WEST JORDAN, Utah - Have you ever wanted to fly a plane?

One flight school in West Jordan is offering flight-discovery lessons where you can get behind the controls on day one.

"You can actually come out your first lesson, you can fly the airplane that day," said Randon Russell, owner / flight instructor at Randon Aviation.

Fox 13's Big Budah went to see what it's all about. (Scroll down to watch Budah's flight over the Salt Lake Valley.)

Russell taught Budah the basics, and then let Budah behind the controls of the plane.

Flight-discovery lessons range in 30 to 60 minute flights, and prices vary. Russell said their customers come from a wide variety of backgrounds.

"We have a mixture of both students who want to go to the airlines and become airline pilots, and then we've got those that have it on a bucket list and they want just get it because they've wanted to," Russell said. "Some people are business owners and they want to get a plane so they can fly around the state to their local businesses. So we have a mixture of those three students."

Randon Aviation is located at 7220 S. 4450 West, West Jordan.
