Take your first flight, the discovery flight!

A discovery flight is the first step into the exciting world of aviation. Whether you’re just curious about what it’s like to fly a small airplane or have the goal of a lifelong aviation career… a discovery flight at Aurora Flight Training introduces you to all the thrills of aviation. See our discovery flight packages below and contact us or visit Aurora Flight Training to schedule your flight.

Future Pilot – $149

Reasonably certain that you want to pursue flight training, but want to be sure before committing too much time, money, or effort? The Future Pilot package takes you and a certified flight instructor on about a half-hour introductory flight lesson from the Aurora Airport (between Wilsonville and Canby) over the local area in a safe environment to familiarize you with the airplane, airport, and general awe of taking the controls of an aircraft for the first time. The Future Pilot package also includes about a half-hour ground lesson on a variety of aviation topics including principles of flight, aerodynamics, navigation, aircraft operation, or simply answering your questions.

Oregon Experience – $179

Don’t think you’re ready to pursue a pilot certificate? The Oregon Flight Experience package is designed to change your mind. You and a certified flight instructor fly for about an hour exploring the benefits and beauty of flying a general aviation aircraft. Perhaps you’d like to poke around in the mountains, see downtown Portland from the air, fly over your house, or perform a touch-n-go landing at a nearby airport… the choice is yours!

Premium – $199

If you’re the type of person who only wants the best… the Premium package is for you! You and a certified flight instructor fly one of our newer Cessna aircraft with the Garmin G1000 glass panel. The G1000’s revolutionary design brings new levels of situational awareness, simplicity, and safety to the cockpit with large high-resolution displays showing flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic, and engine data.
