- $139 for a two-hour introductory flying lesson (a $300 value)
Lessons begin with one hour of basic aerodynamics instruction on the ground followed by a walk-around of the actual plane and the completion of a pre-flight checklist. From there, students will have the opportunity to guide the aircraft during takeoff and fly along the coast of Fort Lauderdale while an on-board flight instructor provides useful guidance, assistance, and safety tips.

Whether you're an aspiring pilot or an adventure enthusiast, Sky High Aviation’s instructors can place the clouds within reach. With a well-maintained fleet of single- and multi-engine planes by Cessna, Piper, and Cirrus parked in the hangars of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, the training center arranges flights that can either introduce people to the joys of flying or provide the in-air hours required for piloting licenses and certification. But regardless of the type of flight, Sky High Aviation indulges visitors with a birds-eye look at the southern Florida coastline, complete with views of crystalline waters, sandy beaches, and flocks of Midwesterners making their yearly migration south.
