$69 for Discovery Flight Package ($139.99 Value)

After a certified flight instructor demonstrates preflight and flying techniques, teacher and student climb aboard a light sport aircraft, which the instructor taxis down the runway and powers into the air. During the half-hour flight, pupils steer the plane through the sky before the pilot takes over again for the landing. At the subsequent debriefing, guests pen their first logbook entry, review their performance, and receive a DVD of the flight as well as a framed chunk of cloud caught during their trip.

First Landings Aviation

The certified flight instructors at First Landings Aviation were all actively airborne by their 20s: Adam Valencic earned his Private Pilot's License at 19, and Chris Buell and Kyle Pack began flying at ages 12 and 13, respectively. The pilots harness their years-long enthusiasm for each individually tailored student program they offer, be it a half-hour Discovery flight, sport-pilot training, or private-pilot training. The sport-pilot flight-instructor course, meanwhile, affords students opportunities to practice their instruction skills before teaching others how to beat flocks of migratory geese in drag races. With their licenses in tow, pilots can also take the skies in one of First Landing Aviation's rental aircrafts.

Customer Reviews

It was a great experience, but I did not get my souvenir piece of cloud.

I had a fantastic time, my instructor Joey was great. I will definitely be thinking of getting my pilot's license.

Very friendly and professional operation they have going on there. Joey Castillo was the instructor for myself, and my two grown young adult children. He was VERY professional and really knew what he was doing. He put us all at ease with his professionalism, and friendly disposition. Flying the nice little two seater "stick & rudder" aircraft was a lot of fun, but it was also very much a flying lesson as Joey did his best to educate us all during the short time we had in the seat. I would HIGHLY recommend this to just about anybody young or old. Flight in a small aircraft is pretty much the closest thing to being a bird we humans can experience, so go for it! Thanks to Joey and everybody there at FLA!
