Choose from Three Options
- $159 for a two-hour introductory flight lesson for one (up to a $298 value)
- $447 for an introductory flight lesson for two to the San Juan Islands (up to a $898 value)
During the introductory flight lesson for one, instructors provide a roughly one-hour preflight briefing before sending students skyward for 50–60 minutes of hands-on flight time per student. The quick jaunt through the clouds puts beginners at the controls for take-off, in-flight aerobatics, and landing while the instructors watches offering guidance and preventing the uninitiated from steering with their teeth. Students may bring up to two additional passengers to accompany them on the flight.
With the flight lesson for two to the San Juan Islands, two students gets everything in the normal intro flight lesson, plus additional flight time and about 1.5–2 hours exploring Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor after landing.

Wings Aloft BFI
Wings Aloft BFI'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 Aloft's Cessnas, and rental of their planes allows pilots to fly from city to city with proper clearance and large jet-stream hearts.
