$109 for Introductory Flight Lesson ($200 Value)

Instructors cover topics such as taxi operations, radio communications, climbs and descents, and shallow and medium bank turns. Lessons include headset rental and can include training toward flight-training certifications. Flight time is about .7 hours, as measured on the Hobbs meter in the aircraft.

Flight 101

Flight 101 has been leading aspiring pilots into the skies for more than four decades. Students begin their avian education seated in a Cessna or Diamond Star aircraft, where they learn liftoff and landing procedures from FAA-certified instructors. All training sessions are held one on one and allow students to feed a fleeting itch for flight or work toward a private pilot license's 40 hours of flight time. Flight 101 operates out of a towered airport—enhancing radio communications and ground operations—and keeps an FAA examiner onsite to ensure clouds don’t form themselves into four-letter words.

Great experience! Bought the flight plus ride along for my boyfriend as a gift. The instructor, JP, was super friendly and fun, my boyfriend really enjoyed flying the plane and I just had fun flying around Detroit and taking photos. Definitely worth it!
