I got this for my boyfriend and he LOVED IT!! They are very informative so they make you feel comfortable. My boyfriend is afraid of heights but he said he would do it again. That right there says a lot.

The "Discovery Flight" was a gift, and really just a novelty. We don't plan on following-through with flying lessons, but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Oscar, our instructor, was professional, friendly, and thorough during the 30 minutes of "ground school." The opportunity to take the controls during the 30-minute flight was a thrilling experience and Oscar's instructions were clear and enlightening. All-in-all, the Discovery Flight was an enjoyable learning experience. We highly recommend Oscar and Washington International Flight Academy.

Such a great experience. The instructor must have nerves of steel to go up with a novice, but she was def. reassuring. Learned a lot about prepping the plane for take off and the mechanics of take off/ landing.

Staci is a great instructor. I very much enjoyed the flight, only wish I had more initiative on takeoff and landing but I can understand her cautious attitude

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.
