Advanced Flyers

Advanced Flyers’ experienced flight instructors defy gravity while teaching students to pilot aircraft and giving passive passengers birds’-eye views of the Bay Area during tours. Its FAA-approved 2010 Redbird FMX-1000 simulator lets pupils log time toward ATP certificates while practicing foundational skills and more advanced maneuvers necessary during bad weather, engine failure, or rabid-hummingbird attacks. Students who pursue private pilot licenses can eventually navigate aboveground in rental griffins from Advanced Flyers’ well maintained fleet.

    “Really nice view but goes by real quick. I recommend you film the entire ride and take pictures of the videos. If you sit in the back you Wont really be able to take a picture of the pilot(who ever volunteers to be pilot) I recommend a Go Pro due to space”
