"Plane was small and old looking, but overall experience was great. Pilot was very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease."
"Great experience! My son is thinking about becoming a pilot and this was perfect for him. The trainer was very knowledgeable and friendly, and we first went through a flight check procedure on the ground, then a classroom style session about flying, and then the flight itself. Both my son and I loved it all! The plane we were in seated 4, so I was even able to tag along on the flight itself. My son was able to fly the plane for an hour and absolutely loved the experience. The flight people were great and would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking about flying a plane. How could you not love flying a real plane around Las Vegas?"
"Great experience and flight. I was slightly confused about how the scheduling process worked, but it went smoothly and very quickly. Flight was perfect. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. There was a lot going on in the aircraft, but the instructor let me focus on the primary flight controls and getting a feel for the aircraft while he monitored the aircraft's systems, watched for traffic, and communicated with other aircraft and air traffic control. The instructor was meticulous and had a safety first (and second and third) attitude. The instructor very knowledgeable and adjusted the flight to my somewhat experienced level. As a bonus, it was a perfect day to fly."
