$149 for a Two-Hour Flight Lesson ($298 Value)
Lasting approximately two hours, this introductory package includes a 30-minute ground lesson, a 30-minute simulator session, and 40 minutes in flight at the tiller of a Cessna aircraft. Students can choose between a day- or night-time flight and will take home a logbook and a certificate of achievement. They can also chronicle their experience by bringing a camera and snapping photos as they soar across the sky.
The FAA-certified flight instructors at California Airways offer something for aspiring fliers of all ages with pilot certification programs, high-school summer camps, and birthday parties for smaller children. No matter what their experience level is, guests of legal age can handle the rudders of not only the business’s simulators but also its Cessna airplanes. Joining the California Airways club allows license-carrying pilots to rent these aircraft, provided they know the proper levitation incantations.
