Fun Flight: The Recreational Side of Flying

Some people dream of dominating the speedway while for others it is all about conquering the skies. And while learning to fly is a worthwhile endeavor, for some folks, it can be a very time-consuming and even resource-draining activity.

But those who really want to pursue their love of flying have other means to parlay their passion. Even without professional training, they can soar to great heights via recreational flying. Many companies, such as North Star Aviation in Mankato, MN, offer a recreational flying program to those who are interested in learning to fly, and eventually, earn their wings. For instance, at North Star Aviation, flight training begins with an introductory flight lesson, which usually lasts about an hour and includes a detailed preflight briefing with the instructor and a half-hour flight where the student can get hands on the controls, be shown some maneuvers, and ask as many questions about flying.

Meanwhile, for those who are content with the view from above as a passenger, North Star Aviation also offers scenic flights. Passengers can marvel at the beauty of Southern Minnesota or see the Minnesota River Valley. For couples who want to bring their love to the next (and higher) level, North Star Aviation also offers romantic flights. City sightseeing from thousands of feet above ground is also possible.

Indeed, there is no shortage of opportunities to those who dream of flying a plane. Whether dreaming of commanding a commercial jet or just cruising on a light aircraft, learning to fly can be more fulfilling than one can truly imagine.
