What fun! Jaspreet patiently explained the workings of the aircraft, both inside and out. We did a tour over the Bay and it was a gorgeous day so I got some great pictures. I had the controls as we flew over the Golden Gate Bridge! Good times, highly recommend.

My flight instructor was very nice but professional. I liked how they let me be so "hands on" with the aircraft.
