About This Experience

General Information hide

Discover the thrill of flying an airplane during this exciting hands-on Introductory Flying Lesson over Salinas, CA! After you meet your Certified Flight Instructor at the Salinas Municipal Airport, you will climb into a Cessna 172. This exciting sixty minute experience will take you soaring as your Certified Flight Instructor provides one-on-one introductory aviation training.  Plus, you may even bring a guest to join you!
