What an amazing experience. Once you figure out the plane sort of flies itself (the way a car goes straight on it's own) it's really a lot easier than I thought it would be.

I got the discovery flight as a present for my boy friend and he absolutely loved it! I paid the extra $30 fee so I could sit in the back during the flight and take pictures. Kenny, the instructor, was wonderful! We will be back!

Literally the best experience of my life! I had so much learning about the planes and actually having the ability to take over and fly on my own...really a lot of fun!

From Our Editors

For more than 20 years, the FAA-certified flight instructors at Washington International Flight Academy have safely guided pupils skyward and imbued them with the skills necessary for numerous licenses and certifications. Under an instructor's watchful eye, guests control a Cessna 172 on a 30-minute airborne trek during discovery flights, which can later be applied toward courses for a private or commercial pilot’s license with optional multiengine rating. A commercial pilot’s license qualifies more seasoned flyers for instructor certification, where they learn how to teach essentials, including how to tell the difference between a landing airplane and a diving roc.

Along with in-depth courses, Washington International Flight Academy accommodates patrons with rentals of its massive fleet, charts and piloting supplies from its fully stocked shop, and lodging for out-of-state students.
