Twin Cities Aviation
Anoka County Airport
8891 Airport Rd. NE
- Flights begin with a one-on-one conversation with an FAA-certified instructor about your level of experience and expectations for the flight; these can be tailored to be a true intro lesson or a casual scenic flight. Then students will do a preflight check, climb into the pilot's seat and take off. These flights include more time in the air than the standard intro flights, with flight duration depending on factors like airport traffic and taxiing time. The full experience lasts over an hour with no less than a half-hour of actual flight time.
- Flyers will learn to start the aircraft, taxi the plane, take off, fly and approach the runway then land with the help of their instructor. Flights are available seven days a week from sunrise to sunset, and additional passengers can ride along for an additional fee (payable directly to Twin Cities Aviation).
