"Mauricio at the flight school was great. He explained everything that we were going to do. My 15 year old grandson was given control of the airplane shortly after take-off. He was allowed to fly most of the entire time. The instructor was great in giving direction on course correction when needed. The day was beautiful, we could see for several miles. Great great experience. My grandson will always remember when he got to fly an airplane. Highly recommend it. "
"It was a fantastic experience!"
"Thanks Joel (pilot)! It was truly a memorable experience and I'd love to do it again."
