$99 for a Three-Hour Discovery Flying Lesson and One-Hour Flight ($249 Value)

During discovery flight school, pupils first complete three hours of ground instruction on Friday night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., during which mentors dispense nuggets of piloting know-how such as navigation tips, cockpit controls and flight instruments, and laws of aerodynamics. Graduates then climb into the cockpit of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk on Saturday morning, pushing off from terra firma for a one-hour jaunt at around 3,500 feet. Teachers bequeath the throttle to piloting protégés for 30 minutes of airtime, and patrons are encouraged to bring cameras for snapshots of steering poses and eagles making duck faces. Participants must be 12 years old or older to fly; see the FAQs for additional information.

Future Eagles Aviation

The FAA-certified instructors at Future Eagles Aviation put clients behind the controls of actual aircraft as they teach them the ins and outs of aviation. Students amass skills such as navigation and cockpit familiarity on the ground in adventure flight school before lifting off in a Cessna 172 training aircraft for 30 minutes of flight time. Kids can also take to the sky during Future Eagles Aviation’s youth aviation summer camp, a weeklong foray into the world of cloud skimming and Peter Pan mimicry during which kids aged 10 and older practice on simulators and log real flight hours in training aircraft.
