The Deal

  • $89 for a one-hour introductory flight lesson ($200 value)

Students may apply their flight time to the total time required to obtain an FAA-approved pilot's license. For an additional $25 fee, one guest can tag along on introductory flights to provide a cappella renditions of "Danger Zone."

Freeway Airport

For more than half a century, Freeway Airport's certified flight school has launched new students skyward seven days a week under the guidance of its veteran instructors. One-hour discovery flights begin at ground level amid tranquil surroundings as instructors provide an introduction to flight principles and instruments. As eyes soak in the pilot's seat view, ears absorb instruction on use of the throttle, yoke, and rudder pedals. Once airborne, pupil-piloted aircrafts turn, climb, descend, and deliver top-secret dossiers to the lords of the cloud people.
