Nashville, TN (PRWEB) December 12, 2007
Ever thought about giving a gift that inspires? Sometimes all someone needs is the gift that lights the spark of inspiration. PilotJourney.com a national flight school marketing company has teamed up with over 300 flight schools nationwide to offer a $99 Discovery Flight Gift Certificate, a real flying lesson in a real airplane.
The Discovery Flight gift certificate will allow the recipient to actually fly an airplane from the pilot's seat while an FAA Certified Flight Instructor is in the co-pilots seat. This is an actual flight lesson -- not a ride according to the Pilot Journey website designed for someone who as always thought about learning how to fly but never has taken the first step.
What's the benefit of a gift like this you might ask? According to the website learning to fly has the ability to "change your life". The reason they say this works is because learning to fly is so much fun and at the same time requires study and self discipline. So what happens along the "pilot journey" and in the end is a person gets better at doing life and is excited about life at the same time. All this because the experience of learning to fly is so much fun that the pilot loves doing it and then grows as a person while on the journey.
There are about 600,000 pilots in the United States with about 40,000 new pilots starting every year. To earn a pilot certificate it takes about 25-30 flight lessons with a flight test at the conclusion of the course. For those interested in a career as a pilot this is perfect time as airlines are cancelling some flights because of a pilot shortage.
The Discovery Flight Certificate includes several items to help the new pilot get ready for the flight lesson such as a 30 minute on-line presentation and a 25 page lesson description. Also included is a 6 month subscription to AOPA Flight Training Magazine, the largest flight training focused magazine in the US.
