How Do I Sign Up for an Introductory Flight Lesson?
An introductory flight lesson, sometimes called an "intro ride" or "discovery flight," allows someone with little or no experience to fly an airplane with a flight instructor.
A typical introductory flight lesson begins with ground instruction on the basics of aircraft control and includes a short flight (15 to 60 minutes). The student receives hands-on flight experience that can be logged as a real flight lesson.
The introductory flight lesson can help a potential flight student decide whether to pursue training. Since there is normally no obligation to continue training, introductory flight lessons are also great for someone looking for a fun, exciting, one-time experience. Many schools offer gift certificates.
Introductory flight lessons are available to the public at most flight schools and through many independent flight instructors. They are sometimes available on a walk-in basis, but normally you should contact a flight school or flight instructor to make an appointment.
