It was a really cool experience and I have a newfound respect for pilots

The pilot was very accommodating as I gifted the Groupon to my parents. However, on the site they mentioned that they can have 3 people but the pilot won't allow it because of weight limitations. The person who made the reservations did not communicate properly to the pilot. Not a big deal but created confusion at the time

I bought this Groupon as a birthday present for my boyfriend and we ended up waiting over two hours for the flight lesson, so we missed our reservation for dinner in the city that evening. We had Howard as a flight instructor, and he was nice but his answers to our questions if he had any were brief and uninspiring. Good location but I would not recommend this company for flying lessons at all!

I bought this Groupon as a birthday gift for my husband. He's wanted to fly a plane since he was a child but never got around to it. He loved it! Advanced Flyers was very responsive in setting up our visit, and the whole experience was great. From the professionalism of the flight instructor to the kindness and consideration of the staff, we would highly recommend Advanced Flyers.

Terrible terrible service. I paid for 2 hours of flight time per the groupon where options were to fly over SF or down to Monterey. We were told two people could fly as well. When we get there it's changed to just one person could fly. We accepted that still hoping to get a good amount of flying in. The training took longer than expected but still was about 25 mins. We got in the plane and went up. Flew from the airport which is off 101, flew to 280 and back. Total airtime around 10 mins including taxing. Our appointment was at 230pm which means that two goes would be done at 430. With the training and flight time we were back in the office at 307pm. This groupon cost $200 and was not worth it. I have called and emailed the manager multiple times trying to get an understanding but have yet to hear anything back. I do not recommend this place to anyone, ever.

This was a really great experience. They don't try to up-sell you, or try to get you to sign up for classes or anything. Really laid-back environment and I felt like I learned a lot!

Really nice view but goes by real quick. I recommend you film the entire ride and take pictures of the videos. If you sit in the back you Wont really be able to take a picture of the pilot(who ever volunteers to be pilot) I recommend a Go Pro due to space

From Our Editors

Advanced Flyers' experienced flight instructors defy gravity while teaching students to pilot aircraft and giving passive passengers birds'-eye views of the Bay Area. Its FAA-approved Redbird FMX-1000 simulator lets pupils log time toward ATP certificates while practicing foundational skills and more advanced maneuvers necessary during bad weather, engine failure, or rabid-hummingbird attacks. Students who pursue private pilot licenses can eventually navigate aboveground in rental griffins from Advanced Flyers' well maintained fleet.
