Great Flying Experience 

5 stars

 Instructor, Ed, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Allowed me to control the plane for more than half the flight, he took care of take-off and landing for obvious reasons. Views were amazing, would definitely recommend.

Awesome Experience 

5 stars

 I've always loved flying but never had the chance to take control until my wife bought me a lesson. It was everything I've been dreaming of! The flight instructor, Hannah, was friendly and very informative. I had a great time flying all around the Chesapeake and seeing Maryland from a whole new perspective! I totally recommend this and would definitely do it again!

Flight Lesson Given as Gift 

5 stars

 I bought this as gift for my wife on her b'day. She absolutely loved and cherished single moments experiencing flight of her lifetime. The aircraft was new and Tim Collins who was instructor for that day (usually he is there on weekends) was amazing! He has flown fighter jets being in Air Force and has tremendous experience and knowledge, history about planes in general. He explained each and every detail about controls, overall surrounding areas etc worth money spent. Thank you Experience days for making it worthwhile gift for my wife that she will cherish forever and when she posted pics and shared with her friends everyone now wants to do the same thing!

 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.

Great experience for my boyfriend 

5 stars

 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!

 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.

 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.

1 Hour Flight Lesson 

5 stars

 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. 

- - Bay Bridge Airport

Great FlightExperience 

5 stars

 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.

Excellent Time! 

5 stars

 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!

 Totally awesome ... instructor Luther Alexander was great! 

- - MD

Tons of fun! 

5 stars

 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!

Wonderful Experience 

5 stars

 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.

 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.

Flyin' High 

5 stars

 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! 

- - Annapolis

Awesome Flight Experience 

5 stars

 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 Experience 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!

Chesapeake Flying

 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!! 

- - Stevensville, MD

Memorable Experience 

5 stars

 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.
