“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!”
