The staff at Sundowner Aviation were very warm and friendly. I didn't know what I was getting myself into, and they took the time to be very friendly and educational. The gentleman they paired me with to fly (Jake) was an awesome pilot and instructor. I had a blast and would highly recommend to anyone!

I will be sure to let Jake know how much you enjoyed your time with him, and that he was able to ease your nervs and help you find the beauty in the art of flying! We appreciate you letting us be apart of such an unforgettable adventure and we hope to see you again soon for another great day! All the best,  Chelsea 
Jake was our instructor and he did a really great job of explaining everything, making us feel comfortable, and ensuring that we both got a chance to experience maneuvering and flying the plane. This was such a great wedding gift! You get so stuck in routines and busy with day-to-day life, but this made us get out and try something new together!
