Learn to fly a plane with this Northern Virginia aviation adventure! With this flying lesson, you have the opportunity to take the controls and fly a Cessna 172 M over beautiful Virginia.

The one hour flight lesson kicks off at either Manassas or Leesburg with a full 30 minute briefing from your qualified instructor, who will explain all safety procedures as well as the flying techniques used in light aircraft flying. When the briefing is done, it’s time to climb aboard the Cessna and take your place in the co-pilot’s seat next to your fully qualified flight instructor. After pre-flight checks, your instructor will get you airborne; then it’s your turn to take the controls and actually fly the plane yourself! Take in the increible Virginia views below and get a real feel for flying the aircraft, before your pilot instructor takes over again to bring you safely back to earth.

So if you’ve always wanted to fly a plane, or you have a loved one who’d dream it is to learn to fly, then take off for this North Virginia Flying Lesson!

First Flight Lesson 

5 stars

It was a great experience. Spence was very knowledgeable and helpful, as well kind,considerate and understanding. The plane was a little beat up on the inside, which concerned me when I first got in, but mechanically it seemed fine. Very professional outfit all the way around. Will go back for more!

This was an amazing experience. My instructor Aaron was terrific. I would recommend Aaron to anyone who wants an amazing flying experience. I did not know how much actual flying I would get to do and as it turned out it was the majority of the time. I enjoyed every minute and recommend this experience. This was a bucket list item that I want to put back on the list and do again.

5 stars

Highly recommended! The instructors are all very pleasant, easy to converse with and wise to what works for you. Do not let the term 'Lesson' deceive you, if only all lessons were like that then education would just be one big party. I learnt and retained a large amount of information and was surprised to find how much you are able to do and achieve. You can be sure that I will return... very soon.

This experience was sooo amazing I'm not even sure where to start. Brent was my instructor and that dude ROCKS! He was friendly, personable and most important knowledgeable. He explained everything from the pre-flight to the landing and even though the weather was challenging (very windy/cold day), the flight/lesson was incredibly fun. I highly recommend this and suggest that everyone put this on their bucket list.

BEST FLIGHT EVER!!! 

5 stars

This was a present from my wife. I went to the Aviation Adventures in Manassas Regional Airport, the staff was absolutely very friendly. I flew with KEVIN (Launch Pad) After a quick briefing since I told him that I have previous flying experience, he showed me where we were going to fly and he let me do all the flying, take offs and landings and some manuevers. We went from Manassas to Culpeper, one full stop landing and we went back to Manassas. It was a little windy and it made the ride more exciting. If you have a log book don't hesitate to take it, this hour was logged on mine!!!

Once in a lifetime experience 

5 stars

The flying lesson was amazing, and thrill of a lifetime. To make things even better, the airport allowed my fiance and her daughter to fly with me and video tape the whole thing. It is something I checked off the bucket list but might be something i do again as it was so much fun. They really do let you fly, including taking off and landing if conditions are good.

Flight lesson was on a beautiful Saturday morning. Arrived a little early and staff was very professional and friendly. The instructor (Kevin) was very personable and full of information. From the pre-flight checklist to the return landing at Manassas, one of the best adventures I've taken. Anyone interested in flying should schedule with them.

Doesn't get much more 'hands on' than this experience. The instructor was great and let me do as much (or as little) as I was comfortable doing, including taking off and landing the plane with his assistance, of course. Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in flying!

It was a blast. To steer a plane. I was allowed to take off, land and everything. Instructor was constantly correcting my mistakes obviously (if not there would be a big hole with wings sticking out of it... near airfield) but still it was a great experience.

The flight was great. The instructor, Nouman, let me take control of the plane. He worked the radio, transponder, and rudder pedals. He would give me the direction to go and I would control the plane. We even landed twice. It was a great experience. Would love to do it again.

Greatest Experience Ever!! 

5 stars

This was a birthday present from my girlfriend, and it was by far the best present ever! I was a little nervous, but have always wanted to fly. The folks at aviation adventures are great! They walk you through everything, and no joke, you fly the plane from taxiing, to taking off, to landing. They are super friendly, good-humored, and informative. Loved every second of it!!

If anyone has ever thought about wanting to fly a plane, then I would definitely recommend this experience. The crew at the Leesburg location are great and they actually let you FLY THE PLANE including take-off and part of the landing. I am now hooked and I plan to go back again soon.

It was superb. Everyone at Aviation Adventures was friendly and fun. I flew with Matt and we had a blast. I got to have the controls from take off to landing. I even got to land in a field and experience the sensation of zero-gravity! Definitely a must-do experience!

Flying Lesson Manassas 

5 stars

This was a birthday present from my daughters. The folks at Aviation Adventures were friendly and professional. My instructor was very good and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience as I had the controls from taxiing on the ground through takeoff, flying then landing. Of course with assistance from the instructor as needed. I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in seeing what it's like to fly a plane.

Adventure Flight in Manassas 

5 stars

This was the most amazing thing I have ever done. The instructor was really informative and I had a blast! I was really nervous when he told me I would be flying and he would just be there to tell me what to do. But after I was in the air for a few minutes it was a lot easier then I had imagined. I would recommend this to anyone! Great time!

Flying Lesson Virginia 

5 stars

It was great, but not for me. I really enjoyed the experience, the flight instructor was great, ex military pilot, and I was able to learn a lot from my showed me that flying is a lot easier then I had always thought it was. On that note I did almost loose my lunch up there with some of the sharper turns. I have also conditioned my self to fall asleep the second I get into a plane, so about half way through the flight I started to have to fight that. All in all I thought it was a great time, but would most likely not do it again.

This was my birthday gift from my wife. Thanks, Sweeties! I was fortunate to have a beautiful, warm November Sunday morning for my flight. The staff at Aviation Adventures was very friendly and professional. The flight was terrifying at first, but I eventually loosened up and really enjoyed myself. Chris, the instructor, was a great instructor and answered all my questions and never made me nervous. If you decide to do it, just realize that he'll take over if things go amiss. So, on that note, have a blast! What a great gift.

My flight was booked at Manassas, and it was a genuine flight school lesson #1. I sat on the left side, and did some of the flying. The people at Aviation Adventures are a really nice crowd, very friendly, helpful and informative.

Flying Lesson 

5 stars

When I showed up at the Leesburg Executive Airport for my flying lesson, I found out that XperienceDays had booked my lesson at the Manassas airport instead. I showed the people at Aviation Adventures my confirmation (which said Leesburg), and they hooked me up. Kudos to Raymond and everyone else there. The experience itself was amazing. I've never flown a plane myself before, and it was a little scary at first, but it was tons of fun as well. I don't think I'll ever forget it. Now I've just got to save the money to go again! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to see what it's like to fly.
