$159 for 90-Minute Discovery Flight Experience ($340 Value)
In a cozy plane with leather finishes, students will test out the pilot’s seat under the supervision of an FAA-certified instructor. The approximately 60 minutes of in-air experience—after 30 minutes on the ground—grants scenic views of downtown Minneapolis and Lake Minnetonka, plus surrounding neighborhoods. Students will also receive a free 6-month subscription to AOPA Flight Training Magazine. Students are welcome to bring a friend for a $20 additional fee.
The flight time can be applied toward flight-training time for those interested in earning a pilot’s license.
Inflight Pilot Training
The certified flight instructors at Inflight Pilot Training, many of whom are airline or corporate pilots, boast a collective total of nearly 20,000 in-flight hours. During lessons within one of the facility’s well-maintained aircraft, they’ll impart years of know-how as they teach each student how to properly fly an airplane. The training center not only offers scenic tours and flight training, both of which are specialties, but also airplane rental and ground schools.
