Discovery Flight

What is a Discovery Flight?

This is a short 30-40 minute flight where you are first introduced to the front seat of an airplane. We always recommend that new students do a discovery flight before pursuing further training, to ensure comfort and readiness to learn. If you live in the Toledo/Wauseon area you may even be able to fly over your house.

We offer two different airplanes you can receive primary training in; our Cessna 150, and our Piper PA-28. The Cessna is a two-seat airplane and is smaller inside than the Piper. The PA-28 is a four-seat airplane which offers more performance and better stability than the Cessna. Both the Cessna and the Piper are exemplary training airplanes. It is up to you (the new student) to pick the airplane you would like to learn in. As a new student you will be pursuing your Private Pilot’s Certificate to fly single-engine land airplanes. 

The discovery flight rate is $125.00 for the Cessna and $150.00 for the Piper. We recommend the Piper for taller or bigger pilots. The Weight limit for the Cessna is 200 pounds.

When you are ready to schedule a discovery flight you can give us a call, or send an email. We only meet with students by appointment. Due to the TSA facilities at both airports, you will be unable to access our facilities unless escorted. If we do not answer the phone please leave a message, and we will call you back as soon as we are done flying. Please be prepared to provide information such as pilot weight, and when you would be available. We prefer to book discovery flights at least 1-2 weeks out. Weather can sometimes cause a discovery flight to need to be rescheduled.

We are open 7 days a week, year-round.
