$119 for a 30-Minute Discovery Flying Lesson with Video ($325 Value)
A certified flight instructor welcomes you into the cockpit of a Cessna aircraft. Once in the air, you'll take the controls and experience the thrill of flight, soaring over Los Angeles' famous architecture and landscapes. Afterward, instructors send newly christened fliers home with a training logbook and video of the flight—perfect for sharing online or making a penguin feel bad about its limitations.
A propeller roars to life and a plane lifts into the air. The towering buildings of Los Angeles, the dense trees of nearby national forests, and the sprawling waters of the Pacific Ocean come into view as the aircraft soars higher and higher. The pilot at the controls is confident and at ease—which is unexpected, since it's his first time flying. One of California Aviators' certified instructors sits by his side, walking the new pilot through every step of the adventure.
California Aviators' pilots unlock the magic of flight during outings just like these. Aside from beginner discovery flights, the expert staff also leads a summer aviation camp for young adults aged 12–16. The flying facility also houses piston-engine aircraft and a flight simulator with programs for planes, helicopters, and pegasuses.
