- $149 for One hour Private Flying Lesson with Pre and Post Flight Instruction in Western Suburbs ($235 value)
- $99 for Private Flying Lesson (Airtime Only) ($185 value)
An hour private flying lesson begins with on-the-ground training that elucidates the fundamentals of flight control. Then students spend time piloting a plane over Chicago’s western suburbs under the guidance of experienced pilot Ron Sachen. Finally, a debriefing after the flight gives more insight into flying.
Modern Flight Instruction
For years, Ron Sachen has taken to the Illinois skies inside fixed-wing aircraft. In fact, he loves flying so much that he has dedicated his life to teaching others the joy of soaring through the clouds. To inspire passion in his students and ensure a comprehensive lesson, his classes emphasize hands on learning. After 30–60 minutes of ground-based lessons, students take the controls in the air and get a feel for what it must have been like when the Wright brothers first took flight, rather than when they first jumped off their roof flapping homemade paper wings.
