Smith Field Air Service’s CFI-rated instructors impart aspiring aviators with piloting knowhow and transform the cockpit into a classroom as student and teacher take flight. The introductory flight begins with a 30-minute ground session, as flight instructors acquaint amateur aeronauts with basic piloting principles and perform a preflight inspection to evict high-flying hitchhikers. Once airships have been cleared to sail the high skies, pilot and protégé will raise anchor and chart a course for the clouds. During the 30-minute flight, prospective pilots will have a chance to command the controls and perform basic flight maneuvers, such as the wing-tip toe-tap.
