Premier Flight Academy’s team of certified flight instructors guide students through lessons in their FAA-approved simulator and a fleet of Diamond planes. Commencing the one-hour simulator session, students climb aboard an authentic flight-deck simulator equipped with dual controls, full-motion video, and fully-trained flight attendants to emulate an array of single- or twin-engine aircraft models. Students learn the controls, including a Garmin GPS, as they virtually practice approaching unfamiliar airfields and responding to scenarios such as flying with failed equipment. Simulators also create real-time weather conditions for cross-country flights, and enable guests to practice managing their crew in the event of interference from virtual hot-air balloon launches. Budding pilots begin their 1.5-hour flight training with a brief simulator run and an instruction session, followed by a journey in an actual plane. Instructors brief their protégés on aeronautical facts and theory, such as dynamics of flight, aerial safety, plane controls, and sudden changes in gravity, during ground training. After the ground training, student and instructor pairs strap into a United States Military training-approved Diamond plane, whose large canopies, slow flight speed, and easy handling allow for a safe hands-on experience. Guided by KLX135A or Garmin GPS systems and their instructors’ knowledge, pupils take the controls and soar like eagles wearing jet packs over the countryside for 30 minutes of flight time.

Customer Reviews

Awesome experience, Gary was a great instructor and I learned a lot
Christopher M. · March 22, 2012
My son loved this experience. He is infatuated by planes and this was the perfect gift for him. In fact it has guided him in his career choice. He is planning to be a pilot and considering the air force as we'll.

It was a great experience! Whether you're just looking to try out a little flight on a small plane or are looking to actually learn to become a pilot, this was very fun! Who knows...you might start out as just thinking of trying something new and it becomes more than that. Would definitely recommend giving it a try either way. Thanks!
