DISCOVERY FLIGHT

The first step in learning to fly

WHAT IS A DISCOVERY FLIGHT?

A Discovery Flight is the first step into the exciting world of aviation. Whether you want to learn to fly a small airplane, or have the goal of a lifelong aviation career, a discovery flight at Great Planes Aviation will introduce you to all the thrills aviation has to offer. Prior to the flight, you’ll be briefed on what to expect and how to preflight an airplane. After takeoff and reaching a safe altitude, your instructor will demonstrate the basics and hand the aircraft over to you, allowing you to manipulate the controls!

** Please note that discovery flights are intended for those interested in flight training.

DISCOVERY FLIGHT FAQ'S

How long does a discovery flight last? You will spend approximately 30 minutes on the ground with your instructor and approximately 45 minutes to an hour of flight time. 
Can I bring a friend? Sure! However please make sure to let us know beforehand if you plan to bring a friend. Airplanes have limits on the amount of weight they can carry, so we need to make sure we don't exceed the weight limit of the airplane.
