Yes, we do offer a discovery flight! Our discovery flight is divided into two parts, ground briefing and flight time. During the ground briefing, you and your instructor would plan the flight route and set the objective for the flight. During the flight portion, the instructor will demonstrate the four fundamentals of flying. He will also allow you to take control under his direct supervision and experience how to fly basic maneuvers in an airplane. The discovery flight is designed to provide insight into what a flight lesson looks like.

WHAT FLIGHTGEST ACADEMY STUDENTS SAY


"Jonathan R. Huml was enrolled at Cardinal Gibbons High School when he was first interested in flying. Upon recommendation from his grandfather (an instrument-rated pilot), Raymond G. Wile, Jonathan took his first flying lesson at Williamsburg Airport, VA – and was hooked. He was so excited about flying, that we checked out local airports close to RTP to identify a suitable flying instructor. After checking out several airports (some with just grass landing strips), we were advised to check out FlightGest. I met Dr. Gozzo, owner and himself an accomplished pilot, to discuss our situation and quest for pilot’s wings. After working with several great flight instructors at FlightGest, Jon settled on primarily working with Owen Chase. Owen and Jon logged over 50 hours of flying time together (with Jon flying about 75-80 hours total) and multiple cross country flights to Asheville, Kitty Hawk and Williamsburg VA (among others) before Jon’s muscular dystrophy progression made it impossible to continue his training. Flying gave Jon a different & better perspective on life. FlightGest even bought an electric cart to transport Jon to and from the planes. Owen and Frank gave Jon every opportunity to succeed – and for that, we will remain eternally grateful. I cannot say enough good things about the FlightGest staff or how well the operation is run. It is all first class."
DR. RAYMOND A. HUML, FATHER OF JONATHAN R. HUML
