The experience

Loved it

Aug 27, 2014 4282 CA, United States

What was specified in the deal, was not applied in my flight lesson!

The instructor was personable.

The experience and the instructor.

What a fantastic experience! I highly recommend it. Cary, my instructor, was so great--super calm but fun and makes you feel totally comfortable. Flying is such a rush and a new perspective on LA.

Obviously the flight itself. But Cary, which happens is the owner made that whole experience even better.

I did originally purchased Long Beach flight but while on board I did extended for a Around LA. It was worth every penny.
