The first thing you do is you'll get a preflight briefing where you learn about everything the plane does and how it works. There will be a lot to go over so make sure you pay attention so that you can figure things out when you're up in the cockpit in the air. After that, you will go on board the plane and learn about the controls. You will see what they do as well as see the layout. After all of that then is time for you to take to the skies with an FAA-certified pilot who is show you all the ropes. There will be no stone unturned in teaching you how to do it.
You don't need to have the experience to learn this new skill because you will have someone right there with you making sure you get it right. You'll have an FAA certified pilot and they will take you through the turns the times and the glides that are needed. After you've flown you will then fly back to the airport and land.
Have you ever wondered what all those buttons, dials and switches in a cockpit are for? Or what actually makes an aircraft fly? How many times have you seen airplanes soaring in the sky and wished you could play in the clouds, too? For all those who have ever dreamed of flying, or wanted to give someone else the opportunity, you've landed at the right spot.
After a pre-flight briefing during which you'll discuss the basics of what makes an airplane fly, you'll climb aboard one of the Varga VG-21s (the same aircraft used for our Top Dog Air Combat flights) for a brief cockpit orientation, and then take to the skies. No previous experience is necessary, but you probably will be able to do the first take off yourself under the watchful eye of an experienced FAA certified pilot, of course. Then learn how to maneuver the aircraft through turns, climbs, and glides, and fly the aircraft back to the airport. It's a great way to start someone's career or even change their life.
So if you're ready to share the skies with the likes of the Wright brothers, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart and Neil Armstrong, order the Discovery Flight and let's go fly!
