The Deal

$129 for a flight training package (a $430 value)

  • 20 minutes of classroom training
  • 20 minutes in a flight simulator
  • 30–45-minute flight lesson inside an airplane
  • Log book

After a classroom session, students take their first flight inside a realistic plane simulator with a full cockpit. The instructor then takes students up in an airplane, where they soar over Los Angeles’s cityscape. The in-flight session allows one student to practice flying the plane. If there are multiple students, the others will watch from the passenger seats.

Encore Flight

From their home base at Van Nuys Airport, the certified flight instructors at Encore Flight apply what they learned as students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to the training of new pilots-to-be through everything from discovery flights to full pilot's certification. The crew goes to work aboard an extensive fleet of Piper and Cessna light-sport aircraft, or doles out instruction while safely planted on the ground inside two FAA-approved flight simulators, one a stationary apparatus and the other a full-motion Redbird FMX. Fully enclosed in the Redbird's cockpit, students experience the motions of actual flight on all three axes and enjoy more than 200 degrees of wrap-around visuals, helping them spot hazards such as oncoming flocks of birds or commuting superheroes.

Customer Reviews

This was a birthday present for my hubby - the best present thus far! Good price, excellent flight, and hubby got to fly (not land and take off). We timed it so we saw the city in daylight and finished in nightlight. Wonderful!
