer all of
your questions about learning to fly, and explain how you can become a
safe, competent pilot. The cost of the flight is $80.00.
Is it really safe to fly?
Yes! When properly trained.
Are there any age requirements?
My students range from 14 years of age to 80. According to FAA
regulations, you must be 16 in order to solo in an aircraft, and 17 to get
your Private Pilot License.
Is learning to fly difficult?
Learning to fly is not nearly as difficult as one might think. You will go
through a step-by-step process that will make learning to fly as easy as
driving a car.
