$65 to Fly an Airplane During a 30-Minute Discovery Flight ($129 Value)

Upon arriving at WNC Aviation’s office in the Lacey Griffin Aviation Center at the Asheville Regional Airport for a discovery flight, students receive training materials and a briefing from the flight instructor. Next, the instructor leads a preflight inspection on a Cessna 172. Students then perform the takeoff themselves, before executing gentle turns and maneuvers.

WNC Aviation

The full-time professional flight instructors of WNC Aviation help aspiring aeronauts unfurl their wings and also refresh professional pilots on essential flying skills with a personal and career-training curriculum. Crews let experienced aviators take to the skies in an aircraft from the fully insured fleet, or teach beginners flight basics within a private or small-group setting. A full-motion simulator allows captains to perfect their “fasten your seatbelt” speeches, and an FAA-certified training program runs through the entire certification process under real-world conditions at the school’s controlled, uncongested airport.
