$100 for an Introductory Flight Lesson ($200 Value)
Lasting approximately an hour, each introductory flight lesson places students inside the cockpit of a Cessna 172 or Piper aircraft so they can take the controls themselves under the supervision of a certified instructor. Each student receives a brief overview of flight techniques and safety procedures on the ground before slipping the surly bonds of the Raleigh-Durham Airport and performing simple airborne maneuvers, including a gradual turn and communicating with air-traffic control. The time spent aloft may be credited toward pilot’s license requirements, and a second passenger may tag along in the plane for an additional $10.
