Skyview Aviation's pod of professional pilots takes the helm to ready aspiring stratospherians for flight. The 30-minute introductory flight puts you in a safe and reliable Cessna aircraft, in which a trained instructor will familiarize you with the airport, the aircraft, and the instruments and controls the pilot must manage, all while preventing you from pulling off all your favorite Red Baron maneuvers. While the instructor will take care of the more difficult parts, such as takeoff and landing, the lesson allows you to briefly take control of the plane. For the six months following touchdown, trainees will enjoy a free subscription to Flight Training magazine, a paperback repository of aviatorial tips, tricks, and migration patterns.

The benefits of the heat and movements are plenty. Students can reduce stress, sweat out toxins, increase their strength and flexibility, and tone their bodies.
