Your Discovery Flight is an introduction to the exciting and rewarding world of aviation. Unlike the limited and cramped view in an airline seat, you will enjoy a front seat panoramic view which few have experienced! After a short briefing with one of our FAA Certified Flight Instructors, who will explain the magic formula which keeps an airplane in the air, you will then buckle into the pilot’s seat and get ready for a life-changing adventure.
Following your instructor’s guidance, you will:
- Learn to use the aircraft checklist to safely conduct all phases of flight
- Learn to “taxi” an airplane on the ground
- Listen in and learn the basics of radio use
- Execute a perfect takeoff, with a little help 🙂
- Learn the basics of aircraft control through climbs, descents, turns, and level flight
- Finally, return to the airport and follow your instructor through a smooth landing
Your Discovery Flight will have you airborne for approximately one hour, during which time you will soar over downtown Tallahassee and Florida State University. Your flight plan can also be customized if you would like to see your home or business from the air. Your flight instructor and our staff will be happy to answer any questions before, during, and after your flight. You will learn everything it takes to obtain your pilot’s license. Whether you want to fly for fun or for a career, we will help to launch your dream into becoming a reality!
Discovery flights cost $200 and can be scheduled any day of the week during daylight hours. We recommend calling at least one week ahead of your requested date to ensure availability.
