A discovery flight is also known as an introductory flight. The discovery flight is intended for a person who has never flown a plane before who is curious about obtaining their private pilot license.
During the discovery flight, the perspective student pilot has actual hands-on experience maneuvering the aircraft both on the ground and in the sky along side of their instructor (CFI). The total length of the discovery flight is up to one hour long.
Fly along the scenic barrier islands of Charleston while a friend watches you fly from the backseat. If you wish to bring along one extra passenger on your Discovery Flight, select the "add on" for one Extra Passenger upon purchase.
