Flying a plane experience: Guest Reviews
“In spite of my nervousness the pilot coached my through a few climbs, descents and turns and showed me how to trim the tabs to get a feeling for how the plane responded to each. How exhilarating!”Jerryk883
“Our pilot/teacher was great, he made the experience very fun and took the nerves away 100%. This was a surprise gift and the person who was going to do the flying was extremely nervous and unsure, he made the situation light and casual, she ended up loving the experience.”Arielh115
