Demo Flight

A demo flight is a great way to experience what it’s like to train to become a pilot. This also provides an opportunity to check out the aircraft, the instructors, and the facilities here at Aces High Aviation.

What you can expect during your demo flight:

The instructor will take you and teach give you a brief introduction on how to prepare the aircraft for flight. They will then start the aircraft and taxi with you to the runway. You are at the controls the entire flight. You will perform the taxi and perform the takeoff with assistance from the instructor.

The goal of a demo flight is to give you the real feel and experience of a first flight lesson, so you get a feel for the aircraft out over the coast with assistance from the instructor feeling the plane climb, turn and respond to your every input.

After this you will perform some maneuvers and then head back into the airport. You get around 1 hour 30 – 45 minutes with the instructor and an hour in the aircraft to go into your very own logbook!

Step 1

Cessna 172 SP – $230

Cessna 172 G1000 – $240

Schedule a free meeting with the owner of Aces High Aviation. Learn about the ins and outs, what you’ll encounter and anything and everything you need to know about planning out your flight training and beyond.

If you’d like to take advantage of this please call anytime to schedule a meeting with us.

1 hour of additional pre-flight briefing – $60 (highly recommended)

Pre-flight briefing – one-on-one with the instructor. You will be guided through how to move the aircraft on the ground, how to take off, climb, level off, and make level turns. You will also learn to how to get back down, descend, enter the traffic pattern, fly the approach, and have a go at the landing. If you choose to add the 1-hour pre-flight briefing, you will get much more out of the flight itself and you will experience what it’s like to actually learn to fly.

We only have the newer, more powerful, 180hp, fuel-injected, 172S models.

They come very well-equipped with IFR GPS, autopilot, and the G1000 even has air conditioning.

All prices include instructor time, fuel, and oil. What you see is what you pay!
