Frequent Asked Questions

Have a question? We've got you covered.

What is an Intro Flight?

It is a short flight to see if you like the flying experience. An instructor takes you up and lets you fly the plane. He / She explains what to do and what will happen. It is meant to be a fun experience. To schedule an Intro flight, simply call to book your date and time. If you want to take someone else with you that is possible depending upon the weight limitations of the plane. Just tell us what you want to do, and we can help you figure out the best option.
