About This Experience

General Information hide

Venture into the California skies during this hands-on Introductory Flight Lesson over Monterey Bay. This one-on-one flying lesson with a Certified Flight Instructor begins in a private training office at the Monterey Peninsula Airport where you will meet the Pilot and set up your goals for the lesson.

The fun begins with a briefing and ground school instruction during which you will learn about the basics of flying. When ready, you will both head out to the flight ramp where you’ll aid your Flight Instructor with the preflight inspection of the aircraft. Once ready, you and the CFI will hop into the plane, taxi down the runway and take-off for a 60 minute hands-on Scenic Flight Lesson. During the flight you will actually take the controls and discover what it is like to Pilot a small Cessna aircraft! Don't forget to bring your camera to capture the amazing views of Monterey Bay from the air.

So, whether you have always dreamed of learning to fly or you are looking for the perfect unique gift, the Monterey Flying Lesson is the ticket!
