I bought this for my son's 20th birthday gift. It was a great and eye opening experience for him. He is now interested in learning to be a pilot. His flight instructor was very knowledgeable and he felt safe during the whole flying time.

I was on the fence about learning to fly and actually a little scared, but the instructor Mr. Erik Lee, was an AMAZING instructor. I highly recommend to anyone who is even remotely interested in flying, to try the discover flight. I was extremely satisfied and am already making plans to continue my flight training. Thank you to Mr. Lee.

About Washington International Flight Academy

For more than 20 years, the FAA-certified flight instructors at Washington International Flight Academy have safely guided pupils skyward and imbued them with the skills necessary for numerous licenses and certifications. Under an instructor's watchful eye, guests control a Cessna 172 on a 30-minute airborne trek during discovery flights, which can later be applied toward courses for a private or commercial pilot’s license with optional multiengine rating. A commercial pilot’s license qualifies more seasoned flyers for instructor certification, where they learn how to teach essentials, including how to tell the difference between a landing airplane and a diving roc.

Along with in-depth courses, Washington International Flight Academy accommodates patrons with rentals of its massive fleet, charts and piloting supplies from its fully stocked shop, and lodging for out-of-state students.
