Discovery Flights

Have you always wanted to fly an airplane?

Have you always dreamed of taking the controls of an airplane… or taking it a step further and getting your pilots license?  If either of these are true, a Discovery Flight with Windy City Flyers is the thing for you!  The Discovery Flight is structured as an actual flight lesson and will put you at the controls – this will not be just an ordinary airplane ride!

First time flying? No need to worry, one of our FAA-certified flight instructors will guide you through all phases of flight, including:

  • Ground discussion and weather briefing

  • Hands-on preflight of the airplane

  • Use of checklists

  • Radio communication with the tower

  • Takeoff and in-flight maneuvers

  • Landing the airplane and post-flight briefings

Discovery Flight

Your guest(s) can fly down the Chicago Skyline, head north toward Lake Geneva, perform maneuvers in the practice area, pass landmarks like Wrigley Field, Navy Pier, Millennium Park and Northerly Island.
