We’re sure you’ll catch the aviation bug during your discovery flight and be ready to start at LIFT Academy!

Approximately one hour.

You must be at least 16 years old to participate in a Discovery Flight at LIFT.

Yes! You will be given the chance to fly for a portion of the flight, as you feel comfortable to do so with the qualified guidance of a LIFT certificated flight instructor.

Since a discovery flight is an introductory flight lesson, we can only accommodate one flight. Beyond that, TSA requires further documentation to ensure safety in the airspace system. A discovery flight at LIFT costs $120 for an hour trip around central Indiana.

Discovery flights are conducted with FAA certificated and LIFT standardized flight instructors who will be safely conducting the flight from start to finish.

A discovery flight could be looked at as an introductory flight lesson. Your flight instructor will give you the chance to experience flying the aircraft, exploring the DA40 NG’s capabilities and checking out the area we regularly fly in. You will not be required to do anything you are uncomfortable with, but it allows prospective students a chance to see if they have the “aviation bug.” Symptoms include: permanent smile after touchdown, cravings for more flights and daydreaming at your cubicle or desk in class about a career in the skies.
