Discovery flights and tours, which take place in a cozy Piper Tomahawk airplane, are ideal for anyone considering the aerial career path of a pilot. The lesson begins with 15–30 minutes of ground training and includes a variety of preflight procedures. Following this earthbound orientation, you'll take to the skies for 30 minutes (from startup to shutdown) of hands-on, instructor-guided flying, learning how to turn, climb, descend, and read the GPS system with real-time satellite weather. If you aren't interested in piloting the Piper Tomahawk, you can perch above the skies crying "Nevermore!" with an aerial tour instead. During the hands-free experience, you will float above the earth's crust for a customized tour of the city, scoping out views of your house, the Guadalupe river, downtown New Braunfels, Canyon Lake, Texas State University, or anywhere else that strikes your flying fancy. Whether piloting or passengeering, you'll be treated to a variety of sublime natural views.
