More detailed description >

Have you always wondered what it would be like to sit in the pilot's seat of an airplane, take the controls, and soar into the horizon? This Learn to Fly experience is for you!

Your flight lesson begins with ground school, where you will learn the basics and prepare for your flight. Your instructor will take you through the preflight inspection and prepare the Cirrus SR20 for takeoff.

After ground school and preflight inspection, it's time for takeoff!

Your FAA certified flight instructor will guide you every step of the way as you take to the sky. You will do the majority of the flying once airborne.
