The Deal

  • $89 for a discovery-flight package ($145 value)

After 30 minutes of ground instruction, FAA-certified flight instructors join students as they take control of a single engine aircraft and pilot it up to 2,500 feet into the air before coming down for a safe landing. Students may use the ground instruction as a credential toward a private pilot license if they so choose.

Washington International Flight Academy

For more than 20 years, the FAA-certified flight instructors at Washington International Flight Academy have safely guided pupils skyward and imbued them with the skills necessary for numerous licenses and certifications. Under an instructor's watchful eye, guests control a Cessna 172 on a 30-minute airborne trek during discovery flights, which can later be applied toward courses for a private or commercial pilot’s license with optional multiengine rating. A commercial pilot’s license qualifies more seasoned flyers for instructor certification, where they learn how to teach essentials, including how to tell the difference between a landing airplane and a diving roc.

Along with in-depth courses, Washington International Flight Academy accommodates patrons with rentals of its massive fleet, charts and piloting supplies from its fully stocked shop, and lodging for out-of-state students.
