Third Coast Aviation LLC (“TCA“) provides Discovery Flights as part of its business as a Title 14 CFR Part 61 flight school. Discovery Flights are meant to allow individuals interested in joining our flight school determine if general aviation flight training is for them – go up in one of our aircraft on our flight line, and take the controls with a Certified Flight Instructor (“CFI“). It can only be taken once per student per flight school.
What a Discovery Flight is not:
- A bucket list item
- A flight lesson
- A joy ride
Therefore, you might get the following if you purchased a Discovery Flight from our Groupon offering or if you purchased it directly with us:
- Have you taken a Discovery Flight before? If you have, we are unable to provide you another Discovery flight. However, we can sign them as a student and give the credit toward a flight lesson.
- Is this Discovery flight for pleasure or to learn how to fly. If for pleasure, we can not provide a Discovery flight. They will need to request a refund from Groupon.
Besides staying legal and above board, these two important questions, allows us to deal only with the serious minded students. The regulations that we run our business:
- Record keeping – Title 49 → Subtitle B → Chapter XII → Subchapter C → Part 1552
- TSA’s rule – AOPA website
