Take A Discovery Flight – Colorado Locations

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. Due to airport traffic congestion, this flight is not available at our Centennial Airport and Rocky Mountain Metro Airport locations.  This flight can be scheduled at Western Air Flight Academy at KCFO.


Front Range Experience

Don’t think you’re ready to pursue a pilots license? This flight is designed to change your mind! 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 poke around in the Rocky Mountain foothills, see downtown Denver from the air, or fly over your house… the choice is yours.


The Premium

If you’re the type of person who only wants the best… this package is for you. Fly one of our newer, Garmin G1000 or G3X touchscreen equipped aircraft. The “glass cockpit” revolutionary design avionics 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 flightdeck presents flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic and engine data on large-format, high-resolution displays.


The Aerobatic Experience

Straight and level flight not your cup of tea? Join one of our instructors in the Xtreme Decathlon for some loops, rolls, and spins. This thrill-charged experience is not for the feint of heart, but if you like roller coasters… you’ll love this!
