What is a Discovery Flight?
A Discovery Flight is similar to the first lesson of a Private Pilot License. It’s NOT just an airplane ride. The Discovery Flight is separated into three parts:
1. Preflight Briefing: Meet your instructor and the aircraft. Your instructor will explain exactly what you will be doing before, during and after the flight lesson.
2. The FUN part! Let’s Go Flying! From the pilot’s seat you will taxi the aircraft to the runway. Once preflight checks are complete, it’s time to takeoff and “slip the surly bonds.” In the air you will do most of the flying—learning how to turn, climb, descend, and adjust speed. You will be surprised how easy it truly is. You can fly over local landmarks or maybe even your house before coming back to the airport for landing.
3. Post-flight Debriefing: You will be guided to land and taxi the aircraft to begin the shut down process, along with a debriefing by your instructor. Your instructor will tell you how you performed, answer any questions you may have, and let you know how to get started as a student pilot!
