- $99 for a one-hour Introductory Flight Lesson in a Piper Cherokee 140 ($200 value)

- $299 for an All-inclusive six-week Flight-training Bundle for one ($599 value)
Lessons include 30 minutes of flight time and 30 minutes of ground training.
During discovery flights, certified instructors begin with ground lessons, teaching students the basics behind various flight controls and instrumentation. Then students and instructors climb aboard the aircrafts and whiz through the skies. The student does most of the supervised flying, including the takeoff and landing.
The Ultimate WWII flying adventure puts patrons in the shoes of a WWII pilot, cruising the skies in an iconic Boeing Stearman PT-17. Guests will first learn about the plane's history and legendary tales of glory, and then take to the air for 25 minutes in the pilot's seat, donning a helmet, goggles, and white flying scarf.
The six-week training bundle takes flyers through a full Aviation 101 ground-school course.
Flights operated under a LOA on file with the FAA under Edward Duckworth
