One of the best parts of hands-on pilot lessons is the training over a breathtaking expanse of scenery. So what better place to tackle some aviation training than around the NYC region?

Both types of flying lessons are conducted by FAA certified flight instructors from start to finish. Upon arrival, participants receive a brief ground orientation and assist with a pre-flight inspection of the aircraft. Then it's off to the aircraft for the hands-on flight lesson, complete with spectacular views!
