Your first flying lesson will typically be a two hour appointment with a FAA certified flight instructor. The actual flight portion of the lesson is nearly one hour. We do have other introductory flight lesson packages available ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
30 minute flight certificates are ideal for a very quick look at learning to fly.
60 minute flight certificates allows the new aviator to experience a real first flight lesson complete with preflight briefing and a lot more hands-on flight experience.
We also offer a two hour flight experience which allows you to get a more in depth look at what flying and learning this great skill is about.
After briefing you on our flight training program, the instructor will perform a walk around inspection (preflight inspection) of the aircraft together with you.
For the flight portion, you will take the pilot seat on the left. Other than for takeoff and landing, where the instructor will be assisting you, we want you to be handling the controls at all times during this flight.You will perform some basic maneuvering under the safe guidance of your flight instructor.
If you would like to share the experience with another person you are welcome to have them fly along (certain restrictions apply).
You can arrange for a first flying lesson directly in our pilot shop online or call us at (818) 769 1503.
