Discovery Flights

Flying Academy offers a variety of pilot training programs and courses, whether for leisure or to begin their professional path in aviation. Prior to enrolling in any pilot training course or program, Flying Academy provides the opportunity for aviation enthusiasts to take an introductory/discovery flight to experience what it feels like to be a pilot in the cockpit. 


The discovery flight is a 60 minutes flight lesson under the supervision of a Certified Flight Instructor. During the flight, the client will be treated just like an enrolled student. The aircraft in which they will explore the skies and partially be in control will generally be a small training single-engine aircraft – Cessna 152 or Cessna 172. The flight instructor will explain all procedures pre-flight, in-flight, and post-flight for your first adventure through the clouds. They will have the ability to control the training aircraft from the pilot’s seat.  If they feel comfortable, they will actually do most of the flying during the flight. Back on the ground, the instructor will issue a certificate to commemorate the day.
