L3Harris Flight Academy

Discovery Flight

If you are thinking about a pilot career but are still deciding which flight school would be right for you, or perhaps you’re just interested in becoming a pilot for fun or business but haven’t got any flying experience, then why not book a Discovery Flight at the L3Harris Flight Academy in Sanford, Florida and take to the skies!

How to book a Discovery Flight

For just $99 you will be taken up to the skies by one of our experienced instructors for a 45-minute flight around the local area; that might even include flying over Epcot and the Magic Kingdom!

From our campus at Sanford you will experience an international airport environment complete with air traffic control (ATC). Once up in the air, you might even get an opportunity to take the controls and experience what it’s like to be a pilot in command (PIC)!

To book your Discovery Flight contact our Admissions Team on 1-800-U-CAN-FLY.
