GPTC Flight Instructor Roland with Rebecca on a Discovery Flight
Join the hundreds and hundreds of people who have experienced what it is like to be a pilot. During your Discovery Flight with one of our professional Flight Instructors, you will get your hands on the controls and actually fly the plane.
Here’s what you need to know and what to expect:
You can show up on time for your appointment. There is no reason to be early as your Instructor may still working with another student.
Wear comfortable, seasonal clothing and good footwear.
Your flight will last about 45 minutes but the whole experience will take about an hour and a half.
We want your flight to be a great experience. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will reschedule it for a better day.
Your Instructor will take some time before the flight to go over the basics of how to fly the plane.
After take off, and when you are comfortable and ready, your Instructor will let you take the controls and be the pilot.
We can fly over your house if it is near Binghamton. Mention this to your Instructor so he can find it on his portable GPS before you takeoff.
After the flight, your Instructor will take the time to answer any question you may have about aviation or learning to fly.
If you have any other questions or are ready to schedule your flight, give us a call at 607-821-2982.
