If you like to fly, or if you have never been in a small airplane before and want to experience the thrill of flying without spending a small fortune, then Right Rudder Aviation is the place for you. For as little as $20, you will get a “mini” lesson and flight time in one of three airplanes of your choosing. The Piper PA-11 Cub Special is a classic airplane and was used extensively in World War II for training, reconnaissance, transporting supplies, and medical evacuation. It is a propeller plane with tandem seating and dual controls. It has a simple, lightweight design and is exceptionally good at low speed handling. This is the plane that the adventurous type would choose. The Technam Eaglet is their newest plane with Garmin avionics and room for two. It is considered one of the safest trainers on the market but is a lot of fun to fly. The Cessna 172 is a four-seat plane with an impressive safety record so if you are a bit nervous about flying in a small aircraft, this plane would be a good choice for you. The Discovery Flight Experience lasts approximately half an hour from start to finish with about 10 exciting minutes in the air. The pilot may ask if you want a gentle flight or an adventurous one, so that is up to you. They also have prices for longer flights or, if you are a pilot, you can rent an airplane. All of the pilots are instructors with the flight school and have many years of experience. The privately owned airport has a turf runway and several hangars. Only a few planes fly in and out which makes it an ideal place to experience the personal attention that you get at Right Rudder Aviation.
