Take a Discovery Flight

A Discovery Flight is the first step into the exciting world of aviation. Whether you’re just curious about what it’s like to fly a small airplane, or have the goal of a lifelong aviation career…a discovery flight at Aspen Flying Club will introduce you to all the thrills aviation has to offer. Check out our Discovery Flight packages below.

The Future Pilot

This is for the person who is reasonably certain he or she wants to pursue flight training, but just wants to be sure before committing too much time, money, or effort. You and one of our instructors spend a little time on the ground discussing the basics of flying before going up for your first, albeit brief (45 minute) flight. Cost: $130

The Front Range Experience

Don’t think you’re ready to pursue a pilot’s certificate? This flight is designed to change your mind! You and one of our instructors will go up for about an hour, exploring the benefits and beauty of flying a general aviation aircraft. Perhaps you’d like to poke around in the Rocky Mountain foothills, see downtown Denver from the air, fly over your house, or do a touch-n-go at a nearby airport…the choice is yours. Cost: $179

The Premium

If you’re the type of person who only wants the best… this package is for you. Fly one of our newer Garmin G1000 equipped Cessnas. The G1000’s revolutionary design brings new levels of situational awareness, simplicity and safety to the cockpit. It puts a wealth of flight-critical data at your fingertips. Its glass flight deck presents flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic and engine data on large-format, high-resolution displays. Cost: $199

The Aerobatic Experience

Straight and level flight not your cup of tea? Join one of our instructors in the Xtreme Decathlon for some loops, rolls, and spins. This adrenaline-charged experience is not for the faint of heart, but if you like roller coasters…you’ll love this! Cost: $349

Discover Gliding

An experience or gift that may grow into a lifestyle! Our 90-minute Motor Glider Discovery Flight is the perfect introduction to both powered flight and gliding. Great for licensed powered-flight pilots and for beginners alike. Experience the beauty of silent soaring! Cost: $199


* There will be a $30.00 charge for each additional passenger on The Future Pilot, The Front Range Experience, and The Premium Discovery Flights.
** We are unable to accommodate additional passengers on The Aerobatic Experience or Discover Gliding, as they take place in 2-seat aircraft.
*** Gratuity is not included or required but is always appreciated.
