Discovery flight - Experience the excitement of flying an airplane while enjoying the views of metro Detroit.  See downtown Detroit, Lake St. Clair, Stony Creek, Southfield, or Belle Isle while flying the airplane assisted by a flight instructor.  This could be your first flight lesson!  The flight starts with a preflight brief that includes weather, flight plan, safety and aircraft information.   You will then go to the airplane and prepare it for flight, after standard aircraft system checks, it's time to take to the air.  You will be in the pilot's seat performing pilot tasks while flying the airplane over the Metro Detroit area.  After about nearly  an hour of flying, you will return to the airport and assist in the landing.  When the discovery flight is over, you can discuss options for future flight training.  This introductory flight lesson will be about two hours from start to finish and costs only $199.
