Anderson Aviation has teamed up with Be A Pilot program (www.beapilot.com) to encourage people to experience flying and explore the many opportunities that the aviation industry has to offer. Those who have never flown in a small airplane are curious about what their reaction may be to the experience and would like to take a brief preliminary flight in a small aircraft before signing up for pilot training. Anderson Aviation offers such an Introductory Flight, about half an hour for $69. This flight will take off on one of the same Honolulu International Airport runways you will be using as a student, flies out over Pearl Harbor, out to the practice area, on towards Barbers Point and returns over the ocean to land at the airport. Enroute the instructor pilot will name some basic flight controls present in the aircraft, use them to demonstrate some basic pilot maneuvers and point out some common navigation points along the way. You will feel the sense of release from earth-bound restraints, the physical sensations of being airborne, the freedom of self-controlled flight, the open magnificent view and if you’re like most, you’ll return exhilarated, strongly anticipating your next aviation experience.
