Call today to book your Discovery Flight! 250-656-2833
What is a Discovery Flight? We're glad you asked!
A Discovery Flight is an introduction to the world of aviation, a chance to find out how amazing it feels to fly an aircraft, and an opportunity for you to find out more about the process of flight training. When you decide to pursue your Private Pilot Licence, you can also count the Discovery Flight towards your required hours.
You can book a Discovery Flight for any time that works with your schedule. We'll book you a time slot of 1.5 hours with one of our highly trained and qualified flight instructors. This 1.5 hour time slot will culminate with a 35 minute flight with the Instructor. To reserve your time, please call the Victoria Flying Club office at 250-656-2833. The cost of your Discovery Flight is just $94.95 + tax.
When you arrive for your Discovery Flight, you'll check in at our Dispatch desk, and then meet your instructor. You'll get a tour of our training facility and a look behind the scenes at the pre-flight procedures before heading out to the aircraft for your flight during which you will be able to take control of the aircraft.
Our fleet of Cessna 172S Model aircraft is kept in amazing condition by our in-house maintenance team, to ensure a comfortable and safe flight. Each of our aircraft has four seats. You will sit up front with the instructor and you can bring a friend or family member along for the ride. Photos are welcome and encouraged!
After a quick safety briefing, you'll be ready to take to the skies! With a headset borrowed from our office, you'll be able to hear the instructor as he/she speaks with Air Traffic Controllers, and you'll be able to communicate with the Instructor as well. Please feel free to ask questions and learn all you can!
Once you are up in the air, your instructor will hand the controls over to you. That's right, you'll get to do the flying! You'll enjoy a scenic flight around the local area and see Victoria like you've never seen it before!
When your flight is over, check in back at the office to find out more about becoming a member of the Victoria Flying Club. We can complete your membership form on the spot, and can send you on your way with a complete ground school package and your next lesson booked.
We hope you enjoy your Discovery Flight and we look forward to helping you discover the joy of flight!
