It’s just a taste of what it’s like to fly with the birds, but it’s enough to get you hooked! You will fly in one of our training aircraft*. Your instructor will demonstrate a takeoff. Once clear of the airport traffic pattern, the instructor will hand you the controls! Now you’re flying! Make the plane turn, climb, and descend while enjoying the views from above. After your instructor lands the airplane, you will be given a presentation of our Private Pilot course. Your instructor will also answer any questions you may have about learning how to fly. Please allow 60 minutes total time for the “Pioneer” Discovery Flight and course presentation. Total time in the aircraft is about 30 minutes, 20 minutes of which is in the air. *Aircraft assignment is based on availability and is at the discretion of LFTC.
This is a real flight lesson based on our Private Pilot syllabus! Assist your instructor in aircraft pre-flight procedures. Once in the cockpit of one of our training aircraft*, start the engine and taxi for takeoff. Perform the engine “run-up” procedures, then call the tower when you’re ready to fly. After takeoff, you will take the controls. Once reaching our “practice area”, the instructor will demonstrate several maneuvers including level flight, climbs, descents, and steep turns. Now it’s your turn! Maintain altitude, turn left and right to headings, and bank the aircraft to perform a complete circle. Now its time for “touch-and-goes” – practice landings. Learn about airport traffic patterns, power settings, flap settings, and landing procedures. Once you land on the runway (we know you haven’t had enough yet) – your instructor will apply power and takeoff again! Fly the pattern once more and land again. Please allow approximately 2 hours total time for the “Explorer” Discovery Flight which includes a course presentation. Total time in aircraft is about 1 hour and 5 minutes, 50 to 55 minutes of which is in the air. *Aircraft assignment can vary based on availability and is at the discretion of LFTC.
