At Hortman Aviation, tender-winged aeronauts can take to the skies during introductory lessons or work toward licenses with introductory flight packages. Spanning approximately 90 minutes, private lessons begin with a 30-minute briefing and facility tour and 30 minutes of computer-based ground instruction. Under the savvy supervision of FAA-certified flight instructors, students then spend 30 minutes learning to man the controls of a Grumman Trainer, Piper Cherokee, Cessna 172, or Super Nintendo. Package lessons also include a 60-page manual providing extensive learning material, tips, and know-how for getting the most out of the 90-minute airborne experience. All aloft time will be thoroughly documented inside each student's shiny new logbook, allowing evidence of the aerial adventure to be touted to cloud soirees and bragged about to birds.
