Description:
Looking for the gift that will be cherished for a lifetime? Look no more. Our Learn to Fly experience is the perfect gift for anyone in your life who has always dreamed of flying.

Discover the joy of flying with this introductory flight lesson. Soar above the Dallas skyline, as you take in the scenery and actually get the chance to fly the plane.

You'll start with a preflight inspection of the airplane with your instructor, then climb on board with your instructor and taxi the airplane to the runway. Your instructor will teach you about the basic controls of the aircraft, and how to properly maneuver and fly the plane.

Next it's time to take off and enjoy the most exhilarating part - flying! You'll do most of the flying yourself, with your instructor by your side making sure you feel comfortable every step of the way.

Spend either 30 or 60 minutes of flight time depending on which option you select. With the 60 minute flight, you'll have extra time to sight-see or practice additional maneuvers like steep turns or landings.

So prepare for an unforgettable experience, and come learn to fly!

"This was amazing!! My husband had the best time. The instuctor Juan was just fantastic!!!! I would recommend this to anyone I can. The 1 hour flight was worth it, I dont think the 30 minutes would have been enough. "

"I was presented this gift by my daughter for the Father's Day. This was a very good experience and would last me a life time. The gift was for 30mins but I learned that in order to really enjoy the experience, it needs to be 1hr (which I bought with additional cost). The plane was good, and if you are doing it in summer then you might find it very hot inside the plane when you go up as there is no AC, and it should not be expected to have one either. My Pilot was Juan and he was good with is communication and flying skills and made me safe and was willing to let me have the experience of flying as I liked and what I was comfortable with but always keeping the flying safe including when I wanted to try and lend (which is one of the most difficult and dangerous flying.
