Kevin Coffrin, Vermont Flight Academy: How To Fly A Plane - Summer School

Ever wondered what it's like to pilot your very own plane? For the next installment of Vermont Edition's Summer School series, we hop into a Cessna 150 for a flying lesson with Kevin Coffrin, an instructor at the Vermont Flight Academy.

It can cost between $8,000 and $10,000 to become a certified pilot, so we opted for a basic Discovery Flight — an introductory ground lesson and a one-hour flight with tutorials in basic flight controls, including turning, ascending and descending. Oh, and spectacular views of the Lake Champlain, the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks.
