Instructors review the lesson route and orient students with their checklist and aircraft controls during a one-hour on-ground session at Republic Airport. In between takeoff and landing, subsequent one-hour flights with instructors imbue pupils with fundamentals such as climbing, descending, and executing left and right turns. In the two-person option, one student flies for one hour to a distant airport, at which the group stops for refreshment. The second student then pilots the plane back to home base, ending the three-hour experience.
