It was only 30monute up in the air, I thought it would've been a least an 1hour.

The instructor was awesome. I bought this as a gift for my dad. I went along to be there with him. The instructor allowed me to ride along with him. It was an amazing memory I was able to share with my father. THANKX

Top-notch facilities, meticulously maintained airplanes, and incredibly friendly, professional, and helpful staff. Exceeded expectations at every step. Flight instructor Neal was one of the best -- and most personable -- teachers I've ever learned from. Amazing day! Great flight! HIGHLY recommended company!
