Discovery Flight

Learn to fly!

If you want to learn to fly, our introductory “Discovery Flight” is your first flight lesson especially designed to give you the opportunity to see first-hand if flying is for you. A Discovery Flight provides the ideal opportunity to see what flying is all about! Because you will be flying with a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) the entire flight may be logged toward your future pilot’s license.

From pre-flight to takeoff to landing you will experience the hands-on fundamentals of flight. Your instructor will introduce you to the flight instruments, throttle, yoke and rudder pedals and how to use them to control the aircraft. With the help of your instructor, you will be allowed to pilot the aircraft in turns, climbs, and descents to see just what flying is all about.

Learning to fly is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable things you will ever do. When you take a discovery flight, you’ll be shown how to take the controls with one of our instructors to see what it’s like to fly a plane for yourself.

Whether you want to learn to fly for business, pleasure or simply something you have always wanted to do, Plane Nuts Aviation is here to help you reach meet your goals.
