Discovery Flight

What is a discovery flight?

Stepping into the world of flight training is easier than you think!  Perfect for future pilots, adventurers, or those looking to gift a unique birthday present.

A Discovery Flight is an introductory flight anyone can take where YOU get to fly the airplane!  You don’t need to be a pilot or have any idea about aviation.  This flight is approximately 1 hour in a private airplane with a capacity of 4 seats.  Your discovery flight will be out of the East Phoenix Valley, and will give you beautiful views of the entire Phoenix valley and beyond.  You will be accompanied by a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) the whole time who will land the airplane, however the rest of the flight you’ll get to fly the airplane yourself… including the takeoff if you’d like!

Whether you’ve wanted to learn how to fly and become a professional pilot or if you just want to check an item off your bucket list, this is the flight for you.  It is intended to familiarize you with the airplane, the sensations and sight picture which come from being in the cockpit, and with the joy of aviation. You’ll have a Certified Flight Instructor with you at all times showing you the ropes and letting you fly.  This means you get to sit in the pilot seat (left side) and fly as much or as little as you want.  Your instructor will execute a safe takeoff and landing, and then you’ll have the opportunity to do all the flying with expert guidance.

Your discovery flight in the Phoenix area is completely customizeable for the casual flier you take a 1 hour tour around the valley.  For people ready to jump right into lessons, you can head to a “practice area” and learn the basics of controlled flight.  Either way, you get to fly the airplane and have the time of your life!
