Choose Between Two Options

During this lesson, instructors provide a roughly one-hour preflight briefing before sending students skyward for 50–60 minutes of hands-on flight time. The quick jaunt through the clouds puts beginners at the controls for take-off, in-flight aerobatics, and landing while the instructor watches on, offering guidance and preventing the uninitiated from steering with their teeth. Students may bring two additional passengers along on the flight.

  • $1,195 for an introduction-to-flying package (a $2,395 value)

This package provides students with 50 hours of dedicated ground-school instruction, combining lectures, group discussions, and practical exercises with four hours of in-flight training to impart the knowledge required to obtain a private pilot license. The package also includes a Wings Aloft BFI membership, which grants access to Wings' stable of well-maintained planes and a loaner private pilot kit, which is required for the ground-school course. The loaner kit is included with this deal.

Wings Flying Club

Wings Flying Club's experienced flight instructors share their love of cloud wrangling during hands-on lessons that help pupils log hours of in-flight and ground instruction. The instructors are matched with students based on personality fits, and their instructional flight programs mix and match ground and in-flight lessons to teach students that staying airborne requires more than a pair of pigeon wings. The membership program also grants access to Wings Flying Club's Cessnas, and rental of their planes allows pilots to fly from city to city with proper clearance and large jet-stream hearts.
