$149 for a Discovery-Flight Package ($391.50 Value)

Students schedule a time and date to meet with the FAA-certified instructor for three hours of on-the-ground training. On the same day or another scheduled time, teacher and pupil load into a Cessna aircraft for a discovery flight, which consists of two 20-minute flights. The first flight soars above historic Salisbury with High Rock Lake visible in the distance, during which time one of two students takes control and maneuvers the plane. After the pilot lands at Davidson County Airport, another student assumes control and flies back to Rowan County Airport.

Alpha-One Air Service

From their home base at Rowan County Airport, the FAA-certified flight instructors that represent Alpha-One Air Service impart winged wisdom to their students, whether the goal includes a casual discovery flight or full pilot certification. Before taking off on their own to play chicken with a gaggle of geese, students take part in ground instruction, where they learn about instruments, regulations, and pilot lingo in a safe environment. Novices hoping for a glimpse of flight training before diving into a full certification regimen can sign up for the Discovery flight program, which allows students to take the controls of a light aircraft while an instructor watches closely. On-ground training and in-flight piloting sessions can be scheduled for different days.
