Lots of fun. We waited out some weather so we were able to go. Glad they did that instead of having to reschedule. Flight was great.

This was a great experience. I purchased the 60-minute introductory flight and was amazed at how much flying I actually did. It was great, the instructor was experienced, ran me through the flight pre-checks, taught me about the panel indicators and how to fly the plane. I was able to perform a take off with help and left the landing to him :)

About This Deal

  • What’s included in the intro flight:
    • Ground school introduces students to basic flying techniques, including how to properly preflight the aircraft.
    • During flying lessons, students will have the chance to perform takeoff with the assistance of the flight instructor and do the majority of the flying, receiving help from the instructor for the landing.
  • During the downtown skyline flight students have the chance to fly the plane for a while; however, when the plane actually gets into the Chicago airspace the instructor takes the rains

About Northwest Flyers

Those who head 8 miles to the west of O'Hare International Airport can discover a different way to fly. Schaumburg's Northwest Flyers was founded by pilot Skip Barchfeld in 1986, and over the decades its scope has expanded to include a flight school, charter services, and a full aircraft-maintenance shop.

Taking off out of the Schaumburg Regional Airport allows Northwest Flyers to take people on scenic flights over Lake Michigan, from where passengers can gaze down on Chicago's iconic landmarks. Oftentimes, a single trip with Northwest Flyers is all it takes for a person to catch the flying bug. Luckily, their certified flight instructors train people to get private and commercial pilot licenses, which grants them access to all the mini bags of pretzels they want on flights.
