Oakland Flyers

Oakland Flyers organizes aerial endeavors with flight lessons and club plane rentals to keep their customers airborne. Since 1989, its team of instructors has trained amateurs in basic flight techniques with on the ground and in-air lessons that lead to professional pilot qualifications. Pilots and students can take to the skies and practice scribbling their initials in the clouds in Cessna, Piper, and Bellanca airplanes as they gain hours toward private pilot, instrument, commercial, and flight-instructor ratings. An on-site pilot-supplies shop also keeps patrons prepared with books, charts, and limited avionics.

Reviews

Went there for an intro flight training/tour and found the folks there to be very professional and accommodating.
