The Deal

  • $69 for a one-hour Discovery flight experience (a $126.67 value)

A pilot provides a basic introduction to the aircraft—a Cessna 150 with the latest avionics suite—and the fundamental concepts of flying for about 20 minutes. Clients then get to explore the freedom of the skies for about 40 minutes.

Solo Flight Training

Why take a walk when you can take a flight instead? From their hanger at Ellington Field Airport, the certified instructors of Solo Flight Training dedicate themselves to answering that question through their personal flight training lessons. Students learn about flight fundamentals while on the ground before heading to the classroom of the clouds within the cockpit of the school's Cessna 150. Instructors keep a close watch during the supervised flights, standing ready to offer encouragement or tweak techniques as needed. They also run discovery flights that introduce the thrill of private aviation to aspiring pilots and sightseers alike.

Solo Flight Training

Solo Flight Training's director of operations, Kevin Gabriel, is an experienced pilot, and even he would agree that not everything about contemporary flight training is perfect. Enter the Redbird FMX flight simulator, an FAA-approved advanced aviation-training device with lifelike motions, controls, and graphics. Inside the simulator, students and Solo Flight Training's certified instructors can freeze situations in real time, giving them the opportunity to analyze problems as they occur. These issues could range from being in a skewed holding pattern to the plane joining a flock of migrating birds. This advanced simulator training can also be a more cost-effective alternative to traditional flight schools on account of rising fuel costs and other expensive expenses. Though students will have to helm a plane eventually, simulators help them get certified with various lessons, including instrument rating, proficiency, and practical tests.
