DISCOVERY FLIGHT PACKAGES
If you're new to flying, one of our instructors can guide you in actually taking the controls of an airplane to see if flying is right for you. All discovery flight options include a certificate of training with instructor endorsements. The training time in these packages can be applied towards a private pilot certificate. To qualify for any discovery flight package, the student must:
- Not already have a pilot's license.
- Be at least 15 years of age.
- Reside within an hour and a half drive from the Middletown Airport.
Basic Discovery Flight
A staple in the industry, this standard familiarization lesson includes one 30-minute pre-flight lesson and one 30-minute flight lesson in one of our Cessna 172 aircraft. On the ground, you receive instruction on how to inspect the aircraft prior to flight. In the airplane, you will be introduced to ground operations, take-off, climbs, turns, descents, and landing.
Ultimate Discovery Flight Package
$650.00 (Full) | $409.00 (Reduced)*
A very in-depth exploration of our training program, this advanced familiarization package includes two formal ground lessons and three flight lessons. Total instruction recieved is 4.5 hours of ground and 2.5 hours of flight in a Cessna 172. On the ground, you receive instruction on general aviation, licensing, our programs, human factors, and airplane systems. In the airplane, you will be introduced to ground operations, take-offs, climbs, turns, descents, slow flight, stalls, and landings.
* Full price is for all one-on-one, student-and-instructor lessons (both ground and flight). To get the reduced price, the student must attend the first two private pilot ground lessons shown on the dates listed on our ground school page in a group classroom setting (the flight lessons will still be one-on-one).
