Discover if flying is as exciting for you as it is for us!

What is a Discovery Flight?

Discover the thrill of flight with a Red Arrow Discovery Flight—an exhilarating experience designed to give you a taste of life as a pilot.

Take part in one of our discovery flights, designed to familiarize you with the possibilities of pilot training and an introduction to the intricacies of aviation to see if the prospect of being a pilot resonates with you.

As you soar through the Texas skies with a Red Arrow instructor, you’ll get the chance to see our local points of interest like the El Paso Mountain Star, the volcanic crater known as the Kilbourne Hole, Downtown El Paso from above, the expansive landscapes of West El Paso, and even the distinctive landmarks like Canutillo High School's blue football field. If you book during the fall, you can also enjoy the seasonal La Union Corn Maze.

Come fly with us today and see the world from our perspective.

How Much Does a Discovery Flight Cost?

We value transparency at Red Arrow Flight Academy and offer the following rates for our discovery and recreational flight options. These prices are tied to the fuel and maintenance costs required to take you up. It is our goal to make flight as accessible as possible to our communities in Texas and New Mexico.
