Discovery Flights

$25 Discovery Flights

Do you have “the right stuff” to be a pilot? On Saturday, September 24, various Flight Training schools will offer special $25 Discovery Flight and ride-alongs for those interested in pursuing a Private Pilot’s License.  The flights are approximately 20 minutes long and are highly recommended for anyone interested in aviation.

You will fly with a FAA Certified Flight Instructor, as the co-pilot or a flight crew member. You will take-off from Opa-Locka Executive Airport and fly the traffic pattern around the airport.  As co-pilot, you will learn to maintain the airplane in straight & level flight and make turns.

The goal of this flight is to see if you are comfortable in a small aircraft and if flying is something you want to pursue. Even if you choose not to become a pilot, it is an exciting experience for yourself or would be great as a gift. Ready to Fly?
