More detailed description >

Description:

Sit in the pilot's seat of an airplane, take the controls, and soar high above Seattle on a Learn to Fly experience in a Piper Warrior!

Your hands-on flight lesson will begin with an in-depth ground school where you will learn the basics of controlling the aircraft and perform a pre-flight inspection.

After familiarizing yourself with the aircraft, completing ground school and the pre-flight inspection, it's time to take to the sky!

You'll take the controls of the Piper Warrior for a majority of the flight with your FAA Certified Flight Instructor by your side every step of the way.

After landing, your instructor will enter your flight in an official pilot's logbook which you may keep either as a souvenir of this once in a lifetime experience or as the first logged flight toward your pilot's license.

Choose between 30, 45 or 60 minutes of flight time and take in incredible views that may include downtown Seattle, Mount Rainier, the Space Needle, Snoqualmie Falls, the San Juan Islands and more!

"It started with communicating with a very friendly person about when the actual flight would happen. After we arrived, we got to meet a couple of other very friendly and helpful people including our pilot. He was great. He taught us a lot about the plane, and he told stories of his flying experiences. He took us across the water to get a great view of where my house is, and we also flew over my school. Got a great view of Seattle and he made my first flight experience an exciting one. I had a smile on my face the entire flight, and that smile stayed long after the flight was done. Cloud 9 Living gave me an unforgettable, unbeatable experience that I will never forget. "

"Had a wonderful time! Julie, our pilot, was friendly, experienced, and knowledgeable. I would recommend this experience to anyone. The only downside was that time seemed to go by very quickly on this exciting experience -- so sign up for a full hour!"
