The pilot was very relaxed with the process and answered all my questions even after I asked him 2 or 3 times.

Definitely something to do again

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.
