One of AAFI's certified commercial pilots invites couples into the cockpit of his aircraft before climbing into the sky for a bird's eye view of Candlewood Lake as the sun recedes into the horizon. Once the plane reaches high altitudes, passengers direct their gaze downward to catch a glimpse of Earth from the clouds and see infant-delivery storks in action. Clients can schedule their flights any day of the week and should call ahead to make an appointment.

Affordable Aircraft & Flight Instruction, LLC

Unlike swimming, nobody learns to fly by being thrown in the deep end. Instead, it takes gradual instruction to teach students the controls and feel of an aircraft guided by their hands. Luckily, instructors Antonio Ferrara and Zachary Barrett specialize in that sort of slow-burning scholarship. Both men make their living with their heads in the clouds. Ferrara flies for a commercial airline, ferrying passengers across vast distances in enormous jets. Barrett also possesses his commercial pilot's license, along with an FAA Flight Instructor certification.

At Affordable Aircraft & Flight Instruction, LLC, the duo helps fledgling flyers find their sky legs with discovery flights and group ground school. They also teach longer courses, guiding students toward certifications as private-, multiengine-, and commercial-rated pilots.

Great experience. Great instructor. If u r serious it s good to check a flight simulator online so u have an idea about the equipments. Just a 15 mins video will do. again it was a great experience.

After leaving a message to make an appointment for a flight lesson, it took 2 weeks for someone to return my call. Other than that, everyone was very professional and friendly. The flight was amazing and the instructor does a great job teaching!
