What to Expect

Your journey begins as you join our certificated flight instructor in a simulator where you will learn what makes an airplane fly as well as becoming familiar with the aircraft’s flight controls and instruments. Before heading to the ramp, you and your instructor will then receive a pre-flight weather briefing and plan your flying adventure.

After an aircraft preflight inspection, you’ll take the pilot’s seat in a Cessna 172 or a Piper 100i, some of the most popular and comfortable single-engine aircraft in the world. With you at the controls, your instructor will provide assistance as you experience the thrill of takeoff.

For the next 60 minutes, the airplane is in your hands . . . your instructor will first demonstrate and then observe you perform basic flying maneuvers while you enjoy the marvelous view. Your introductory flight could be the first step to becoming a private pilot; it may be the realization of your lifelong dream.
