The Discovery Flight .. the adventure begins!

Learning to fly an airplane is truly a "hands on" experience.

Your "Discovery Flight" is your opportunity to experience the freedom of flight in a safe, controlled environment in a new Light Sport Aircraft. It is an excellent opportunity to "try it on" and see firsthand what it is like to fly an airplane. Many are surprised to learn that they will occupy the pilot's seat while the instructor guides the lesson from the copilot's position. All training aircraft are equipped with dual controls and can be flown from either position. This way the instructor has the opportunity to allow the first time pilot to take the controls and truly fly the airplane on the first lesson.

So how do we get started?

The first step is to call or email SkyVenture Aviation, Inc to schedule your Discovery Flight. It is best to let us know a day or two ahead of time so we can schedule both your aircraft and your instructor at a time convenient to you.

Your first lesson

Your first lesson will begin with a tour of our Flight School. We'll introduce you to our staff and show you our ground training facilities. Your instructor will then escort you to the aircraft and briefly go over the major components of the aircraft, the flight controls and the primary flight instruments. Now the fun begins! With your instructor's assistance, you'll start the engine, taxi to the end of the runway, and perform the pre-takeoff ground checks on the aircraft. You'll be on the controls with your instructor during takeoff. Once you reach a safe altitude, your instructor will gradually turn the controls over to you and allow you to feel how the airplane responds to the flight controls. By the time you are ready to return to the airport, you will have some idea of how to control the airplane in straight and level flight, turns, climbs and descents. Many first time pilots are amazed at the built-in stability of the training aircraft. It really is a lot easier than most people would believe. Don't be surprised at the end of the lesson to realize you were in control of the aircraft for most of the lesson! But that is how we learn to fly; we learn it by doing it.

After your first lesson

After the flight lesson, your instructor will assist you in mapping out a personalized training program to fit your needs. We will make every effort to answer your questions and show you how we can make your dream of becoming a pilot a reality. These steps often involve a discussion of how the flight training course is structured, the required training materials, and the costs involved. If you are ready to begin your training, we will complete the enrollment process and schedule your next flight lesson. It's that easy! The entire process from the time you arrive for your Discovery Flight takes about two hours. Subsequent flight lessons will be scheduled in two hour blocks.

So call us right now and arrange your Discovery Flight today! Prices start at only $89.00.
