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 (which many intro flights do not include), 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 440 pounds. You can bring a 3rd person for $40 more. It is possible to take up to 580 pounds total passenger weight 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. A pilot swap or bay tour can be added on to any lesson the day of the flight for $40 more. Flight time can be extended in .1 hour increments for $30 each.
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. There is an additional fee of $40 for a weekend (Sunday) lesson which is paid in cash the day you fly.
