I was a little disappointed that I didnt get to fly the plane as I thouht I would. I was only allowed to take off. It was fun and Scott was great. Just had hoped for more.

Very courteous and professional organization. Staff is highly qualified and knowledgable. Will continue to use services even though other providers are closer.

Overall, a worthwhile endeavor, but a bit over-hyped, in my estimation. Obviously, the "90-minute" adventure includes significant ground time, but even with the pre-flight and post-flight briefs, we were out of there about 80 minutes after arrival. Total time in the air was 23 minutes, and the aerobatics consisted of one (!) vertical loop and a couple of stalls (which don't qualify). Still, the pilot/instructor was friendly, knowledgeable, and highly qualified, and he provided our student pilot son with some solid instruction and stick time, so for us, it was still a good deal. But if you're looking to get wrung out from air-show style aerobatics, you might be disappointed.

From Our Editors

The sky above the Coachella Valley is often sunny and clear. The cloudless conditions make it easy to pick out a small aircraft as it materializes out of a mountain range on the horizon, then corkscrews and performs a grand loop-the-loop before heading home to the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport. The shiny blue Citabria plane is the resident aerobatic aircraft at JacksonAir Flight Training. The company's owner, Scott Mourhess, who dreamed of G-forces and airborne antics as a little boy, now oversees a fleet of no fewer than six aircraft used to train commercial and private pilots.

Scott and his fellow FAA-certified flying instructors occupy prime aviation real estate. The skies above their Thermal airport often draw pilots from other flight schools in the Palm Springs region, who flock to the area for the ideal practice conditions and absence of lines at sky tollbooths. The veteran instructors also take novice pilots on 20- to 30-minute flights that introduce them to the excitement being in a cockpit and the thrill of flying.
