At 92nd West Aviation, learning how to become a pilot is truly a "hands on" experience.


Your Discovery Flight is your opportunity to take the reins and experience the freedom of flight in a safe environment.

It is an excellent opportunity to "try it on" and see firsthand what it is like to fly an airplane.


Many are surprised to learn that they will actually be sitting in the pilot's seat their very first time out! The instructor will guide you from the copilot position. All training aircraft are equipped with dual controls and can be flown from either position. This way the instructor has the opportunity to allow the first time pilot to take the controls and truly fly the airplane on the first lesson.


How to Get Started


 • Just contact us to schedule your Discovery Flight.


 Your First Lesson!


Your first lesson will begin with a tour of our flight school. We'll introduce you to our team and show you our ground training facilities. Your instructor will then escort you to the aircraft and briefly go over the major components of the aircraft, the flight controls and the primary flight instruments.


Now the fun begins! With your instructor's assistance, you'll start the engine, taxi to the end of the runway, and perform the pre-takeoff ground checks on the aircraft. You'll be on the controls with your instructor during takeoff. Once you reach a safe altitude, your instructor will gradually turn the controls over to you and allow you to feel how the airplane responds to the flight controls. By the time you are ready to return to the airport, you will have some idea of how to control the airplane in straight and level flight, turns, climbs and descents. Many first time pilots are amazed at the built-in stability of the training aircraft. It really is a lot easier than most people would believe. Don't be surprised at the end of the lesson to realize you were in control of the aircraft for most of the lesson! But that is how we learn to fly; we learn it by doing it.


Purchase a Discovery Flight for yourself or as a gift for a friend or family member. A flying lesson is an affordable, one-of-a-kind gift your loved one will never forget!
