$65 to Fly an Airplane During a 30-Minute Discovery Flight ($129 Value)
Upon arriving at WNC Aviation's office in the Lacey Griffin Aviation Center at the Asheville Regional Airport, students receive training materials and a briefing from the flight instructor. Next, the instructor leads a preflight inspection on a Cessna Skyhawk SP. After the instructor performs the takeoff and climbs to 5,000 feet, students take the controls to execute gentle turns and maneuvers. Prospective pilots may also taxi the aircraft once instructors perform the landing.
The full-time professional flight instructors of WNC Aviation help aspiring aeronauts unfurl their wings and also refresh professional pilots on essential flying skills with a personal and career-training curriculum. Crews let experienced aviators take to the skies in an aircraft from the fully insured fleet, or teach beginners flight basics within a private or small-group setting. A full-motion simulator allows captains to perfect their “fasten your seatbelt” speeches, and an FAA-certified training program runs through the entire certification process under real-world conditions at the school’s controlled, uncongested airport.
