Discovery Flight

Sit back and enjoy the ride of your life! Guided by an experienced Certified Flight Instructor, you will be able to take in the awe and beauty of flying "low and slow" in an open cockpit aircraft.

Cost: $100/20 minutes, $185/40 minutes, $250/60 minutes
   
Discovery Training Flight

Not only will you get to sit back and enjoy the ride, but you will also get to experience hands (and feet)-on control of aircraft. Our trainer plane is equipped with full dual controls - it can be controlled equally as well from the front and back seats. This flight experience starts with you assisting the instructor with chute layout and line separation, and the instructor then getting the aircraft safely airborne. After some demonstration of the aircraft controls by the instructor, you will be allowed to take control of the aircraft and really see what it is like to steer it and control its altitude. This is an excellent choice for those considering moving on to instruction beyond just the basic Discovery flight.

Cost: $185/40 minutes, $250/60 minutes

This is also a great way to learn about the sport as a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the sky.

Cost: $250/hour
