20 minutes of ground training is included with all options, during which time instructors will go over the principles of flight and the functions of all movable services of the aircraft, such as flaps, ailerons, and propellor. During the flight session, instruction covers take-off, straight and level flight, climb, descents, level offs, medium banked turn in both directions, and landing.
For the second option, although both participants may receive on-the-ground training, only one person (the pilot) will be able to operate the plane with guidance from the instructor. The other student enjoys the flight as a passenger in the back seat.

Casual fliers can visit the 35,000-square-foot facility for introductory discovery flights and aerial tours soaring 1,500 feet over notable Bay Area landmarks.
