Service Overview

Your experience will start with an introduction to the essentials of flying with an experienced instructor. He or she will teach you the basics of flying an airplane, review the cockpit controls, and explain how they affect the aircraft’s flight. After that, you’ll prepare for your flight. Your instructor will show you how to perform the pre-flight safety inspection, and you will be ready for takeoff! When the aircraft has reached a safe altitude, the instructor will give you control of the aircraft, and you will fly the airplane yourself and experience the true thrill of piloting a plane– your instructor will handle takeoff and landing. 2 hours of professional flight instruction (including 1 hour aircraft flight time). Take the controls of the aircraft once at a safe altitude and fly the plane yourself. See the majestic views of the San Francisco Bay – from the front seat.
