Introductory flight experiences equip novice fliers with the tools to take the steering column of a Cessna 172 while an FAA-certified instructor oversees. The experience begins with ground instruction and a preflight check to make sure that all aircraft components are in proper working order. Once airborne, the student may take the controls while a camera rolls, capturing the experience on film to show off to friends and family. Students receive a flight certificate and can enter the time spent aloft into their new logbook.

Noble AirVentures LLC

The licensed instructors at Noble AirVentures LLC build bridges into the sky for aspiring aviators through programs that range from introductory flights to pilot-certification courses. Students learn to confidently take off, land, and bank at the helm of a Cessna 172 aircraft, each carrying modern avionics equipment and rigorously inspected to exceed FAA safety standards. When not teaching new generations of pilots, the team takes passengers aloft on photo flights, which give professional and amateur photographers the chance to capture images of the Boston skyline and Fenway Park or produce an accurate answer key to this year's corn maze.
