This learn to fly a Cessna experience in New Jersey is a wonderful gift for anyone who has a desire to fly!
When you arrive for your flight, a FAA Certified Flight Instructor will escort you to your plane and demonstrate the pre-flight inspection where the fuel, oil, and airplane are inspected to determine airworthiness.
The whole idea of this introductory flight lesson is to get the participant to do as much as possible. This lesson is not to be confused with an "airplane ride" where one passively watches someone else do the work.
After the pre-flight inspection, it's time to hop in the pilot's seat and take the controls. Your certified instructor will be sitting next to you, guiding you through the motions, but you'll do most of the flying.
During this flight lesson, you will experience all different aspects of flight, have a great time, and learn enough to decide whether you want to continue learning to fly and pursue a pilots license.

"Thanks for making a dream come true to the boys at the airport!"
"I cannot say enough great things about my flight instructor. I was very eager to learn, and he indulged me with everything I wanted to know and more. I learned so much from just talking to him. Better yet, he was an amazing flight instructor. He gave me all the confidence I needed but also made sure to relay any adjustments to me, so I could improve my flying. I did so much more than I thought I would do. We did 4 takeoffs and landings, and I even got to call the control tower for our takeoffs! First, my instructor let me feel the controls of the plane as we landed it together, and then I was able to land it myself (as well as take off, turn, etc.). I really cannot say enough about how wonderful the flight instructor was. "
"Got the flight lesson as a birthday gift from my wife. Wow, what a great experience! My instructor was friendly and knowledgeable. Because of this, I am planning on going for my pilot's license. I would highly recommend this as a gift for anyone thinking of getting their feet wet in aviation, or for the excitement of flying a real plane."
