A "Discovery Flight" is designed
to allow you to "discover" the joy and functionality
If you've never been up in a single engine airplane
before or if you're just thinking about learning to fly and not
quite sure, this is a great way to start.
Your pilot will be one of Aspen's Certified Flight
Instructors. He or she will show you how to "pre-flight"
the airplane. Then, you'll climb aboard, fire it up, radio the
tower for a taxi clearance and head for the active runway. Pretty
quickly you will find yourself floating gently off the ground
and into the exciting world of flying!
Discovery Flight FAQ
Q: Do I need a passport or birth certificate to take a discovery flight?
A: No. While this is a flight lesson, the TSA does not require that we verify your citizenship for the first flight.
Q: What should I wear/bring?
A: Dress is casual. Our airplanes are heated, but not air conditioned. And you'll spend up to 20 minutes outdoors prior to your flight. So just dress to be comfortable. As for what to bring... a camera and some form of payment are about all you'll need.
Q: How much should I tip my instructor?
A: While tipping is certainly not required, if you appreciate the job your instructor did you may choose to show your appreciation with a tip. $20 is about average.
