Discovery Flight

A Discovery Flight (also called a “trial instructional flight” or “TIF flight”) is an exciting and informative intro to flight training experience. During a trial instructional flight, your instructor will guide you through the process of preparing for and executing a flight from take-off to landing. You will have the thrilling opportunity to be at the controls during takeoff and in-flight while also assisting in the landing procedure. The Discovery Flight is designed to provide you with a glimpse of the fun and excitement that comes with learning to fly while under the watchful and experienced eye of your instructor.

The unique opportunity of a TIF flight offers individuals a chance to determine if flight training is the right path for them without any pressure or obligation. For a flat rate of $220, you can embark on a one-hour discovery flight that is perfect for all ages and requires no prior experience or preparation. Whether you’re just curious about aviation or considering it as a serious pursuit, a trial instructional flight with Blue River will leave you with an unforgettable experience and a better understanding of what it takes to become a pilot.
