A Scenic Introductory Flight Lesson in Clearwater Florida is the perfect way for you to experience the majestic views of America’s #1 rated beaches while learning more about these amazing aircraft.  During a 1 hour flight you will likely see many types of marine life including: Dolphins, Sharks, Manatees, Stingrays and Sea Turtles.  As one happy customer said, “WOW, this was better than a tour, I actually got to fly the aircraft!!!”

An FAA Certified Flight Instructor will teach you the basics of trike flying with a hands-on lesson while you surf and soar over breathtaking landscapes in  “the motorcycle of the sky” with its unobstructed views!  We will explain and demonstrate the basics of how a Trike flys and if you are comfortable, once out over the Gulf we will allow you to take the controls under our close supervision.  If not, just relax and enjoy the incredible experience while we demonstrate the aircraft’s amazing performance!

We cater to Thrill-Seekers and Scaredy-Cats alike and will customize your flight accordingly.

We offer several different flights and the longer the flight, the more hands-on your lesson will be and the more you will learn.


  • 20 minute Flight Lesson  – We will fly over Winter’s Home at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Clearwater Marina, Pier 60 and play around over the Gulf above beautiful Clearwater Beach.
  • 40 minute Flight Lesson  – This flight will cover everything in the mini lesson and then we will head North searching for Dolphin’s and Sharks around Caladesi Island, Honeymoon Island and the Northern Sand Bars.
  • 60 minute Flight Lesson  – This flight will cover everything in the mini lesson and then we will head South flying down the coast past Shell Key and John’s Pass to majestic Fort DeSoto and the Skyway Bridge while scouting marine life along the way.
  • 2.5 hr Advanced Flight Lesson  – We will fly South along the coast from Clearwater Beach, past Fort DeSoto, the Skyway Bridge, Ana Maria Island, Sarasota and land at Venice Airport.  Once on the ground, if you feel comfortable I will put you up front in the pilot’s seat and you can fly home with me assisting you from the back (the aircraft has full controls in the back seat).
  • Custom 1/2 Day Extreme Adventure Lesson  – You help plan this flight!  We could head South along the Mansion-lined coast to Fort Meyers, Naples and even the Everglades, North to Cedar key or create your own Dream Flight!
