$150 for a Two-Hour Flying Lesson ($310 Total Value)

  • 30-minute simulator session (a $60 value)
  • One hour of ground instruction (a $45 value)
  • One hour of flight training and instruction, including a 40-minute flying session (a $205 value)
  • Complimentary first flight certificate with a photo

In two hours, novices transform into pilots under the tutelage of FAA-certified instructors. After a combination of studying and simulator practice on the ground, the class takes off into the air with the student as the copilot. There are no age limits for passengers, but small children must sit in a child safety seat brought from home. Up to two friends may join as passengers, taking in sweeping views of the Bay Area and harmonizing to "Danger Zone," for an additional fee of $40 per person.

Hayward Flight

On a sunny afternoon, a small plane speeds down a runway and takes to the sky, its occupants gazing down at the streets of San Francisco, sailboats speeding through the bay, and the coppery sails of the Golden Gate Bridge. A small tour group or a student pilot sits in the belly of the plane, marveling at the thrill of flight.

Hayward Flight’s staff of FAA-certified instructors and pilots shares that experience with everyone—from young children to aspiring airline pilots—during scenic tours and private plane rentals. Pilot training classes emphasize sophisticated simulator practice and in-air flight, and students can earn private and commercial pilot licenses behind the controls of the Hayward’s fleet of Cessna aircraft and domesticated dragons.

    “Ask for Rick - sweetest guy with a very focused, calming vibe, which is what you want when flying a plane! Book early if you want a weekend lesson and be aware the air time is only about 20-25 minutes, but feels much longer when you're the pilot. I look forward to trying their bay tour for a different perspective of beautiful SF! ”
