It was wonderful to control the flight!! And the sight was so nice!! The instructor was very polite and knowledgable too.

The entire flight experience was good. Nick Saxon was an awesome instructor.

The initial scheduled flight lacked adequate communication as our instructor was informed about one hour prior to our appointment. We were already en route to the location when we received the call to reschedule. Otherwise, excellent experience.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. No problems at all with scheduling my flight experience and the airport in Newnan is right off I-85 at exit 41.

This facility has a lot of different aircraft due to the fact that Falcon Aviation is I full service pilot training school. While I was there I notices they train a lot of pilots from China going into commercial aviation. I see this as being a good aviation school for anyone wishing to get their private license.

Falcon Aviation is truly a professional organization. First, we were met at the door by our flight instructor.By the way, he was dressed in a professional uniform. He gave us a cursory tour of the academy. The facility was very clean and modern. We went out to the aircraft and he walked us around for our preflight. The aircraft interior was awesome with the glass cockpit as we were told to call it. The flight was a little bumpy due to high winds. HOwever, Chris gave us a wonderful experiance during our flight. We truly enjoyed our flying experiance. My coworkers wanted to know if the voucher would be offered again. HInt Travelzoo. Thank You Falcon Aviation.

I would probably add a few minutes with the flight simulator as an introduction to the real thing.
