Purchase an Introductory Flying Lesson Gift Certificate

An introductory flight lesson allows any individual to experience flight in a 4-seat training aircraft. They handle the flight controls under the instruction of a CFI (certified flight instructor) for 90% of the flight. They will be able to experience: making the takeoff, straight flight, turns, climbs, and descents.

The recipient can bring along a back seat passenger as well at no additional cost as long as the your total weight does not exceed 430 pounds.  It is possible to take up to 580 pounds total passenger weight (and possibly a 3rd person) in a Piper Archer.  The best flight path takes you out to the coast south of Half Moon Bay.  An alternate route takes you over Fremont and Livermore.

The introductory flight lesson is given during the weekdays at 8:30 am, 11:30 am, and 2 pm from Palo Alto or San Carlos airports.

I only offer weekend introductory flights on Sunday at 830 am.  If you need a certain date contact me before purchase to check your date is open.  Or you can purchase without a set date and schedule to fly later on any Sunday excluding the following peak months (June, July, August, and September) There is an additional fee of $20 for a weekend (Sunday) lesson which is paid in cash the day you fly.
