Discovery Flights: Intro Lessons

Discover the joy of flying for only $199

Our discovery flights are broken into two 30 minute lessons. First, fly in our full-motion simulator and learn the basics of flying an aircraft while being guided by one of our certified flight instructors. Second, fly from the pilot seat of one of our training aircraft while your instructor talks you through the basics of taxi, take-off, flight, and landing. If you like it….. then it’s your first lesson!

Other Flight Instruction Opportunities

Private Certificate

Flight training will enrich your life in countless ways.

You’ll learn to balance technical training with the freedom of flying toward an endless horizon. You’ll adopt new ways of speaking, navigating, and calculating your position. What initially feels like a complex process will slowly become second nature, and you will always have a great story to tell.

Instrument Rating

Instrument rating refers to the qualifications that a pilot must have in order to fly under instrument flight rules (IFR).

It requires additional training and instruction beyond what is required for a private pilot certificate, including rules and procedures specific to instrument flying, additional instruction in meteorology, and more intensive training in flight solely by reference to instruments. Testing consists of a written exam and a FAA check ride.

Commercial Certificate

Training for the certificate focuses on a better understanding of aircraft systems and a higher standard of airmanship.

 A commercial pilot can be paid for certain types of operation, such as banner towing, flight instruction and to be a co-pilot for our Career Pilot Program through Southern Airways Express. To fly for hire, the pilot must hold a second class medical certificate.  If you plan on making a career out of flying then a Commercial Certificate is a required training evolution.

Certified Flight & Instrument Instruction

A Certified Flight Instructor Certificate holder or (CFI) is someone who had mastered the art of airmanship.

A CFI can relate their skills to those in the process of learning to fly. As a CFI, you can teach on your own, as part of a flight school or be promoted to a Check Pilot in your current flying job. Many pilots choose to get their CFI in order to build flight time as instructors while they accrue flight time of their own to move on to flying as part of an airline or charter operation.  An Instrument Instructor or CFII, for short, is authorized to conduct training for the issuance of an instrument rating.

Multi-Engine Add-Ons

Managing the complexity and workload of a multi-engine aircraft is both exhilarating and rewarding. 

The multi-engine land rating is an “add-on” to an existing single-engine land private, commercial, or ATP certificate. For this rating, both VFR and IFR operations will be emphasized. There are no minimum time requirements for the multi-engine land rating; however you will need an instructor endorsement for flight and ground training prior to taking the checkride. There is no written exam, only an oral exam and practical checkride are required.  See our accelerated Multi-Engine Course.
