The instructor was good, but when they moved locations, it was impossible to contact them. Also, they charged an extra $50 for gas beyond the Groupon.

The flight instructor was course and unclear on when the student could take control.

These folks were fabulous. Worked with us to pick the most beautiful day, let my husband at the controls; landed and took off several times. Very friendly folks.

The training pilot Chris is a good teacher. The flight was beautiful. (An office secretary would be nice.)

My son's instructor, Chris, was excellent! He was thorough about going through the check list before the flight, going through each item in the cockpit and walking around the exterior of the plane. Nik got a full hour of flight time and even got to try steep turns! Thank you so much, Chris! You made Nik's birthday present (the intro lesson) memorable!

They said on the deal that I could bring 2 observers and when I got there only one of my guests was allowed in the plane with me. Also, when I called anwent to visit initially, they described the experience as if was going to learn certain things while on the ground and then we would fly. But also take off and land several times. That's not what happened. The guy ran through the plane check real quick, we got on the plane, and took off. In the air I was allowed to pilot a bit and then we came back. That was it. Plus the plane was very old, nothing that compared to the one on the picture on groupon. My friend that had to stay behind asked the other flight school that shares the same building if he could fly. He did take off and land several times and learned a bunch of things that I never heard about, and flew a much nicer plane. And he paid less than the groupon. I feel I was short changed.

From Our Editors

A.T.C. Flight Training Center has guided fledgling pilots through the skies with FAA-certified instruction since 1991, emphasizing good judgment, quick decision making, and practical skill. With approval from the Secret Service and FBI, and permission slips signed by their mothers, the seasoned instructors teach their flight courses in an airborne classroom high above the Potomac River. They lay out a clear path for students to earn FAA private-pilot certification through classroom lectures, hands-on flight instruction, and the Jeppesen ground and flight syllabus. Flight lessons aboard the center's two Cessna 172 planes cover basic flight techniques, such as fending off territorial weather balloons, before moving on to jaunts to other airports, night flying, and more advanced skills.

Already experienced pilots can instead embark on leisurely trips in a Cessna 182, outfitted with GPS navigation and autopilot. At the center's shop, staffers further outfit pilots with headsets, charts, and approach plates, as well as ASA training materials, aviation books, and films about flight.
