Flight School

GETTING STARTED – Intro FLIGHT

Arranging an Intro Flight, with one of our Journey Air flight instructors, is a great way to experience your future as a pilot!

This first flight will also be counted towards your first lesson in obtaining your Private Pilot License (PPL). This Intro Flight will introduce you to both Journey Air Pilot Training staff and instructors, as well as our state-of-the-art aviation school located at Windsor-International Airport.

First, you will meet with one of our Journey Air Flight Instructors to explain the basics of your first familiarization flight, converse about what to expect during a pre-flight briefing on the ground, then take part in the flight itself over Windsor Essex County, and ultimately end with a post-flight debrief!

An Intro Flight will take approximately one hour to complete (including the flight).
