Have you ever dreamed of taking hands-on controls of an airplane? Now you can! *Plus receive a complimentary starter logbook!
Experience the excitement of flying an airplane during an introductory hands-on flight lesson at Firelands Aero Club. A discovery flight includes 15 minutes of pre and post flight instruction and 30 minutes flying with our Club approved FAA Certificated Flight Instructor (CFI). Your instructor will first guide you through a preflight inspection, where you’ll learn about the airplane’s parts and flight controls. Then it’s time to fly!
Once you’re in the air, you’ll fly basic maneuvers such as straight-and-level flight, climbs, descents, and turns — all from the pilot’s seat. You’ll get to see local landmarks from the air as you fly around. You’ll be able to record the lesson in a pilot logbook (provided complimentary). The discovery flight will give you a taste of what it’s like to fly and be a pilot. Your instructor will be able to answer your questions about flight training and you'll also have the opportunity to join our Club and sign up for further lessons.
Discovery flights are available year-round by appointment only. To schedule a discovery flight over the phone, please give us a call at 419-515-2020.
