The one-hour lesson begins with a preflight briefing, during which an FAA-certified flight instructor reviews basic aircraft controls, flight maneuvers, and safety procedures. Shortly after takeoff from Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport, the instructor lets the student take control to practice basic maneuvers, including level flight, climbs, descents, and turns. Upon their return, the instructor reviews takeoffs and landings and holds a postflight debriefing on solid ground. After the lesson, students receive their own flight catalog, logbook, and certificate.
Aviators Flight Academy
The certified flight instructors at Aviators Flight Academy have been helping fledgling pilots earn their wings for more than three decades. Students take off from Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport toward the earth’s giant blue tarp using the academy’s fleet of Cessna and Piper fixed-wing aircraft, performing basic maneuvers under a teacher’s expert supervision. Beyond introductory lessons, students can also enroll in the flight-training school to earn their license and finally be able to impersonate pilots at airport bars.
