We have numerous events for both the new and experienced pilot.

We have various different events for everyone to have fun and learn in. Our Discovery Flight event was created for the brand new pilot that needs help getting set up, our Trivia Game takes the pressure off flying and provides a fun way to learn new aviation facts, and our more traditional events which are designed to test your skills.
