Q:

I would like to purchase the introductory flight lesson for my father....during this flight, will he actually get to fly the plane himself or will he just be in the passenger seat the whole time??

Q:

Hi! I would like to buy the discovery flight for 2 for my father in law to go on a flight with my two children, ages 11 & 8. If the plane size can accommodate, is there an option to add a third passenger for an additional fee? If so, I think it would be his favorite Christmas present ever!

A:

Have to be at least 10. We can do 8 but you would be responsible for the cost to clean the airplane if your child gets sick.

Q:

What is the major difference between the two packages you offer? Longer ground training and longer flight hours, or is there some kind of certification (or something similar) provided from the more expensive one?

Jack C.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

A:

The discovery flight is a shor flight to see what flying in the Austin area is all about. The first lesson is twice as long both in the ground and air. Both flights count towards the 40 hours to get your license.

Q:

$55 for a discovery flight for two (up to a $130 value) After 30 minutes of ground instruction from an expert pilot, hands-on discovery flights buzz around Austin for 30 minutes. So does that mean two people will get to go on the flight with an expert pilot? And both will get a chance at the controls?

Tarun S.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

A:

No. Only one pilot and one passenger and of course the instructor.

Q:

do you have to be a certain age for any of the lessons

vashann d.  asked on  Dec 5, 2012

A:

We prefer that the pilot is at least 13 although if you think that your son/ daughter is mature enough then that's Ok

George F.  from  Merchant  replied on  Dec 6, 2012

Q:

I have a 12 yr old son.........is there an age limit? If I buy the intro lesson for him, can I go along for the ride?

charlotte  asked on  Dec 5, 2012

A:

We prefer that the pilot is at least13 but if you think he is mature enough that is fine. And you can ride along too.

Q:

How old does someone have to be to do the intro lesson. Can my 14 year old son do it?

Dawn O.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

Q:

My husband was a pilot in the Marines Corp and Coast Guard and still has his flying books. He hasn't flown in 15 years and misses it soooo much! How much is lessons (or if he even needs lessons) after this introductory offer? I'm hoping this will just get him there and back into it after the introductory lesson. Thanks! Egina

Egina S.  asked on  Dec 5, 2012

A:

This is an intro lesson that he could apply to his review.
