After brief ground instruction and a safety check, instructors lead the student into the cockpit of a Cessna or Piper Cherokee for 30 or 60 minutes of in-air, hands-on flight instruction over the nearby town and countryside. Students who want to continue training can log this time toward a private pilot's license.

Crosswinds Flight School

Though a student has to be 17 years old to get his or her pilot's license, the instructors at Crosswinds Flight School start flyers as young as 12 on the path toward becoming new pilots. On the runways of Cross Keys Airport in Williamstown, New Jersey, they train students in the basic operations, takeoff, and steering procedures of compact Cessna and Piper Cherokee aircraft. As instructors guide their students toward a private pilot's license or instrument rating, they field questions about specific cockpit controls, techniques of flight, and types of clouds that make the best cotton candy. They progressively fine-tune the skill sets of participants in each course through short solo flights and up to 150-mile cross-country voyages.

Customer Reviews

It's great! We paid an extra $20 for a passenger to ride in the plane as well. The instructors are knowledgeable and safe.

You will learn a lot, AND you'll actually get to pilot the plane! I recommend skipping the 30mins and opt for the longer times. Great intro class, with great staff. Def worth it!
