Discovery Flights are an excellent chance for new flyers in Maine to experience flying a plane for the first time!
Flight Schools Maine provides first time flyers, like yourself, with an opportunity to fly an aircraft at minimal expense to you. Discovery flights provide an excellent occasion for you to make a decision as to if you want to devote the time and energy required to be a licensed pilot. Discovery flights or Introductory flights can supply you with the perfect chance to not only learn more about the management and operation of the airplane, but to literally maneuver it on your very own as well. One of our certified flying instructors will go along with you throughout, in order to help with any issues, provide you with a demonstration of the machinery of the airplane, and teach you a trick or two. Most of the discovery flights are conducted in very light airplanes that are single engine powered, like the Cessna 172 or Piper. These airplanes have a maximum cruise rate of 150 knots and are perfect for training purposes. Your discovery flight is expected to take approximately an hour from beginning to end. The flight will wrap up with your opportunity to fly the aircraft on your own when you reach an appropriate training elevation. Some of our facilities permit an extra person to ride along during your flight, feel free to inquire with our friendly team members as to which locations allow for it.
Prior to takeoff, you'll start with the pre flight examination of the aircraft to make sure that every little thing is in top shape for your lesson. Following the ground analysis, the instructor will walk-through taxiing the runway and take off. Flight time in the course of your discovery flight will range from 25-45 minutes While you are in the air the instructor will provide additional details as to the function of the plane's cockpit console and allow you to steer the plane on your own. They might have even showed you a trick or two, like a 180 degree turn, or something similar. This is a great exploratory opportunity for you to really feel the sensation of flying and make a determination as to if it's a pursuit that's right for you.
