WNC Aviation…… it's time to be your own Captain

Discovery Flight $139

Have you ever wondered what all those buttons, dials and switches in a cockpit are for? Or what actually makes an aircraft fly? How many times have you seen airplanes soaring in the sky and wished you could play in the clouds, too? For all those who have ever dreamed of flying, or wanted to give someone else the opportunity, you've landed at the right spot. Get started with a Discovery Flight for just $139.00.

Your Discovery Flight will begin with a brief tour of our facility and fleet. Together, you and your instructor will complete a pre-flight inspection of your aircraft and a short briefing. Then, you'll climb aboard one of the Cessna 172’s and take to the skies.

No previous experience is necessary, and you’ll probably be able to do the first take off yourself under the watchful eye of an experienced FAA certified instructor pilot, of course. Then experience how to maneuver the aircraft through turns, climbs, and glides, and fly the aircraft back to the airport. It's a great way to start a career and even change your life. Your discovery flight adventure will last approximately one hour with the actual flight portion lasting approximately 30 minutes.

So, if you're ready to share the skies with the likes of the Wright brothers, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart and Neil Armstrong, schedule your Discovery Flight and let's go fly! After all, it’s time to be your own Captain!

Please note that Discovery Flights are NOT scenic tours. They are only for individuals genuinely curious about learning to fly. As such, guests are not generally permitted on Discovery Flights. The parent or guardian of a minor will be allowed to accompany the minor within certain weight limitations for safety.
