Centennial Flyers wants to put you at the controls of an airplane! You will be accompanied by an Independent FAA Certified Flight Instructor who will keep you safe and guide you through a flight while you do all of the flying in one of our Cessna 172s! The instructor will perform as much of the flight as is necessary for safety, but will teach you how to takeoff and you will do almost all of the flying yourself!
A Discovery Flight is designed to allow you to discover the joy of flight. If you have never been up in a single engine airplane before, or if you are just thinking about learning to fly, but are not quite sure, this is a great way to start. Your pilot will be one of Centennial Flyers Independent FAA Certified Flight Instructors. He or she will show you how to pre-flight the airplane. Then you'll climb aboard and start the engine. Once completing the checklist you'll radio the tower for a taxi clearance and head for the active runway. In just a few minutes you will find yourself floating gently off the ground and into the exciting world of flying for 1 (one) hour. Your entire experience is a low, flat rate of $179.00! Everything is included — there are no hidden costs or fees.
Please give us as much advance notice as possible so that we may plan your flight for the best use of your time if you are planning on bringing someone to take pictures of you flying your first airplane. (There is no extra charge for one extra passenger!)
Don’t forget your checklist:
- a Photo ID for each person (TSA rules),
- your camera, plenty of memory space
*Price is for a C-172 ... all other aircraft are hourly rate plus
