Flight Lesson In Eastern Massachusetts
Fly a Cessna 172 During a Central Massachusetts Intro Flight
Price for 1 participant
Learn to Fly! Experience the thrill of flying as you take over the controls of a Cessna 172 aircraft. Your flight lesson begins with ground instruction showing you how the aircraft flies, what the controls do, how to read the gauges, and what to look for in conducting the pre-flight inspection.
After your ground instruction is complete, you will take to the air on a 30 to 45 minute discovery flight lesson. With the help of your flight instructor, you will actually see what it is like to be a pilot and fly a plane! Flights are usually conducted outside the airport, but you will have a chance to see Mount Wachusett, the Quabbin Reservoir, and the Boston Skyline.
With the ground school and hands-on flight combined, by the end of this aerial adventure, you will have a basic understanding of how to fly an airplane all on your own!

I had a fantastic flight lesson and flight with my instructor Bob Dube. He was patient, professional and fun to be with. Not only did we do some classroom instruction, but also did the pre flight plane check, and finally takeoff, flying time and landing. I had the time of my life. Thanks to mson for this gift.....I would recommend this to anyone....WOW!

The Flight Lesson was better than expected. It was half orientation/classroom style training and half 'at the controls' of a Cessna 172. The instructor was very knowledgeable and patient with a novice student. A good experience for anyone interested in an introduction to flying.

My flight instructor was Pete and what a great guy to fly with. He's got a great attitude and clearly enjoys what he does. He was super informative and easy to learn from. Being up in the air and actually controlling the plane was a great experience. Definitely something I will do again ... and, yes, I've been looking into a pilots license. :)

It was a great experience taking the controls and flying over my house and the local ski mountain. Great fun.

Flying a plane is one one the best experiences you could ever do. It was the best birthday gift ever. I highly recommend anyone to try it. It is most definitely worth the price. After flying once I am hooked, I will now try to get my pilots license.

An overall great experience. From someone who had never flown before, I had an amazing time. A quick walk around the plane with on the ground instruction, then we were off and flying. Over an hour of flight time with a good chuck of it done by yours truly. I would highly recommend.

OUTSTANDING! My flying experience at FCA Flight Center in Fitchburg was excellent. Pete was a great instructor. I learned a lot, got to control the plane for most of the time and it was an amazing experience from start to finish.

I had know idea how much fun it would be too fly, the instructor (Tony) was able to take me from never having an been behind the controls of an aircraft to letting me take off and land. I'll be back for sure, thanks.
