Choose Between Two Options

  • $65 for a discovery-flight package for one (a $112 value)
  • $119 for a discovery-flight package for two (a $224 value)

The discovery-flight package commences with 15 minutes of preflight instruction provided by a certified flight instructor. Student and teacher then board a Cessna 172 aircraft for 30–40 minutes of flight time before landing safely back on the runway. Students review their time spent aloft in a 15-minute postflight debriefing, where they also receive a logbook and sectional chart of Los Angeles. Before parting ways, students pose for a flight picture to commemorate their time in the skies.

Grey Eagle Aviation

Commanded by a retired Navy fighter pilot and commercial captain with more than 25,000 hours of flying experience, Grey Eagle Aviation's team of certified flight instructors guides students skyward via flights that range from first-time cruises to professional training missions. Students receive their instruction at [McClellan/Palomar Airport])(, a tower-controlled airfield that makes a great training environment due to its facilities, sunny weather, and ban on toy planes. Before placing them behind the steering column of a Cessna 152 or 172, instructors teach burgeoning pilots through ground studies in computerized classrooms with modern aids and training materials.
