There’s no greater introduction to the world of aviation than to start with a Discovery Flight. Learn to fly around Tampa Bay with our Certified Flight Instructor (CFI).

You’ll be placed in the pilot’s seat during your first flying lesson and will gain hands-on flight training during take-off, turns and climbs, while manipulating the flight controls from day one. And YES… this discovery flight counts towards your required flight training time and will be entered into your log book as your first flight as PIC!

What can you expect from your discovery flight?

A Discovery Flight with Florida Sky can accomplish MANY things. The most important being your introduction to the exhilarating world of general aviation. Or, simply put, the introduction to flying an airplane!

What can you expect to experience during your Discovery Flight? More than you could ever imagine!

First, you’ll follow along as your Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) preflights the aircraft before take-off. Then, you’ll climb into the pilot’s seat of a Piper Archer II Aircraft and take the controls in your very hands as you depart the runway and lift off to new heights. You’ll be in control, but don’t worry… you’ll have a highly skilled co-pilot sitting right next to you explaining the basics every step of the way.

Explore the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg areas as you make gentle banking turns to the right and to the left. Climb and descend to different altitudes and experience a first-person point of view of a flawless landing as your co-pilot lands on the designated runway.

A Look Inside the Cockpit

For about 45 mins, you will get to know what it’s like to be a pilot as you climb over the ocean and shorelines and experience the stunning view of Saint Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa Bay Areas. This Discovery flight is the only way to really appreciate the freedom of the skies without being a certified pilot.
