Experience the Thrill of Loops, Rolls and More During an Introductory Acrobatic Flight Lesson

About This Experience

General Information hide

Learn how to fly a fully acrobatic, tandem-seating, stick-controlled Citabria or Super Decathlon aircraft during this Bay Area Acrobatic Flight Lesson! The excitement of this one-hour Introductory Flight Lesson begins when you meet with a Professional Pilot and Certified Flight Instructor at the Reid-Hillview Airport in San Jose, California.

Your experience gift begins with ground instruction on the tarmac. Here you will learn about the aircraft as well as hear about the maneuvers you will perform once airborne. Following a review of mall aircraft safety procedures, you will be taken through the entire envelope of the aircraft. Next it’s time to strap in alongside your Pilot who will taxi the plane down the runway.  Upon take-off you will soar over Silicon Valley, take over the controls and learn to fly a plane! In addition to basic maneuvers you will be taught how to perform loops, rolls, hammerheads, stalls and spins, and even recovery techniques.

What a unique gift for true thrill-seekers who wish to soar above the crowd!
