Start with 20 minutes of ground instruction that will cover the mechanics and functions of the plane and its controls. Then, experience 40 minutes of fly time in a Cessna 172 aircraft and practice the four fundamentals of flight -- climbs, turns, descents and straight and level flight -- while taking in views of the bay and downtown D.C. Aspiring pilots can log the flight time to put toward a pilot's license.

Besides being able to fly a plane, I really enjoyed the people there. Everyone is extremely friendly and informative. It is also a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere that still feels professional.

This was my second time using a voucher with Freeway Aviation, and I hope I have the opportunity to use another. Flying is fun but pretty expensive without the deal.

The fantastic views from the plane.

Anyone wanting to learn to fly should go to Freeway Aviation

I enjoyed the freedom of flying the plane. John, my instructor, immediately handed over the control to me as soon as we were safely in the air. I wasn't nervous, and I saw beautful sights that you can only appreciate from that high in the sky. John answered all questions I posed to him.
