Discovery flight lessons at the FAA-approved Airborne Systems Flight Training centers offer a detailed overview of preflight planning before setting off into the skies in a Cessna 172 SP. Runways at both airports provide the necessary legroom for pilots in training to realize their dreams, which mostly involve becoming giant metal birds that dart between clouds and drink Capri Sun fresh from its fiery source. For the first 15 minutes of the 60-minute lesson, flight instructors take great care in explaining the processes of readying a plane for uplift. Together you'll check the weather and test flaps, rudders, and engine fuel before taking off into the great blue Earthling/Martian divide during the remaining 45 minutes of your lesson.
