What is a discovery flight? A discovery flight is a chance to see if flying is for you. You will get an hour of flight time in the aircraft with a choice of destination (Shiprock or Navajo Dam). You won't just be a passenger, but rather you will get to take the controls with the instructor talking you through the process. Learn to climb, descend, and take off all in your first hour of flight! A discovery flight also includes an hour of ground discussion where you can ask the Certified Flight Instructor any questions you have.

If it is your first time flying you may get a little motion sick. If you have a tendency to get motion sick, the best time to fly is early morning when the air is cool and calm. Call or email us to schedule your first flight. $200 for your first hour of flight.

Discovery flights make great gifts for birthdays and special occasions! We offer gift vouchers for $200.

Roadrunner flight school enabled me achieve a life long goal that I never thought I would be able to achieve- becoming a pilot. I was able to start with zero flight experience and seven months later I was a certified Private Pilot. I’ve been able to forge amazing friendships with other pilots and the aviation community, and have been able to pilot various Roadrunner aircraft all over the Southwest. I can’t thank Michael and his amazing flight school enough for giving me the ability to achieve my dream! -- Bret, PPL May 2021
Ricardo and Michael are both knowledgeable and friendly, and I always look forward to another lesson with either of them. Flight instructors can choose to just sit in the right seat and farm you for flight hours, but you can tell Roadrunner is actively invested in your success as a competent and proficient pilot from beginning to end. --Dorian, PPL February 2022
The ground school classes, flight instructions & general guidance is top of the line. I can’t say enough good things about these folks, great people, running a great business! After obtaining my PPL I continued to train with Michael to acquire my tail dragger endorsement. Whatever your pilot needs are, this place can help get you there. -- Tyrell, PPL September 2021
