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.
