Had a great experience. Cat was a great teacher and I would ask for her if you are going up for the 1st time.

It was a great experience -wear thin loose clothing in the hot weather as it gets warm inside the plane.

Some days may be too windy to fly in a small plane for those who are not accustomed to it.. . .be flexible in scheduling. Everything was great and I had a great time!!!

First, I must say everybody I met at Downtown Aviation was pleasant and competent. Still, they seemed not to care if they ever saw me again. My instructor took me straight to the aircraft (Cessna 172) and after a thorough walk-around, off we went for a short ride over Arkansas at 1200 feet. All pretty perfunctory. Perhaps I just wasn't a good fit for this Groupon. I earned my pilot's license 40 years ago, but I quit flying after about five years, so obviously I am not a qualified pilot today. All I really wanted was to practice flying, but my instructor hardly ever took his hand off the controls. Can't blame him, I guess, but I was disappointed.

The service was excellent!!! Great bang for your buck, if you're interested in flying, one trip here will solidify the idea in your head. CFI Corey Franks was great. I recommend that you check them out!!!!

From Our Editors

There are no roads in the sky—just clouds and the floating mansions of America's billionaires. Similarly, Downtown Aviation's flying lessons don't follow one set pathway to pilot certification. Using FAA-approved materials, the school's certified flight instructors can teach a fast-paced course or follow a more casual lesson plan. But the endpoint remains the same: a student, private, or sport certificate.

One of the most exciting moments during training occurs approximately 20–25 hours into instruction, when students take the controls for their first solo flight. As they soar over Memphis or Olive Branch, taking in bird's eye views through the cockpit windshield, some may feel inspired to pursue flying as a career. Luckily, they won't have to look for a new school. Downtown Aviation's faculty trains pilots for their commercial certificates and airline transport pilot licenses. The staff can also maintain pilots' aircrafts at their Cessna-certified service center.
