About This Experience

General Information hide

Learn to Fly a Plane! Experience the thrill of flying as you take over the controls of a Cessna 172 aircraft. Enjoy birds-eye-views of the beautiful Eastern Massachusetts landscape as you learn the basics of flying.

Your flight lesson begins with ground instruction showing you how the aircraft flies, what the controls do, how to read the gauges, and what to look for in conducting the pre-flight inspection. After your ground instruction is complete, you will take to the air on a 30 to 45 minute discovery flight lesson. With the help of your flight instructor, you will actually see what it is like to be a pilot and fly a plane! Flights are usually conducted outside the airport, but you will have a chance to see Mount Wachusett, the Quabbin Reservoir, and the Boston Skyline.

With the ground school and hands-on flight combined, by the end of this aerial adventure, you will have a basic understanding of how to fly an airplane all on your own! So whether it's your dream to fly a plane or you are looking for a unique gift, this Intro Flight in Massachusetts is the ticket!
