Choose from Four Options

  • $109 for a 60-minute private flight experience for one (a $275 value)

Private flight experience includes headset rental, logbook, credit toward an FAA license, 30 minutes of ground instruction from a certified teacher, and a 60-minute instructional flight aboard an IFR-certified aircraft. While airborne, the instructor will hand over controls to the student for a few basic maneuvers.

After 30 minutes of ground instruction on aircraft dynamics and cockpit instruments, pairs load up into the IFR-certified aircraft alongside their instructor for up to 60 minutes of soaring above Long Island—all while devouring chocolate-covered strawberries.

  • $249 for a three-hour sunset flight for two with chocolate-covered strawberries (a $695 value)
  • $399 for a three-hour sunset flight for four–six with chocolate-covered strawberries (a $1,390 value)

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.

amazing experience will definitely do it again and will do it again soon
Bryan F. C. · January 18, 2017
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.
