After 30 minutes of ground instruction from an expert pilot, hands-on discovery flights buzz around Austin for 30 minutes. The 2.5-hour introductory flight lesson includes about 60 minutes in the air after about 90 minutes of ground training, which covers fundamental aerodynamics and basic techniques of flight. Flights take place in a Cessna 172. One person can ride in the back seat; age limit of at least 10 years old.

Above & Beyond Aviation

Though he couldn’t afford to get his pilot’s license after his first flight in 1967, Above & Beyond Aviation founder George Farris was hooked. He continued to pursue his dream of flying, eventually taking private pilot classes at the University of Texas. Now the expert who teaches the courses, Farris believes in making the rewarding and exciting experience of flight accessible to everyone. At Above & Beyond Aviation, he introduces students to flying and helps them work toward their own certifications. In addition to introductory flights and advanced training programs, Above & Beyond Aviation also offers aircraft rental for certified pilots who are tired of trying to flag down sky taxis.

Customer Reviews

Flying early in the day is best if you want a little less turbulence.

Great experience for my son and it was fun to fly at ABIA with all of the big planes on the runway. Very good instructor. Scheduling was tough due to bad weather in Austin the past month.
