Soar into the Illinois skies during a thirty-minute hands-on Introductory Flight Lesson over Aurora, IL. This one-on-one flying lesson with a Certified Flight Instructor begins at the Aurora Municipal Airport in Sugar Grove, IL where you will meet with your Pilot.

The excitement begins with a short briefing and ground school instruction during which you'll learn about the basics of aviation. When ready, you'll then head out to the tarmac where you’ll aid your Flight Instructor with the pre-flight inspection of the aircraft. Once ready, you and your Instructor will hop into the plane, taxi down the runway and take off for a 30 minute hands-on Scenic Flight Lesson over the second largest city in Illinois. During the flight you'll take the controls and discover for yourself what it is actually like to Pilot a small aircraft!

So, whether you're looking for fun things to do in Chicagoland or for a unique gift, the Aurora Flying Lesson is the ticket!

Question: Can I be present in the plane, along with my fiance, who will actually be taking the lesson?

Answer: Participants may invite guests to the airport to watch the Aurora Discovery Flight Lesson, however they may not ride in the plane during the lesson.

Question: I'd like to give my wife the Aurora Flight Lesson for her birthday. How much will she actually get to take the controls?

Answer: After 15 minutes of ground school, the lesson consists of 30 minutes of flight time. Flight time is defined as 'chocks away to chocks' under, meaning as soon as you start moving until you stop and includes taxi, take off and landing. The instructor will take off and land the aircraft but she will be can be at the controls the entire time they are in the air. If you choose the 60 minute additional option that is all extra flight time and does not extend the ground school.

Question: If I choose to pursue my pilot's license, can I count this lesson towards my hours?

Answer: Yes.

Question: I'm not sure of my friend's weight, but he's close to the 225lb limit. How strict are they about the weight?

Answer: The weight limit is set by the FAA based on the aircraft and is set for safety. They are very strict about the limit and if it's in question they will weigh you before the lesson. The limit includes your weight with clothes you're wearing on the day of the class.

Question: What happens to my Experience Days certificate if my lesson is cancelled for weather?

Answer: If your lesson is cancelled you will be rescheduled directly by the flight school. Your certificate will have a status of "redeemed" and cannot be used again.
