$89 for a Discovery Flight Lesson with Logbook ($170 Value)
Students pilot a two-seat training aircraft under the tutelage of an FAA-certified instructor during the 90-minute discovery flight. The lesson comprises 50 minutes of ground instruction as well as 40 minutes in the air. Once back on the ground, students receive a logbook in which they can count the experience toward a full pilot's license if they wish to pursue one.
Dream Flight School
From their home base at Carroll County Airport, Dream Flight School's FAA-certified flight instructors take aspiring pilots above northern Maryland for instruction and training. The flight school’s creator, Jeremy Etzkorn, has more than 2,000 hours of flight time inside the cockpit of the school's Cessna 172s and Liberty XL2 aircraft. Instructional classes include one-on-one discovery flights, where potential pilots can get a taste of aviation, from the preflight checklist to the postflight interview with the landing gear. The school also offers full pilot's certification, as students work with a flight instructor with at least 350 hours of flight time.
