Behind closed doors (some more than others), we secretly want to be a fighter pilot and have a code name like Goose or Maverick. During this day long activity, join other adventurous New Yorkers for a thrilling hands-on introduction to flying. With Discover Outdoors, you’ll first partake in an exclusive training session as you learn the fundamentals and safety procedures of flying a plane. From there, you will have the opportunity to put those newfound skills to the test, as you fly the plane yourself. For an hour, enjoy the open skies as a pilot. To top off a day in the air, you’ll visit a nearby winery to polish off a glass or three.

Experience how easy, safe, and fun flying can be!
