We Took a Discovery Flight with Mike Bianchi!
L3 Airline Academy had the pleasure of hosting sports columnist and radio personality, Mike Bianchi. You may be familiar with him through his sports column in the Orlando Sentinel, or you may have heard him on various radio shows. It was a beautiful day in Sanford as he toured the L3 Airline Academycampus and then took to the skies for a Discovery Flight.
The Discovery Flight provides a glimpse into the basics of flight. Mike began by learning in a simulator and then got in the cockpit of a Cirrus SR20 with an L3 Airline AcademyFlight Instructor! Their discovery flight took them 3,000 feet in the air, taking off from Sanford International Airport, going over downtown Orlando and Walt Disney World. Before returning to L3 Airline Academycampus, they took a quick trip out to the East Coast to get amazing views of Florida’s beautiful beaches.
Excited to learn the ropes of flying, Bianchi was ready and willing to hop into the cockpit and fly like a pro! With beautiful bird’s eye view scenery, the experience was surely one he will not forget.
Along with his background in journalism, Bianchi hosts a weekly morning radio show in Orlando, Open Mike on 740 The Game. You can also hear him on 101.1 WJRR or follow him on Twitter. For more about Aerosim’s Discovery Flight program and how you can become a pilot, contact us today.
