What's included

  • The introductory lesson begins with a 45-minute preflight briefing at Boeing Field, where you will receive instructions on how to use the controls and read the flight instruments. Then, the plane will taxi to the runway and take to the skies; the instructor will cover the ins and outs of takeoff, turns, climbs, descents and landing, with 50-60 minutes in the air.
  • Choose a private lesson or bring up to two friends to ride along at no additional cost. Take home an official pilot logbook at the end of your lesson, which counts as flight time toward becoming an FAA-certified pilot.
  • You can also upgrade to the Learn-to-Fly Introductory Package that includes 50 hours of ground-school training with loaner course materials; four hours of Cessna 172 rental; all preflight, in-flight and postflight instruction; and Wings Aloft student membership with two months' dues for $1195 (reg. $2395).

It is extremely hard to get a hold of these people. I had to contact Travelzoo to contact Wings Aloft to contact me since they would not pick up calls, return messages, or reply via email. Then after I finally scheduled my flight they forgot to mark it down and when I got there they had no record of me! Really really God aweful organization or scheduling system/personnel. I did end up getting a flight though and it was amazing, the instructor was great and the experience was incredible.

The trip was great. The pilot was very helpful, accomodating, and professional.

We had a long wait for the flight to leave. No explanation as to why.
