Book Your First Lesson Right Now Online
Whether you are ready to take your first step as a pilot, or give the experience to someone else as a gift, you can purchase your first lesson right here. If you prefer to call us, or drop by in person, that's OK too.
You will take the left (pilot) seat, your instructor will be in the right (co-pilot) seat.
Up to 2 family members or friends may accompany you on your trial flight, however please don't overlook the obvious - if you want to do this you will need to book a 4-seat aircraft and they will sit in the rear seats behind you - just like in a car.
