Often, the biggest hurdle to becoming a Private Pilot is the first — you may dream about flying, but you have absolutely no idea where to start. And that's normal. Even the most experienced pilots can remember their first time in the cockpit, when they made the decision to stop thinking about flying and actually take the controls of an airplane.
We know where you're at, because we all began with the same dream — to fly. At Willamette Aviation, we are here to make your first time in the pilot's seat a day you will never forget. Our Discovery Flights are affordably priced at just $299. It's a comprehensive flight experience — not just a scenic hop over a few local farms.
We don't restrict you to one or two of our smaller planes for a Discovery Flight — you are invited to fly any airplane in our fleet, so long as it's one that's appropriate for Private Pilot flight training. This includes our four-seat Cessna 172 Skyhawks, so you're more than welcome to invite one or two passengers to join you on your journey! (If bringing two passengers, please contact us about weight restrictions.)

By the way, if you're a born pilot, the ear-to-ear grin that comes after your first time at the controls is perfectly normal. Wait a few days for the effect to wear off, and then call us in the morning.
Did we mention Discovery Flights are just $299? We book them all the time, but there's no doubt one of our instructors can fit in to your busy schedule. Call us at (503) 678-2252, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you have what it takes to get in the pilot's seat.
Discovery Flights also make a great gift for that special person who is ready to learn how to fly — our online gift certificates are just a click away.
