- $119 for a 30-minute flight lesson on a Sea & Sky Cygnet amphibious aircraft ($230 value)
During the Discovery flight, which lasts about 30 minutes, customers get a lesson before taking over the controls themselves, getting bird’s-eye views of the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Sound.
The Sea & Sky Krucker Cygnet, the aircraft of choice at Duckwing Triking, may resemble a hang-glider with a motor, but a flight in it is more than just gliding about in the breeze. Called a "trike" because of its three wheels, it's an amphibious vehicle, meaning it can take off from land or water and it hatches from aquatic larva instead of being made in a factory. The pilots at Duckwing love teaching others about this unusual craft, which is why every flight is a lesson instead of just a ride-along. Passengers get a chance to take the controls and soar above the Gulf of Mexico, and St. Joseph Sound.
