Countdown To Christmas: Learn To Fly

Learn to fly

Every year people panic to find the perfect gift. We at T2C have been collecting idea’s all year long to bring you the perfect gift guide at all price levels. When you’re at the end of your rope trying to find the perfect Christmas present this year, come to this guide for some great suggestions.

When it comes to pilot training dreams that go sky-high, there’s no better place than New York to learn how to fly! Take to the skies, seated at the controls of a Piper PA-28-181 Archer II. The Piper PA-28-181 Archer II itself is a gloriously light-weight aircraft, designed for flights that specialize in pilot training and personal use. The airplane offers an impressive 35.5-foot wingspan. It also boasts a climb rate of 667 feet per minute, and easily affords speeds between 102-125 knots while cruising. Which means you’re in for a flying lesson that’s fun, stable and exciting, thanks to an aircraft that holds a top reputation in the aviation world!

Due to FAA regulations, your flight instructor handles the takeoff and landing components of the flight, but once at cruising altitude and for the duration of your flight, your instructor will hand over the controls and teach you all the basics you need to know to learn how to fly! As you soar through the skies, you’ll practice maneuvers like maintaining altitude, climbing up and down, turning left and right, judging throttle speed, keeping a straight line, monitoring compass, and even handling turbulence. All the while, your airplane lesson in Long Island will take you alongside some of the New York area’s most breathtaking urban and ocean scenery!

Your pilot training isn’t complete until you’ve had a chance to ask your instructor any lingering questions you may have about the airplane lesson, or even about aviation school in Long Island and how to get a private pilot’s license. The end of your flying lesson is also a wonderful time to capture some moments on camera next to the plane or in the cockpit, before heading home with your new stash of lifelong memories!

The cost is $152 for a half hour and $245 for a full hour.

From the hangar, to the runway, to the sky high above — there’s no time like the present to make NYC pilot training dreams come true! This Learn To Fly experience in New York is the perfect way to spread your wings, embrace unfathomable elevations, and give an intro flight lesson a go — straight from the cockpit of an airplane.
