The flight lesson includes video footage of the experience, headset rental, log book, and credit toward an FAA license. Sessions begin with 60 minutes of ground instruction from a former commercial pilot before leading into a 60-minute instructional flight. Instructors then lead a subsequent one-hour flight that teaches students important fundamentals such as climbing, descending, and turning.

For the multiple-person options, students rotate who flies the plane out and back to home base.

Positive Rate Gear Up

The licensed aviators at Positive Rate Gear Up command a trio of Piper aircraft, which they use during flying lessons and their own aerial jaunts. The squad includes seasoned veterans ranging from commercial airline pilots to recreational fliers, and takes on students who are working toward wings of their own. The club's nest at Republic Airport exposes trainees to a busy Class D airspace, allowing them to become accustomed to sharing the air and negotiating heavy traffic caused by 10-cloud pileups. The team also teaches discovery flights aimed at beginners that help them understand cockpit instrumentation and controls as they try their hand at a few aerial maneuvers.

Instructor was great! Experience was great! There was no class or any prior training and they added a $20 fee per person at the end that wasn't mentioned on the phone or groupon.
