Introductory Flight Lesson Packages

Fly a Real Aircraft

Take the controls and experience the fun!

Your lesson begins with an instructor first explaining the basics of aerodynamics and flying. You'll practice aircraft takeoff, flying and landing in our full-motion simulator. Then you'll prepare the real aircraft for flight. The instructor will guide you in the inspection of aircraft surfaces, controls and instruments and finally climb aboard with you and your guest, if any. Shortly after takeoff you'll be given control of the aircraft until you return for landing.

Full Package$399
Flight Only$249
Simulator Only$119

Superior to Comparable Offers

Cheaper deals may look good, but you get what you pay for...

Our introductory lessons use Cessna 172SP aircraft and our 3-axis full-motion 6-screen simulator. Competitive offers show you fancy pictures, but then use a tiny desktop simulator and much older aircraft (think vinyl seating). If you want a quality lesson with the best equipment, this is it.
