Instructor Bob was very good and made the flight very easy with his discussion regarding the aircraft and general navigation. A handout referencing information of the aircraft flown would have been nice for a keep sake. I was hoping to receive a dated certificate for my first recorded hour. Plan on doing it again.

I bought this for my boyfriend last year, and due to him being away we redeemed it one year later. I was so glad these certificates do not expire. His instructor, Neal, was awesome. He used to be a Navy pilot. He really lets you do whatever you're comfortable with. My boyfriend is a bit of a dare-devil when they came in for landing, he let Zach try taking off on his own! This experience is definitely a great bang for the buck I highly recommend giving it as a gift. We will definitely be talking about this for years to come!

Wonderful experience. Was able to fly north up the Chesapeake Bay and find and fly over three specific locations on the Eastern Shore and take photographs of them, including of my son and his wife on the ground outside their home. Flew the plane with instructions from the pilot. What a great Christmas present!

I got a certificate for my birthday from my wife and that was the best present ever! I had a blast! The instruction Tim Collins is a great guy.
- Sidney - Manassas, Tuesday, August 28, 2012
The two hour trip from Hagerstown was worth the super experience with Luther Alexander ( flight instructor ). In addition to a great flight Luther provided a wealth of information about sport plane piloting. I was not aware of this new ticket. I plan to investigate my options further. Thanks again.
- Frank Brooks - Stevensville Airport, Thursday, August 16, 2012
Staff were polite. Flight Instructor was calm and informative. I had one hour in the air and discovered the thrill of handling portions of the flight time including turning and controlling the aircraft. My family was excited for me and were allowed to take pictures from the tarmac. Thank you for a wonderful expierence.
- Howard Rosenberg - Baltimore, MD, Saturday, August 11, 2012
Totally awesome experience! This was a gift to my husband and he loved it. As well as my little girl who was brave and inspired by our flight instructor Mr. Ward. We will be back I recommend this as a gift for any one who wants to fly or treat yourself to an unforgettable afternoon!
- Betsy - Pasadena, Sunday, August 05, 2012
I've been waiting 30 years to do this and it was worth the wait. I highly recommend this to anyone on the fence! Future LSA pilot for sure.
- Casey - Parkville MD, Sunday, July 08, 2012
It was a great experience. I have already recommended it to friends.
- Ryder Schnaithmann - Bay Bridge Airport Kent Island Maryland, Thursday, May 31, 2012
As a goal, something on my bucket list prior to age 50, was to start the process to obtaining my pilots liscense. The instructor was great. Weather was outstanding. Most of all, my wife survived stage 1 of seeing her best friend flying above. Now it's time for stage 2 and beyond!
- Andreas Dailey - Stevensville, MD, Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Wow, I got much more than I expected. The weather was perfect and Jim was a great 'co-pilot'. At first, I thought an hour would be too long, however, once we went up, I really didn't want to come down. I will definitely do this again.
- Derek Mcclure - Bay Bridge Airport, Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Awesome experience, the instructor was very thorough, but also very assuring! Thanks
- Glenwood williams - Kent island, Sunday, April 15, 2012
This was a great day and a wonderful experience. My flight instructor was great and made me feel very comfortable the entire time!
- Robert Mauch - Rehoboth Beach, DE, Saturday, February 25, 2012
My instructor, Andrew was very knowledgeable and made sure I understood the important factors of flying. Really enjoyed myself.
- Paul Laramie - Reisterstown, MD, Monday, January 30, 2012
This was my first time in a small two passager plane and I had a time of my life, as they say 'I'M HOOKED' I now plan on getting my 'Private Pilot License'... somthing to do when I retire...
- Doy 'Dennis' Seabolt Jr. - Bay Bridge Airport, Monday, January 23, 2012
Great time, well worth the cost for the experience. Pilot did an excellent job and the sport plane, Sky Arrow 600, was the best way to experience the joy of flying.
- Walter Chahanovich - Chesapeake Sports Pilot Club, Monday, December 19, 2011
I had a great flying experience with my instructor Neal Guernsey on Sunday. A little nervous at first but with excellent instruction all my expectations were exceeded and I had one of the best days of my life. Thank you Neal and Xperience Days..!
- Matthew Chapman - Bay Bridge Airport, Monday, December 05, 2011
My flight lesson was very enjoyable. Since I know a bit about flying, the instructor didn't waste time explaining the basics. He took off, then let me take the stick. We flew about 20 minutes to a small airport, landed, taxied, took off again and returned to Bay Bridge. Spectacular views of the Delmarva and the Bay. The hour went by fast, but it was unforgettable.
- Jesse Hightower - Bay Bridge Airport, Tuesday, November 29, 2011
I had a great flight experience with Dan Wroe, instructor. I had flown many years earlier, and Dan built on that experience and corrected some misconceptions. He briefed me before hand and asked about my prior flying experience, to make the flight more customized, and reviewed what was covered today, and what a subsequent flying path would be like.
- Mark Goldberg - Kent Island MD airport, Friday, November 18, 2011
Great Instructor! Great air plane, and really great experience!!
- Alex Mahoney - Kent Island, Monday, November 07, 2011
My experience was absolutely amazing. I enjoyed every part of it, my instructor was very knowledgeable and made the experience comfortable. I felt very safe flying with him. I appreciate the opportunity I was given.
- Ben Thorne - Chesapeake Sport Pilot, Thursday, November 03, 2011
I flew with one of the instructors at Chesapeake Sport Pilot, Mr. Luther Alexander. After a small briefing, we were able to do everything I requested as well as what was included. It was an excellent time and any aviation buff/flight sim nerd will find this to be an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this to anybody wishing they could fly planes. It's opened up the floodgates for me - I'm desperately trying to come up with a way to take flight lessons! Preferably with Chesapeake Sport Pilot!
- Peter Getty - Rockville, MD, Tuesday, October 25, 2011
Totally awesome ... instructor Luther Alexander was great!
- George Nugent - MD, Wednesday, October 12, 2011
It was cool controlling the plane in the air. Apparently many people just kinda fly straight, but as I was going up and down, side to side, the pilot was keeping tabs on the rest of the plane. He was a nice guy, explained a lot. I did go down and up enough to nearly pass out, but that was all me and I can get dizzy just standing up. Andrew also did a few other maneuvers in the plane which was cool too. The experience even counts as a one hour lesson towards your license. I recommend!
- Robbie - Baltimore, Sunday, September 25, 2011
THIS WAS AWESOME!!! Thought it was just going to be an airplane tour...boy was I wrong! I actually got hands on instruction on flying the plane, then got to fly, land and take off for myself! What a rush! Well worth the money!
- Chris - Dover, DE, Tuesday, September 20, 2011
Was very good the best 25 birthday gift that I could get for someone I love.
- Hodaya - Rockville, Friday, September 02, 2011
I bought this experience for my boyfriend for our one year anniversary, and he really loved it! The instructor was a really nice guy, and he let my boyfriend fly the plane for over an hour. He was very informative and professional, and he went above and beyond what was expected. At one point he said 'Where do you want to go? Here, fly wherever you want!' Truly a hands-on experience. Couldn't have been more pleased.
- Shannon G. - Pennsylvania, Saturday, August 13, 2011
Flight experience was great. It was my first time in such a small plane, and pilot, Andrew, made me feel very comfortable. Also let me take the stick for a while in the air, which was amazing. A great gift from my wife.
- Jay Eisenberg - Bay Bridge Airport, Wednesday, July 20, 2011
I enjoyed it very much. Don't know how it could be improved.
- William McGinnes - Crumpton, MD, Sunday, July 17, 2011
This was absolutely in the top 10 experiences of my life! Always wanted to fly and Chris made my dream come true. He was patient and let me do whatever I felt comfortable doing. 3 days later I am still on 'cloud 9'. If you need referrals I am your man.
- Robert Merrell - Kent Island Airport, Tuesday, July 12, 2011
It was a beautiful day on the Chesapeake, the airplane was sleek and comfortable, the pilot was knowledgeable and friendly, and the overall experience was great!
- Rich S - Odenton, MD, Tuesday, July 12, 2011
Excellent, Rose was my instructor. I felt very safe, and calm with her. A wonderful experience
- Thomas Stack - Bay Airport, Monday, May 16, 2011
Jim was the best! He was patient and is the best person for the job. I had an interest in learning to fly before this but now I REALLY can't wait to get started. Kudo's to this experience and thanks to Jim again for a wonderful experience.
- Jason Hisaw - Annapolis, Thursday, May 05, 2011
I bought my husband a flight lesson for this 31st birthday! He was completely shocked when I presented it to him. When he went up in the air, he said 'it was a memorable experience'. I enjoyed being able to provide him with such an experience. Well worth it and I highly recommend it to anyone who seeks adventure. It created a wonderful memory for him.
- Cabell - Baltimore, MD, Monday, March 07, 2011
Its always been a true dream since childhood to fly like all of the super heroes, well I came just about as close as I ever would. It was amazing. I thought it would primarily be a lesson of watching, but when I showed up my instructor said, 'Alright, well be careful and if I feel like you are doing anything that would endanger us, I'll take over, but its your show today.' I flew for the ENTIRE hour, and took off and landed the second time by myself!!! Once in a lifetime experience!
- Matt - Annapolis, Monday, December 13, 2010
Like others, I received this experience as a birthday present. I have always wanted to learn to be a pilot and this introductory flight through Xperience Days and Chesapeake Sport Pilot was simply fabulous! The aircraft was essentially brand new and in perfect condition, and my instructor (Ben Cater) was absolutely first rate. Under his guidance, I flew the aircraft for most of the experience and feel I learned a whole lot in a short amount of time. I am very much looking forward to my next flight!
- Steve A. - D.C. Area, Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Amazing. Tim Flemming was a great instructor and pretty much let me fly the whole time aside from take-off and landing. Great experience and would love to further pursue flight lessons.
- Kenneth Dubin - Washington D.C., Wednesday, June 23, 2010
I received a one hour gift certificate for my birthday...I must admit initially I wasn't very excited about it. I have never really had a desire to fly, but I am so glad that I got to do this. The pilot was great, laid back, confident, experienced, and best of all I did most of the flying. I highly recommend this to anyone whether you want to actually fly or just sight see, this is a really cool and unique gift / experience. Now I do have the desire to fly...I can't wait to do it again!!
- Blake - Stevensville, MD, Monday, April 19, 2010
My flight instructor (Tim Fleming) was very experienced and made the whole experience a lot more interesting and enjoyable. I piloted the majority of the lesson. We flew in a Sky Arrow which has a large canopy and great visibility since the instructor sits behind you. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone remotely interested interested in aircraft or flying.
- Wendo - Bethesda, Friday, April 02, 2010
Thank you so much for your great help in organisation of an experience 'Annapolis Flight Lesson'! It was cool! My husband was incredibly glad to get such amazing experience! We wished to use services of your company again in the future!
- Marina - Annapolis, Monday, February 08, 2010
Great experience! Very professional and experienced trainer Helen Woods! Wished to do it again:)!
- Fedor Iskhakov - College Park, MD, Saturday, February 06, 2010
I must say that Xperience Days was so helpful through the purchasing experience. Customer service was patient, thorough, and really helpful in making a final decision on this flight experience purchase. I chose standard shipping and it arrived in 2 business days, amazing! Hopefully, scheduling and the flight will be just as flawless. I'm looking forward to my boyfriend's reaction. Thank you again for your help.
- Jessica - West Chester, Wednesday, December 09, 2009
Knowledgeable, friendly instructor. Awesome experience!!
- Steve H. - Washington, D.C., Monday, November 23, 2009
Experience went beyond what I thought it would be. The aircraft, though an unusual design, had a huge canopy with me in front and the instructor in back. I was allowed to fly certain aspects of the trip. The pilot was very polite. Would do this again.
