Piper Cub Discovery Flight
Discover YOUR Wings with Race City Flight Operations!
A Discovery Flight is like a mini flight lesson, it’s an introduction into this amazing life our students and instructors get to experience every day. The person taking the discovery flight will get a chance to take the controls under the watchful guidance of our flight instructor. Your introductory flight will be approximately 45 minutes, but plan for a little over an hour. Prior to taking your flight, your instructor will walk you through preflighting the aircraft to gain a basic understanding of what pilots do before their flight to insure that the aircraft is in airworthy condition.
This flight time can be entered in a temporary logbook and will count toward the 40 hour FAA training requirement when you continue training. Please note that Discovery Flights are NOT scenic tours. They are only for individuals genuinely curious about learning to fly. However, additional lesson time can be purchased at our normal rates after enrollment and proof of citizenship.
This is not done in our normal Cessna 172s but rather the iconic
1946 Piper J-3 Cub!
What better to see what it’s like to fly in the way a pilot used to learn in!
Discovery Flights are $350 per flight.
