My instructor Dave was the best. He was instructional on the controls so that a novice could understand what and how to do. By time he was done I thought I could have landed the plane. Thank God I didn't. Great experience would recommend to everybody.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hey William, we absolutely agree with you that Dave is an amazing instructor and we are glad you had a great experience! Hopefully we will be seeing you back soon for more adventures but until then Happy New Year!!! Best, Kelsey
I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE-THE PILOT/INSTRUCTOR ALLOWED ME TO TAXI,TAKE OFF,FLY VECTORS AND LAND THE AIRCRAFT. HAVING BEEN A FORMER NAVAL AVIATOR, IT WAS EXCITING TO BE ABLE TO RELIVE SOME PAST EXPERIENCES. I WOUILD RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE A GOOD INTRODUCTION TO THE WORLD OF AVIATION--I WILL BE BACK FOR MORE!!!
First time flying and had a great experience. Engaged instructor and good weather.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Good Afternoon Mark!  I hope you have had a fantastic week so far and thank you for sharing it with us! I will be sure to let our instructor know how much you enjoyed your time with them! What a great gift to try your hand at flying, I do hope we see you again for another lesson.  All the best,  Chelsea 
The young lady at check-in was super sweet and great to deal with. She really made me feel welcome. Joe (my pilot) couldn't be any more nice and patient. He was very knowledgeable and informative. Joe may me feel relaxed and comfortable. If I had the money I'd have him teach me to be a pilot. I know he would teach me the right way. He was great.
It was a great gift for my boyfriend, he loved it
I have just one word: FANTASTIC!
I absolutely loved my experience! My flying instructor was so knowledgeable, reassuring and interesting that I was immediately at ease and looking forward to the flight. The flight itself was exciting and the whole morning was extremely enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it.
This experience was great. It was better that I thought. The Instructor was very professional.
I had an unforgettable experience. The Pilot and the staff at Freeflight Aviation LLC were knowledgeable, professional and exceptionally pleasant.
AWESOME!! Check that one off the bucket list. Worth every penny!!!
Thank you and already responded to Barbara and Don at Flying W. LOVED IT, EXCELLENT!!!!
I had a great time! My instructor, Shannon, was an awesome guy with tons of knowledge to share. Highly recommended the one-hour flight lesson. I wish Medford Airport was closer to me, I would have absolutely signed up for further flight lessons/classes there.
Overall this was an awesome experience. My expectations were a little off: I rather expected to be more-or-less a passenger on an orientation flight, but it turned out this was the first lesson in a private pilot training course. I was put in the left-hand seat and had my hands on the controls, and that was fine with me! We "pre-flighted" the airplane in great detail and spent a solid hour in the air, including a short cross-country flight and three take-offs/landings. The instructor was calm and very experienced, and I had no fear at any point. (It helped that the weather was beautiful: a crisp, sunny, autumn day in New Jersey with the leaves turning color.) I can now cross this item off of my bucket list!
This is an awesome experience.
A great experience that pushed me to work towards my pilot's license.
Bob was a great guide and I really enjoyed my experience.
Experience was described as one hour. It was a 1/2 hour late to begin, then the instruction inside the building was well over an hour, followed by 1/2 hour in the air, and another 1/2 hour 'parking' the plane for the night. We never expected to get home so late. The description of 'one hour' was not close to the time it took. We have two parents in their mid-90's and not in the best of health at home that we don't leave alone for that long. Had we known, we would have arranged for someone to sit with them. Don was my instructor, and was very thorough and made it interesting. He has a nice personality as well. Other than the surprising length of time, I'm very glad I did this, and happy that our family bought this experience for me as a Christmas present.
I had the best time of my life. Everyone was kind and very nice in the whole facility. Will try my hardest to fly again. Thanks to everybody who got me in the air.
Everything was great, but had trouble hearing the instructor while in flight, which made following instructions impossible. Other than that, all was great!
Just a great experience all around - customer service from Cloud 9 was excellent and the flying lesson itself was great. The staff at the airport were helpful and the pilot instructor was very patient.
The experience was wonderful, the pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly, as well as everyone at Cloud 9 Living. I would recommend the experience to anyone.
What a wonderful experience!!! The booking and confirmation process was very easy with many follow-up e-mails. My flight instructor, Don Eck with Freeflight Aviation, was wonderful. The weather that morning was rainy with the potential of becoming rather windy. Don sent me an e-mail then we had a phone conversation concerning the weather. Fortunately, all systems were a go! The pre-flight and in-flight instruction were top-notch. The experience is one I'll never forgot in a very positive way. I would recommend Cloud 9 Living to anyone and this experience to everyone! Thank you so much for providing me with a wonderful day!
I loved it had a great time. I want to do it again
Enjoyed the lesson and experience very much.
I had an absolute blast on my first ever flight. Brian was phenomenal walking me trough the whole process and really allowing me to take the controls and experience the flight. I am now interested in getting my pilots license. I would highly recommend this experience
Had a great time the instructor was very informative knowledgeable made me feel very comfortable. Will let others know of my experience thanks for a great time.
Loved the experience and plan to go back soon - thanks!
My instructor was fantastic. I was an annoying customer and you guys treated me well. Thanks!
The experience overall was very satisfactory, however, what was supposed to take 1 hour turned into 3 hours! It was difficult to get 3 families together and drive 2 hours to do this experience. When we were getting ready to go up oin the plane it wouldn't start and the instructor said we would have to reschedule. I told him about the drive and heen spoke to mechanic and got the plane started and we were abe to continue with the experience. The experience was incredible and instructor very helpful and knowledgeable. The delay however put a cramp in the plans we had for the rest of the day! My appointment was for 9:30am the instructor didn't take me till 10:15 then delay getting started , we didn't get done until after 12:30pm, the whole experience was supposed to take 1 hour.
As a former fixed base operator and manager of Pennridge Airport, Perkasie, PA, I enjoyed the Flying W Airport in-house facilities and was very pleased with the welcoming and pleasant attitude of the airport manager and staff. The manager and I enjoyed reminiscing about past pilots that my family and I have had the pleasure of dealing with throughout the 1970s and 1980s. This airport was a perfect partnership for Cloud 9 Living. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone interested in seeking the joy of flight. Thank you very much.
