Soar to new heights as you start your journey toward earning your wings with this exciting flying lesson!
Whether you dream of becoming a pilot, you’re checking an item off your bucket list, or you just want to see the world from the sky, this Learn To Fly lesson is the perfect introduction into the wild blue yonder.
You’ll kick things off when you meet your FAA Certified Flight Instructor, who will walk you through basic ground instruction. You’ll be flying in either a Cessna 172 or Piper PA-28, and you’ll learn how to check the fuel, the oil, and the instruments to make sure the plane is airworthy.
Then it’s time to take to the skies. Climb into the pilot's seat and get ready for take-off. Your instructor will be right beside you, taxiing down the runway and lifting up into the sky. But once you reach cruising altitude, you’ll be the one at the controls.
This flying lesson is no sightseeing tour. Taking the controls, you’ll really get a feel for what it’s like to pilot your own plane. During this lesson, you'll learn basic flight maneuvers, experience all the different phases of flight, and feel the unparalleled exhilaration and freedom of flying an airplane!
