$99 for a 60-Minute Introductory Flight Lesson ($198 Value)
Students scramble into a Cessna C-172SP aircraft and take their seat in the cockpit alongside an experienced, professional instructor. After a preflight engine check and taxiing, which together amount to about five minutes, students spend the rest of their hour flying the aircraft. The instructor keeps watch for safety and eagle speed traps. Flight lessons are offered daily from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for flight instruction, Burlington Aviation helps aspiring aviators to take to the skies. The outfit rigorously cares for a fleet of six aircraft. Students can rent aircraft for logging aerial hours under the watchful eye of an experienced, professional flight instructor. Burlington Airport does not have a control tower, meaning students spend less time waiting on tower clearance to take off and land and more time trying to fly higher than a pet griffin.
