Held at Regina International Airport, the discovery flight lesson begins as the instructor leads a pre-flight briefing and a walk-around, or pre-flight inspection. Once aboard, the instructor demonstrates how to taxi the plane before letting the student continue taxiing to the runway. After the instructor performs the takeoff, the student takes over the controls, earning hands-on experience executing basic flying exercises. The lesson concludes as the instructor lands the plane and leads a debriefing.
Regina Flying Club
While the world showered accolades upon Charles Lindbergh for completing the first solo Trans-Atlantic flight, the Regina Flying Club’s founders began training pilots for $10 per solo hour. Starting with a fleet of just two de Havilland Moths, the club steadily grew for the next 80 years. Today it celebrates a rich history that spans training World War II pilots for the Royal Air Force and witnessing the rise of commercial aviation. In that tradition, Regina Flying Club’s instructors continue preparing pilots for all licence categories. They also charter flights for scenic tours, aerial photography, and wildlife surveys with their fleet of single-engine Cessna planes and a Piper Twin Comanche. Each plane is also available for rental, allowing experienced pilots to skywrite their resumes for potential employers.
