Discovery Flights

Discovery Flights

 

Simply the safest, most fun way to experience the thrill of flying!

IMG_7450

Coasting along on a chair in the open sky, a brightly colored parachute filled with air above you and beneath you is the diverse and ever-changing terrain of fields, roads, streams, and mountains of New Hampshire.

 

On discovery flights, after a thorough pre-flight check, you sit behind the pilot and buckle into a harness. Once the take-off area is cleared, the instructor will call out “Clear Prop!” before adding throttle to the engine which will start the aircraft on a forward roll. With increasing speed, the parachute inflates overhead, and gently lifts the aircraft into the sky.

 

Highlights:
  •  Unobstructed view from above of terrain and wildlife
  •  Nothing to do but sit back and enjoy the view and take some pictures
  •  Your pilot is a Certified Flight Instructor for powered parachutes with many years of aviation experience
