Intro Flights and Gift Certificates

Interested in the club, but don’t want to commit to membership just yet? We offer three intro flights outside of membership. You may do intro flights in any of our airplanes. The intro flights cost the normal hourly rate for the aircraft, and instructor. These flights can be logged as flight training! Reach out to us to learn more and schedule your experience!

Coastal City Aviation also offers gift certificates. We will issue a gift certificate to you for the amount you choose to purchase. The gift certificates are issued for the value that you specify, so if you would like to buy an hour of flight, we will issue you a gift certificate for the cost it takes to rent. These gift certificates do not expire. Contact us to learn more!
