Our introductory “Discovery Flight” is a flight lesson designed to give you the opportunity to see first hand if flying is for you. Because you will be flying with a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) the entire flight can be logged toward your pilots license.
From takeoff to landing you will experience the hands on fundamentals of flight. You will be introduced to the flight instruments, throttle, yoke and rudder pedals and how to use them to control the aircraft. Under the watchful eye of your instructor you will be allowed to pilot the aircraft in turns, climbs, and descents to see just what flying is all about.

Whether you want to learn to fly or want to take some time to enjoy the scenery Hixson Aviation has you covered. We offer relaxing flights to take in our beautiful scenic city and surrounding areas.

*In some aircraft up to two additional passengers may come along and ride in the back seat during the lesson for an additional $15 each.
