    “A truly unique experience! Highly recommended for anyone interested in flying. If hearing/talking over the pilot headset while having your hands on the controls while doing a controlled decent/turn and learning how to read the altimeter, climb speed, air speed, etc perks your interest at all, you will not be disappointed. Even my girlfriend (who is scared of flying) couldn't of been happier that she went and was thrilled with the overall experience. This voucher was purchased as a birthday gift for me but I surely plan to come again.”

The aviation school and Cloud 9 Living really knocked it out of the park! Our instructor, Mason, was knowledgeable and really fun! This experience was just what I needed to get inspired to follow my dream of getting my pilot's license. Hands down, the best birthday gift ever!!!”
