The Discovery Flight

The FIRST STEP is to take a Discovery Flight to discover the beauty of Galveston Island or Houston from 3,000 feet in the air.  This one and a half hour lesson includes up to an hour in our aircraft with one of our professional pilots.


Flight Lessons

After your Discovery Flight and registration (more details), you are ready to take to the air with flight lessons during dual flight instruction with one of our Certified Flight Instructors (‘CFI’) and an aircraft in our fleet.  Our fleet includes a Piper Archer II plan, a Piper Cherokee, and a Grumman AA-1A. In addition to our aircraft, we provide our students with access to an Advanced Aircraft Training Device (‘AATD’).
