Discovery Flight


Get ready to let your spirits soar high with the Lake Elmo Aeros Discovery Flight Experience. This is more than just a tour; it’s your introduction to the exhilarating world of aviation and a chance to take the controls of an airplane.

Your journey begins with a warm welcome from our dedicated and experienced flight instructors at the Lake Elmo Aero. An initial briefing will explain the basic principles of flight and familiarize you with the aircraft’s controls and systems. We believe in interactive learning, so feel free to ask any questions you might have.

Next, you’ll be escorted to one of our meticulously maintained training aircraft. Once settled into your seat, you’ll be connected to the aircraft’s communication system. You’ll experience pre-flight checks firsthand, as your instructor prepares for takeoff, making sure every detail is perfect.

Now, it’s time for the thrill as your aircraft gracefully lifts off from the ground. Marvel at the stunning views of Lake Elmo and the surrounding landscapes from a vantage point few get to enjoy. The flight lasts an hour, but the memories you’ll create are timeless.

During the flight, under the watchful eye of your instructor, you’ll have the chance to take control. Guided and supported by their expertise, you’ll feel the exhilaration and empowerment of maneuvering an aircraft in the sky. Whether you’re executing simple turns or maintaining straight and level flight, you’re sure to gain a new perspective on the beauty of flying.

Upon landing, you’ll have the opportunity to debrief with your instructor, ask any remaining questions, and discuss the next steps if you decide that you wish to further pursue your newfound passion for flight.

The Lake Elmo Aeros Discovery Flight is designed to inspire, educate, and provide an unforgettable experience. It’s an invitation to a community of those who defy gravity and see the world from above.
