$129 for a Two-Hour Introductory Airplane-Flight Experience ($270 Value)

  • 30 minutes of preflight ground instruction
  • Up to one hour of flight time in a Cessna 172 plane

First, a certified flight instructor teaches you basic flight maneuvers and specialty operations, such as instrument training, emergency procedures, and waving at passing clouds. Then, while you're at the controls of a Cessna 172 airplane, the instructor coaches you through the ins and outs of riding the skyway. Each customer receives a keepsake photo of the adventure.

Tampa Bay Aviation

White sand beaches spread out into the distance, running into the cerulean-blue sea, where seaweed and fish can be seen drifting below the surface. Tree-studded islands and winding sandbars pass underneath, and a white suspension bridge stretches across the horizon like a length of thread. Tampa Bay Aviation's visitors take in these elevated, panoramic views of the Florida coastline from the passenger’s seat or behind the controls of an airplane or helicopter.

Its team of certified flight instructors and experienced commercial pilots operates a fleet of Cessna 172 and Piper Cherokee planes, Robinson R22 helicopters, and an FAA-approved helicopter simulator. During flight experiences and pilot-training programs, they let clients take the aircraft's controls without having to first duel the ghosts of the Wright brothers. They also take clients skyward for aerial surveys and photography sessions.
