    Discover the joy of flying with this introductory flight lesson. Soar above the South Florida skyline taking in spectacular views of Hollywood Beach, Golden Beach and Sunny Isles.

    You'll start with a pre-flight inspection of the airplane with your instructor, then climb on board with your instructor and taxi the airplane to the runway. Your instructor will teach you about the basic controls of the aircraft, and how to properly maneuver and fly the plane.

    Next it's time to take off and enjoy the most exhilarating part - flying! You'll do most of the flying yourself, with your instructor by your side making sure you feel comfortable every step of the way.

    Whether you're in South Florida for a visit or are a long-time local, this is the perfect way to create a memory that will last a lifetime.

    So prepare for an unforgettable experience, and come learn to fly!
