|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, interested in getting a pilots license, or you have the goal of a lifelong aviation career…a discovery flight at Sunair will introduce you to all the thrills aviation has to offer. Check out our Discovery Flight packages below.|
Can I bring a guest on the discovery flight?
Absolutely! Our Skyhawk line and Beech Duchess include 2 additional seats provided the aircraft remains within weight and balance limits! No extra cost for additional guest. Unfortunately, the seaplane cannot accommodate extra 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!
Does Sunair need a copy of my US passport or Birth Certificate prior to a discovery flight?
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.
What flight maneuvers will I do on the discovery flight?
You will do basic flight maneuvers such as straight-and-level flight, climbs, descents, turns, and navigation! Don’t worry, our highly experienced instructors will be there right next to you to assist in any way possible!
