Have you always wondered what it would be like to sit in the pilot's seat of an airplane, take the controls, and soar into the deep blue? This Learn to Fly experience is for you!
Your hands-on flight lesson will begin with a one-hour ground school session where you will learn the basics and prepare for your flight. Your instructor will take you through the preflight inspection and prepare the Cessna for takeoff.
After ground school and preflight inspection, it's time for takeoff!
In the air, you will take the controls and do the majority of the flying with your FAA certified flight instructor with you every step of the way as you take to the sky.
After landing, your instructor will enter your flight in an official pilot's logbook which you may keep either as a souvenir of a once-in-a-lifetime experience or as the beginning of your pilot license training.
Prepare for a memorable experience over Texas Hill Country, and come learn to fly!

"Great experience! Only wish I had done it sooner. "
"This was something on my 'bucket list' of things to do. My husband surprised me a few days before my birthday. I had already scheduled the day off (I make it a practice to never work on my birthday) so when he told me what my gift was, I immediately jumped on Cloud 9 to schedule my lessons. I was afraid with such short notice, I wouldn't be able to fly on my birthday, but Ali was quick to reply and confirmed the date I requested. When I arrived at Genesis, everyone was very nice. Mick, my instructor was super nice and did a great job of walking me through the process. He was very calm which helped my nerves. I was excited and nervous at the same time, so it helped having someone so calm and professional with me. He was very patient and I learned a lot in such a short amount of time. My husband and 8 yr old son ended up flying with us so the whole family had a blast. It was the experience of a life time! I told my son, what other 8 yr can say he circled over our house and school over spring break? I would recommend Genesis to anyone wanting to seek flying lessons and ask for Mick!"
"Mic was a great instructor. I have some experience plying so he was able to adjust to my knowledge level and allow for me to do a more advanced flight instead of starting from square one. I really enjoyed this flight. Thank you !"
