Discovery Flights Brisbane

Pursuing your dreams of flying an aircraft can be realised at PathFinder Aviation. From just $217 for a 30-minute Discovery Flight, your flying goals that seem out of reach can now become a reality in Brisbane.

Get a taste for flying without having to commit to regular flying lessons by taking part in an introductory Discovery Flight at PathFinder Aviation at Archerfield. We have two Discovery Flight options available: choose from a 60-minute or 30-minute flight.

This is the best introduction to flying anyone could hope for. Flying in a flight simulator is just not going to cut it. Get up in the air with your hands on the controls in a real aeroplane and experience the thrill of flying with the safety of an instructor to guide you.

60-minute Discovery Flight $377

If you’re interested in learning to fly, then this is the perfect experience. During your 60-minute Discovery Flight over Brisbane, you will take the controls and experience the thrill of flight under the expert guidance of an experienced flight instructor.

This will give you a ‘feel’ for the machine in its natural environment and you will find it surprisingly easy. You will only be asked to do things the instructor knows you can easily accomplish. You can trust that you will be completely safe while in the capable hands of your experienced flight instructor.

30-minute Discovery Flight $217

During your 30-minute flight with a friendly, experienced instructor you will get to have a go on the controls and experience the sensations and thrill of flying. Not only will you get to fly a plane but you will also be able to take in the spectacular views of Brisbane. This is a great budget-friendly option to give you a taste of what flying is like.


Why Take Part in a Discovery Flight with PathFinder Aviation?

An introductory Discovery Flight allows you to trial flying an aeroplane before you commit to flying lessons. Even if you think you want to dive right into the pilot seat and get your pilot licence, taking part in a one-off Discovery Flight first is always a smart choice.

If you haven’t thought of flying before, getting in the cockpit of an aircraft is a new and exciting experience you can tick off your bucket list. Flying a plane is something most people don’t get the chance to do in their lifetime, so why not take the opportunity now to see what all the fuss is about?

If you’ve always liked the idea of flying but been too afraid to try it because you are worried it will be too hard or too unsafe, you may be surprised to find out that learning to fly is actually much easier than you think and very safe!

Learning to fly in our aircraft is an achievement not to be missed! All you have to do is take the first step with us, and as soon as you are up in the air, we know you will fall in love with the experience and want to keep flying again and again.

At PathFinder Aviation we set you on the right path to becoming a pilot.
