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!

"We bought this experience for our Dad. He had a fabulous experience. The pilot, Juan was outstanding in his professionalism and communication. Now my sons want to book a flight! Thank you Cloud 9 and Juan! Janet Ward"
"My sister had me tag along on her bucket list quest to fly a plane. I signed up too and we did our sessions together. After a brief office lesson, Juan took us up for an unforgettable experience! My sister flew first, taking off from Dallas Executive Airport in south Dallas. After the allotted time, we landed at Lancaster Regional where she and I switched seats and I took a shot at the controls. Flying a small plane can definitely rock your stomach and head, but Juan was great about letting us do what was comfortable. You can do as many maneuvers as you like, or just cruise along and enjoy the view. No pressure, beautiful weather, great experience!!! Juan was an awesome instructor. "
