The Discovery Flight
It all starts when you take the leap and pay for that short, one-hour flight that is supposed to be a test to see if flying really is something you might want to get into. (It’s also the cheapest flying you’ll be doing for quite some time!). A good analogy is a drug dealer offering a cheap or free taste, knowing that you’ll get hooked and be back for more. It worked on me. )) Flying, that is.
My discovery flight was made with AJ at Santa Monica Flyers. Here’s a brief clip:
That convinced me to work toward my Sport Certificate, possibly a Private Certificate, but we will see how the time and money budgeting will work out. You don’t have to be independently wealthy to learn to fly, but it probably wouldn’t hurt!
