Student Discovery Flight

A Discovery Flight is the first step into the exciting world of aviation. Whether you’re just curious about what it’s like to fly a small airplane, or have the goal of a lifelong aviation career…a discovery flight at AlphaFlight will introduce you to all the thrills aviation has to offer. Check out the view of your house or downtown from above and gain a new perspective of the lay of the land. Before the flight, you’ll be briefed on what to expect and how to preflight an airplane. After takeoff and reaching a safe altitude, if you’re up for it, your Certified Flight Instructor will demonstrate the basics and allow you to manipulate the controls while coaching you—you’re flying!

Flights approximately 60 min (20 min in the pilots seat) and are conducted in our four-seat Cessna 172 aircraft.  The cost is $100.
