Introductory Flight Packages


An Introductory Flight is a great way to get a feel for what flying is all about, and to determine if flight training is right for you. Under the close observation of a Certified Flight Instructor next to you, you will actually control a Cessna C-172 training aircraft from the pilot's seat.


With guidance of your instructor, you will pilot a single-engine aircraft to your location. You will have the opportunity to take off from Corona Municipal Airport, fly to your destination, and land if you wish. Rest assured, each of our Cessna 172 aircraft have dual yokes so your instructor can help safely guide you in your takeoff or landing, or take over control of the aircraft at any given time. We welcome and encourage you to take a passenger along for the ride.


Who can take an Introductory Flight?


Anyone! No prior experience is needed. You don't even need a driver's license!


Even kids are welcome!
