20 minutes ground lesson + 20 flight - Truckee

Flight for 1

Become a Pilot for a Day!

If you have ever dreamed of flight and wondered what it would be like to be a Pilot this Discovery (Introduction) Flight is for you! Not only is it cost effective but it’s also fun and offers you a once in a lifetime chance to truly experience what it’s like to soar! Discovery Flights will give you a hands-on experience of what it feels like to be a pilot for a day.

Expect your Discover Flight training to be a little over 40 minutes, in which you’ll spend 15 minutes on the ground with your Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) and go over SFAR Regulations, Basic Flight Preparations, and Pre-Flight Training. This 15 minute awareness training makes it possible for you to participate in flight training experiences.

After signing a Liability Release form and your official log book endorsement you will head out to the helicopter! Your professional Pilot will show you main components of the helicopter and walk you through some basic Pre-Flight Training. Then you will take off into the big blue!

During your flight, you will experience some helicopter maneuvers and receive coaching from your Certified Pilot. After a successful completion of the Discovery Flight you will receive a Certificate of Achievement – You have officially become a Pilot for a Day!

The Discovery Flight is the perfect way to see if flying helicopters is for you. Whether this has been a lifetime dream of yours, if you are a thrill seeker, of if you have had some interest in becoming a Pilot, this is the flight for you!

Great tour option to present as gifts! Can be used towards online Gift Certificate Purchase.
