"Everyone connected with this experience was very helpful and pleasant. I had to reschedule and there was no problem. Rich Gross was the flight instructor and he spent extra time explaining all the controls and procedures. All in all it was a great flight. If anyone would like to get the feel of flying a plane yourself, this is the place to go."

"My 12-year-old son absolutely loved his Learn to Fly experience. I had no idea that he would be able to take off and land multiple times, the pilot even taught him how to handle emergency situations; Steve really let my son feel he was in control. It has totally ignited a love for flying in my son, who now wants to continue on and get his pilot's license. "
