What to Expect
Your Discovery Flight is designed to give you a taste of what it's like to be a pilot. You'll spend approximately 60 minutes in the air with one of our certified flight instructors, who will guide you through the basics of flying and answer any questions you may have. You'll also have the opportunity to take the controls and experience the thrill of flying first hand.
During your discovery flight, you'll sit in the pilot seat and the FAA Certified Flight Instructor at your side will allow you to fly for the majority of the flight. A discovery flight is a great option if you’re considering a career in aviation, a new hobby or it can make a unique gift for anyone at any age. You can even bring a friend to ride along. At the end of the flight, the instructor will be able to answer any questions that you may have.
What Happens After the Flight?
So, you've completed your discovery flight and are ready to take the next step? SimpliFly is here to help you take flight towards your aviation dreams and attain your goals. Let's dive into what happens after your first flight with us.
Our team will pair you with a certified flight instructor (CFI) who will work with you to create a personalized plan that fits your schedule and goals. Together, you will establish a flight training schedule, review the syllabus, and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
Before you can start your flight training, you will need to complete a medical exam, purchase your books, and work on completing your ground school and written exam. Our team will be with you every step of the way to ensure you have everything you need to succeed.
Once you have completed your prerequisites, it's time to start building your flight hours and experience. You will work with your CFI to complete flight lessons and ground school, mastering the skills needed to become a proficient pilot.
As you near the end of your flight training, you will work with your CFI to prepare for your check ride. Our team will ensure that you are well-prepared and confident. We'll have stage checks along the way so you can successfully pass your check ride and earn your pilot's license.
Congratulations, you are now a certified pilot! Your aviation journey doesn't have to end here though. Our team can help you continue to improve your skills and earn additional ratings, such as an instrument rating or commercial certificate. Whether you want to fly for fun or pursue a career in aviation, we are here to support you every step of the way.
