Discovery Flight

Third Coast Aviation LLC (TCA) offers Discovery Flights in order to allow new students to realize their potential as pilots and start an exciting journey with us.  Discover the beauty of Galveston Island from 3,000 feet flying out of Texas Gulf Coast Regional Airport (LBX) in Angleton, Texas.  Participants learn the basics and freedom of flying in a single piston engine fixed wing aircraft, experiencing all aspects of flying including take-off, climbing to the desired altitude, navigation to Galveston Island, and then returning.  Total duration is 1 hour  with up to 30 minutes of ground school.  After completing the flight and properly stowing the aircraft, our Discovery Flights conclude with an after action review and recording of this first flight in a flight log.

Participants will be at the controls, but don’t worry, there will be a professional pilot who also has control of the aircraft.  Share the experience with another person who can capture all the excitement and thrills of flying (TCA allows you to bring a friend for no extra charge, but only one).

  • 1 hour total
  • 1/2 hour ground school with an FAA certified pilot
