Unlike a discovery flight, this will be a full lesson. Your instructor will contact you shortly after booking. They will give you the materials you need to prepare. The flight will be about 1.2 hours long and the total booking will take 1.5 – 2.0 hours.
You will learn about pre-flighting the aircraft, starting the engine, basic taxiing, turns, climbs, descents, flying straight and level, and you will learn the basics of a normal approach and landings.
The listed price assumes 1.6h scheduled time and 1.2h flight time with one of our instructors in our C150s.
After your flight, if the lesson runs shorter and cheaper than listed, the balance left over may be refunded or credited towards your next flight.
If the lesson runs longer and costs more than listed, you will need to pay the remaining balance.
What to Bring:
- Driver’s License
- Proof of US Citizenship (US passport or original birth certificate)
- Credit or Debit Card
- Pilot Certificates (if you have any)
- Medical (if you have one)
- Logbook (if you have one)
- C172: 575 lbs total for all passengers
- C150: 200 lbs for passenger
- US Citizen
- Keep in mind, we may need to reschedule your flight.
- We typically only reschedule flights for weather, maintenance inspections, and student checkrides.
- If you need to cancel, please let us know at least 30h in advance, no questions asked. If you cancel on the same day, you may be subject to a cancellation fee.
By booking the flight, you agree to our terms of service.
Select Your Aircraft
Don’t worry too much about your aircraft choice at this initial stage; you’re free to switch between planes throughout your training. If cost savings is a priority and you’re on the smaller side, the Cessna 150 is a fantastic choice. On the other hand, if you value extra space and cockpit comfort, the Cessna 172 will serve you well.
Both of these Cessna models have stood the test of time in terms of reliability. In fact, some Cessna 150s and 172s built as far back as the 1950s are still airborne today, showcasing their enduring quality. Choose the plane that best suits your current needs, and rest assured that you’ll be flying in a tried-and-true aircraft.
Our entry-level training aircraft offers a cost-effective solution but does come with its own set of considerations. The interior space is more compact compared to our roomier four-seater, and there are specific weight restrictions to keep in mind.
If you find yourself above the 185-pound mark or taller than 6’2″, you’ll likely be more comfortable in our four-seater Cessna 172s. We can make small weight adjustments by managing fuel levels for those just above the weight threshold. While this is a safe practice, it’s essential to understand that less fuel equates to a reduced duration for your flying lessons.
The Cessna 172 stands as a hallmark of reliable training, earning its stripes in flight schools globally. Its enduring reputation speaks volumes about its effectiveness as a teaching tool.
If you’re considering bringing a friend or family member on your discovery flight, this is the go-to option. Unlike the two-seater 150, the 172 offers four seats, allowing you to share the joy of aviation with someone special.
