What is an Introductory Flight?
On an Introductory Flight (sometimes called a Discovery or Familiarization Flight) a certified flight instructor will take you for an approximate 20 min flight. Typically we fly around the town of Vanderhoof and over the Nechako River and our beautiful valley. While you’re up you will get the opportunity to try flying the plane with the supervision and assistance of an instructor.
It’s a great way to find out if learning to fly is for you!
Per hour rates:
Cessna 150 $135/hr
Cessna 172 $170/hr
Flight Simulator $80/hr
There are also some required books and supplies.
All together most schools would say the total cost would be about $10,000 – $12000
Vanderhoof is really a wonderful place to learn to fly! We have the wide open valley, little traffic, great instructors and a wonderful supportive aviation community. We are fortunate to have a local examiner as well!
