Popular Questions

Can I bring a guest on the discovery flight?

Absolutely! Our Skyhawk line includes 2 additional seats provided the aircraft remains within weight and balance limits! No extra cost for additional guest.


Can the flight time be counted toward my pilot license?

Yes! Any package flown in the Skyhawk can be applied toward the 35 hour private pilot minimum required by the FAA! If you’re a licensed pilot and you’re interested in a seaplane or multiengine rating, you can apply either discovery package toward your FAA minimum training hours for that certificate!

Documentation is not required for a discovery, however if you decide to enroll in any of our training courses, then documentation will be required prior to enrollment. See course entry prerequisites.
