5 stars rating 12 Reviews
participants 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!

A Beautiful Day to Learn to Fly

Cessna Flight Lesson 

5 stars

 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!

Flight Lesson Review 

5 stars

 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.

Great flight experience 

5 stars

 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. :)

 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.
