Introductory Flight


Have you ever dreamed of becoming a pilot?  Join us for an introductory flight lesson. This discounted one hour lesson includes 60 minutes behind the controls and a 60 minute ground briefing to give you the basic idea of what it means to be a pilot.

Meet your certified pilot instructor in the General Aviation Terminal before accompanying them to the R172K Cessna Hawk XP II for a preflight inspection. Inside the dual-control cockpit, you will go over the basic controls before takeoff. Learn to start the engine and taxi out to the runway before handing over the controls to the pilot for takeoff. Once airborne, you will have the opportunity to try several basic maneuvers. After 60 minutes of flying, you will return to the hangar for a detailed ground brief in which all of your questions about flying and obtaining a pilot’s license will be answered.
