$149 for a Two-Hour Introductory Flight Lesson ($395 Value)

Instructors guide students through piloting basics on one of the facility’s flight simulators, which helps them learn how to handle the controls and perform basic flight tasks. Instructor and student then go through a quick weather briefing before making a flight plan. Finally, students take to the sky for 60 minutes in the cockpit of Cessna aircraft, first to watch the instructor demonstrate basic flight maneuvers, then to take the controls themselves while savoring the view of the city from above. Students may bring one additional person at no extra charge.

American Flyers

Though most kids dream of one day being a pilot, very few ever get a chance behind the cockpit. The team at American Flyers seeks to change that by training students to obtain a pilot’s license or merely try out their skills in an introductory lesson. The flight schools’ numerous locations feature flight-training software, online courses, and pigeon mentors to grant students numerous ways to learn how to fly.
