While sailing high above Southern California in the cockpit of a Cessna Skyhawk, a pilot can look down at the land below and see everything from undisturbed wilderness to commuters stuck in traffic. The pilots and certified instructors at Fly Corona help others uncover this bird's-eye view of the world through demonstration flights and individual lessons. During demos, passengers frequently take the controls themselves as the instructor supervises, and several full aviation training programs help students work toward getting their pilot's license, an ID vital for getting into eagles' mountain-top nightclubs.
