What is a Discovery Flight?

A Discovery Flight at CTI is the first step to finding out if a future in flight is for you.

One-on-one with a Credentialed Flight Instructor

When you climb inside the cockpit on one of our Discovery Flights, you’ll find yourself sitting next to one of our friendly, supportive, and highly qualified flight instructors. They’ll answer all of your questions about the aircraft, what it’s like to learn to fly, and what you can look forward to after qualifying. Every CTI flight instructor is FAA certified – so you’ll be in the safest of hands. 

Fly in a State-of-the-art Aircraft

Unlike some flight schools, CTI students learn to fly in a cutting-edge fleet, featuring the very latest in comfort and technology. You’ll get to experience it yourself as you take the skies on your Discovery Flight at CTI. You may find yourself in our DA20, our DA42, or even our WACO Great Lakes.

Learn the basics of aviation

Your Discovery Flight at CTI isn’t just about seeing the world from above. You’ll enjoy a taste of what it’s like to learn to fly – from learning about pre-flight planning to taking the controls yourself. This gives you a great taste of the possibilities awaiting. 

Log your first 50 minutes of flight time

That’s right. It’s not just the instructor who does all the work on your Discovery Flight. Once you’re in the air, you’ll get the chance to take the controls yourself, getting “hands-on” flight time you can put towards your training if you do decide to learn with CTI. And don’t worry – your instructor will guide you every step of the way, giving you the chance to enjoy the experience and savor every moment.
