If you’ve ever had the dream of flying your own airplane, climb aboard an amazing experience with this introductory flight lesson!
This learn to fly experience is a great way to figure out if becoming a pilot is right for you. Your FAA Certified Flight Instructor will start things off with a pre-flight inspection where you’ll learn how to check the fuel, the oil and instruments to determine if the Piper Warrior airplane are airworthy.
After the pre-flight inspection, it's time to hop into the pilot's seat and take the controls. Your instructor will be right beside you, guiding you through the motions, but other than take-off and landing you'll do the majority of the flying yourself.
This experience is no passive ride-along. Your introductory flight lesson is designed for you to do as much as possible so you can really get a feel for what being a pilot is like. During the lesson, you will experience all different aspects of flight, have a great time, and experience enough to decide whether you want to continue learning to fly and pursue a pilot’s license.
Through this introductory flight lesson, you'll experience all the different phases of flight and feel the unparalleled exhilaration and freedom of flying an airplane!
