"I surprised my husband with an hour flight around downtown Nashville. We had a great time! Our pilot was extremely friendly and made us feel very comfortable, as he was very knowledgeable about everything. We would definitely do this again, and have already suggested for our friends to give it a try! "
"I just want to to say thank you for making my boyfriend's birthday that much better. We had a wonderful time. It was my first time ever being in a plane, and [the pilot] made me feel comfortable and explained everything to us that he was doing. This is a great place to experience flying. Thank you to our pilot (I cant remember his name, probably because I was terrified at first when he told us) but he was great. Thank you again to the aviation school for making this birthday a great one."
"I made it to the airfield earlier than I expected and met Tanner, who was an awesome pilot. He went over everything with me about the plane on the ground, and then asked if I was ready to go. I said I am ready, and we were off. Once in the air, he let me control the plane for the majority of the hour-long flight and even showed me a couple of neat things the plane could do. He was friendly, with light humor that made the entire experience a complete enjoyment. I would highly recommend going up with him any time, and I hope to do something like this again soon, or even more flying beyond the experience. It made for one of the best times I have had in a very long time for sure!"
