$112 for a 30-Minute Discovery Flight ($225 Value)

Discovery Flight sessions typically include 15–20 minutes of flight time, leaving space for water taxiing and briefing. During the Discovery Flight, customers will join a pilot on board an amphibious weight-shift control trike. The pair will soar high above the water, with particpants receiving the chance to steer the vessel and experience what it’s like to be a pilot.

As a kid, Jeff Bell went for a ride in his neighbor's ultralight aircraft. From that moment, Jeff was hooked. Years later, Jeff moved from North Carolina to Florida so he could fly his own ultralights above the Emerald Coast. He earned his pilot's license, and has since logged more than 3,000 hours of flight time.

Today, Jeff shares the rush of flight with others aboard an FAA-certified, amphibious, weight-shift-controlled trike–or, in other words, a water aircraft. Often referred to simply as a "trike," the vessel has a 912 Rotax engine and features aluminum pontoons with wheels for taxing from beach to water and a super hang glider wing. But, instead of depending on the wind or a Medieval trebuchet to get moving, Jeff's trike comes equipped with a power unit that propels it to up to 45 miles-per-hour. It can also reach heights of up to 14,000 feet, though Jeff usually keeps it under 2,000 feet for discovery flights.

My husband flew for his birthday and he has an amazing experience!

Even full price this is an experience of a life time
Naureen S. · July 2, 2016
The flight was wonderful. The pilot was very competent and the flight was very safe. The pilot took time to point out interesting sites - and there are a lot of interesting sites along the inter-coastal and gulf of Mexico.
