How to choose between an Introductory Flight (see Training Page) and a Discovery Flight? Operating OFC for more than 11 years has revealed that some people come out for an Intro Flight but don't really want all that formality. In fact they may be overwhelmed by the volume of information thrown at them during the ground and flight portions of the Intro...like drinking out of a fire hose. All they really want is to get a sense of what it feels like to pilot an airplane. So an Intro Flight is what you should choose if you are pretty sure you want to pursue flight lessons. We will follow the training syllabus on the Intro. But if you are not certain and just need a more informal training event to see if you think you will like being in a small airplane and learning to fly then a Discovery Flight is what you are looking for. No syllabus to follow, no ground school, no preflight inspection training, no briefings, just a casual flight lesson with you at the controls of an airplane! Purchase a logbook and your instructor will log the lesson if you wish. If you come away loving the Discovery Flight experience we will schedule your next step; the Intro Flight lesson following the syllabus for the certificate you seek.
WOW...Discovery flights make a unique, memorable and
special GIFT IDEA that may propel someone into a new life's passion or career. So if you are looking for something to get someone you have found it!!!
Discovery flights offered by ORLANDI FLIGHT CENTER provide a way for you to experience flight training without the ground and preflight training that comes with our Intro Flights. These instructional flights give you a TASTE OF FLYING but also let you relax and marvel at the splendor of flight with a casual flight lesson.
Clean, comfortable aircraft, a courteous and well trained flight instructor, and a training experience to show you how getting your pilot certificate will enhance your life...that's what you get through a Discovery Flight at OFC. This is a flight lesson with you at the controls so it can be logged. IT IS NOT AN AIR TOUR; WE DO NOT OFFER THOSE. If you desire a more formal lesson with a ground and preflight component then go with one of our Intro packages on the previous page.
