introductory flight

 

Our flight training is carried out in Tecnam aircraft. Safety is their first priority. With years of experience, reliability, affordable price, and low operating costs. Tecnam is an excellent choice for flight training.

During each introductory flight, you will be on the controls for a major part of the time. In addition, before the flight, you will spend time with your instructor to understand the operation and effect of the controls, and after the flight, will have the opportunity to sit with the instructor and review the flight, covering any questions you might have. Also, the flight time will count towards your pilot certificate if you subsequently decide to go ahead with a course.

To schedule an Introductory Flight – for:
Waco, TX call (254) 300-5686
Scottsdale, AZ call (480) 951-6283
