Learn to Fly

Discovery Flight

A Discovery Flight is your chance to get a feel for what flying is really all about and how much fun it can be! It will help you see first-hand the training, aircraft, and quality of instruction that you will experience with us. It is also a great way to get a sense of what it’s like to fly from behind the controls. It is the perfect first flight for prospective students, as well as those who simply want to see the world from the air for an afternoon! You will be set up with a flight instructor who will guide you and answer any questions you may have during the flight. 

Does this sound like something you’ve always wanted to do? Then what are you waiting for? Contact us today to get started!

Discovery Flights start at just $125.00 (fuel surcharge may apply)

Gift Certificate

Give the gift of flight! A gift certificate is perfect for the person in your life who wants to pursue their dream of becoming a pilot, or someone who is looking for some inspiration. It is also great for those who simply want to see the world from a new point of view for an afternoon!

What are my options? You may purchase a gift certificate for any amount you like. For reference, our Discovery Flights are offered in ½ hour and 1 hour increments, and cost approximately $125 and $205 respectively. If you are purchasing a gift for a pilot who would like to rent from us, our aircraft rent for $155 per flight hour.

Gift Certificates start at $125.00
