$65 for a Discovery Flight Lesson ($140 Value)
Aspiring pilots arrive at New Market Airport and greet their friendly, FAA–certified instructor for the introductory-piloting lesson. The student first receives a lesson on the ground that includes a preflight inspection of the light sport aircraft. Both instructor and pupil then load into the plane and take to the skies for 30 minutes, during which the student may take the controls while the instructor safely oversees.
Shenandoah Flying Adventures
Licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration, Shenandoah Flying Adventures leads students skyward through training options that range from introductory flights to full pilot-certification programs. The squadron's 60-minute Discovery flight gives aeronautical novices a feel for all that flying entails, beginning with a lesson and preflight aircraft inspection and culminating with the student's taking control of the plane as a certified instructor looks on. The program offers a way for curious cloud-gazers to give flying a try without committing to all the resources necessary to earning a pilot's license, such as changing your first name to Captain. Should students wish to pursue aerial studies further, the time spent aloft can contribute to a full certification, which Shenandoah Flying Adventures offers among its slate of courses.:m]]
