If you've always dreamt of flying, this introductory flying lesson will give you a hands-on taste on what it's like!

Your lesson begins with meeting your Certified Flight Instructor and a pre-flight briefing before strapping yourself into the airplane and getting ready for departure. The flight includes roughly 45 minutes in the plane with the student at the controls of our aircraft. YOU FLY THE PLANE!

Once airborne, the fun part of learning to fly really begins. After a demonstration of how to maneuvre the aircraft, you get to take the controls. You’ll practice flying straight and level, climbing, descending, turns, and staying on a straight course ... easier said than done!

You can stay in control of the aircraft for most of the time if you want, or the instructor can take over while you enjoy the view and take a few pictures for lasting memories of the experience. As your flying lesson approaches its end, the instructor will take over for landing.

As a final bonus, should you get the flying bug and decide to get your license, this flying lesson counts towards flight time for your future pilot certification. You will be provided with a free student pilot logbook with the flight time logged from the flight. You'll already be on your way to becoming a pilot!
