To whom this may concern, I wanted to let you know about my recent experience at US Aviators I purchased the following Groupon several months ago for my boyfriend’s birthday in October: The description on the Groupon was as follows: 30 minute ground lesson 30 minutes of simulator time 30 minutes of air time I also paid the extra $99 to extend the air time from 30 minutes to 60 minutes I called ahead of time and made the reservation without any problems On October 24th we showed up for the flight experience When we arrived we were greeted by someone very friendly and we were told our pilot Steve would be with us soon When Steve arrived he escorted us to the back room where my boyfriend began the simulator training The simulator training lasted approximately 30 minutes Those 30 minutes included some short videos he watched previously to do the simulator training After that, we walked with Steve down to the runway and got into the plane We were in the air less than 30 minutes when the pilot told my boyfriend that he was going to take over and do the landing I reminded the pilot that I paid for the extended time and he said “yea we should be about at an hour when we land” So I didn’t say anything else the reminder of the flight When we landed I asked him why we only had a total of 30 minutes in the air He replied “the time we spent Taxiing counts too” So I said “ok, well that takes the total to 40 minutes” To which he replied “It’s a total of 45 minutes by my watch” I was and still am extremely mad If I am paying an additional $99 for the extra half hour, I expect the full half hour Not to mention, where was the 30 minutes of ground training? The pilot had the worst attitude and did not make the experience enjoyable at all It was bad enough that this was a birthday gift and the pilot was unfriendly, but on top of that I feel that I was taken advantage of by paying the extra money and not getting the full time My boyfriend and I were only physically in the plane for 40 minutes (45 if you are going by the pilots watch) I double checked the time stamps on the photos I took and I am correct with my timing The only reason I made the decision to go with your company for this experience is because I had friends that previously flew with you and they all had wonderful things to say I am contacting you directly in hopes that you can somehow remedy this bad experience Regards, Jennifer

From Our Editors

The highly trained instructors at U.S. Aviators imbue students with the aviation know-how necessary to earn ratings from private and commercial pilot licenses to instrument ratings and instructor certification. To prepare pupils for their skyward excursions, the teaching team simulates flights with a touch-screen multi-aircraft flight simulator, which replicates real-life scenario-based training with wrap-around visuals and single- or multi-engine configurations. From there, students hone their aerial skills with U.S. Aviators' fleet of Cessnas, Pipers, and an American Champion Decathlon, named for the event it won by flying over its opponents. Along with hands-on experience, U.S. Aviators supplies budding pilots with necessary gear such as terminal charts, mechanic tools, and sunglasses at its fully stocked shop.
