NextGen Flight Academy is really fun and great. I had so much learning and the instructor Corey was very patient and kind. Corey was very helpful and gave great tips, he answered all my questions. I recommend you to fly with Corey, he made my experience phenomenal. There two locations and I went to the Riverside location. You need to make an appointment. I will go again :) Staff is very nice too.

Our instructor, Dawson, was a homerun instructor. Patient, kind, approachable, inviting, ... so much to say here, I could go on and on. My son, 14, has always talked about flying. When I came across this experience I thought, heck yeah. Was a bit nervous at first and then afterwards, with all my son had to say about the experience I felt like mom of the year. This has been the highlight of every conversation with friends and family since. Thank you Dawson, this day meant so much to me and him.
