Take A Discovery Flight – California Location
A Discovery Flight is the first step into the exciting world of aviation. Whether you’re just curious about what it’s like to fly a small airplane, or have the goal of a lifelong aviation career…a discovery flight at American Flight Schools will introduce you to all the thrills aviation has to offer. Check out our Discovery Flight packages below.
The Future Pilot
This is for the person who is reasonably certain he or she wants to pursue flight training, but just wants to be sure before committing too much time, money, or effort. You and one of our instructors spend a little time on the ground discussing the the basics of flying before going up for your first, albeit brief (30 to 40 minute) flight.
If you’re the type of person who only wants the best… this package is for you. Fly our Garmin G1000 equipped Cessna 172. The G1000’s revolutionary design brings new levels of situational awareness, simplicity and safety to the cockpit. It puts a wealth of flight-critical data at your fingertips. Its glass flight deck presents flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic and engine data on large-format, high-resolution displays. You and one of our instructors will go up for about an hour, exploring the benefits and beauty of flying a general aviation aircraft. Perhaps you’d like to see downtown San Francisco from the air, fly over the golden gate bridge, or do a touch-n-go at a nearby airport…the choice is yours!
