Dreaming of flying?

Take the controls on your very first flight with one of our highly trained flight instructors giving you instruction.

If you are by your self:

You’ll learn what all the dials and displays on the instrument panel are for. But that’s not the best part. You will taxi and take off on an up to 45-minute flight where you will (with your flight instructor sitting next to you) fly the aeroplane yourself.

If 2 people are present:

You and your companion will fly out east over fire islands to Brookhaven Airport or over the Long Island Sound to Bridgeport, where you will land, switch seats with your friend so they can fly the return portion of the trip. Introductory flight for two people comes with 10 minutes of Pre-flight inspection and 15 minutes of the ground lesson including up to total 90 minutes of fly time with a Cessna 172 or Piper Archer.

Itinerary 3 people:

You and your companion will fly out east over fire islands to Brookhaven Airport or over the Long Island Sound to Bridgeport, where you will land twice and switch the seat with your friends so they can fly also. Introductory flight for three people comes with 10 minutes of Pre-flight inspection and 15 minutes of the ground lesson including up to total 135 minutes of fly time with a Cessna 172 or Piper Archer.
