$199 for an Introductory Flight Lesson ($400 Value)

An FAA-certified instructor walks pupils through a pre-flight checklist before both enter the cockpit. Then, students taxi to the runway and observe as the instructor guides the plane through takeoff. Once 500 feet in the air, the instructor hands over the controls, overseeing students as they climb, turn, and descend. The aircraft's windows remain open while soaring above Long Island's sprawling beaches and the giant water slide in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The 75-minute lesson also includes a logbook, a New York aeronautical chart, a T-shirt, one ticket to the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport, and a six-month subscription to Flight Training Magazine.

Nassau Flyers

The FAA-certified instructors at Nassau Flyers have helped countless students obtain pilot licenses since 1976. Today, their rental fleet still roars to life, lifts off from Republic Airport, and soars into the skies above Long Island's shorelines and New York City's iconic skyline. Nestled within the likes of a Cessna 152 or a Piper Cruiser PA28-140, the instructors let students take the controls during their very first lesson, and then guide them all the way to FAA licensure.

The ground school complements this in-air training with classroom work and simulator time. Their Redbird FMX full-motion simulator wraps students in a fully enclosed cockpit and lets them practice various scenarios. When not training the next generation of pilots, Nassau Flyers' staff is often in the hanger maintaining aircrafts or anxiously awaiting the new Wilbur Wright action figure to put in their pilot shop.
