$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.

California Airways

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.

Customer Reviews

My husband, son and daughter had a blast! It was a day they'll always remember... and they're ready to go back.
Lori K. · July 6, 2013
Victor Navarro was a great firs-time instructor, with whom I had the flight on 5/12/2013. "Ben" was very good in putting me through the simulator. The costs of aircraft rental are very high. So, if there is a way California Airways could offer a package bundle for say, 20 flights of 1-hour each, with a good discount, this will motivate a lot of student flyers like me. Also, simulators are a wonderful way to correct learning mistakes. They are very safe, and they do give an authentic flying experience. California Airways has two of them. However, the per hour price is again, very high. A discounted package will help!
