After that, you'll inspect the surfaces, controls, and instruments of your plane before heading for the skies where panoramic views await. You'll be in control of the plane for the entirety of this 60-minute flight (with the help of your instructor, of course), and it's a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the world of aviation.
