Lots of individuals dream of flying but never actually take a serious look at it. Taking the courses necessary to become a licensed pilot are offered by numerous flight schools all over America. Many flight schools offer “discovery flights” where you can actually take a short flight with an instructor.

Besides the actually flying time you will meet one or more of the school’s flight instructors, review what is involved in obtaining a pilot’s license, tour the flight school, check out a real flight simulator, understand the costs and get all of your questions answered. It might just be the best way for you to decide whether becoming a pilot is right for you.
