Such a cool experience! Booked this for my boyfriend's birthday and did the two-person package so we were both able to fly in the same plane...I took pictures while he was in the pilot's seat and vice versa. Such an unforgettable experience, our instructor Seth was super knowledgeable and friendly - he taught us a lot and answered all of our questions. Would recommend this for anyone looking for a unique and thrilling experience!

My Flight Lesson was a bucket-list dream! From the moment I sat in the pilot's seat, I felt like I was living a real-life aviation adventure. The 30 minutes in the airplane went by in a flash as I took control, taxiing on the ground, and soaring through the skies. I chose the flying package for two people, and sharing the experience with a friend wasso cool. If you're looking for an adrenaline-pumping, hands-on flying experience, don't miss out on this opportunity!

I had an absolute blast during my Introductory Flight Lesson! Being in the pilot's seat, feeling the aircraft respond to my commands, and having the FAA-certified instructor there for guidance was an incredible experience. The 30 minutes in the airplane felt like a whirlwind of adventure. I chose the Piper Warrior and was impressed by its performance. If you've ever dreamed of flying, this is the perfect way to take that first step!
