Outstanding! My 13 year old son flew out of Sacramento for his birthday. The instructor was extremely good at explaining everything during the pre-flight inspection, and my son had a great experience in the air!

Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Dennis! Thanks for the review and we're glad you had a great time we hope to see you back for more adventures soon! Best, Kelsey
My husband was delightfully surprised at just how cool this experience actually was, I didn’t think he was going to be able to actually take off and land the plane but the instructor pretty much let him do everything, of course he still controled some parts but he said he really loved the experience and it was way more than he had expected.
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Joeleene, congrats on being a phenomenal gift giver!!! That is really cool that your husband got to take-off and land the plane! Usually, the instructor handles the take-off and landing but of course it is up to the instructor so your husband must have been an AWESOME student!!! Thank you so much for sharing this amazing experience with us and we hope you will seek more adventures through Cloud 9 Living in the future but until then Happy New Year! Best, Kelsey
I was flying within minutes of meeting my instructor. Great instruction. I'm only sorry that I didn't redeem the gift certificate long ago. So glad that it didn't expire.

Was a present I received. Loved it. I'm hard to shop for and this was perfect.
I enjoyed the experience immensely. My pilot was a consummate professional, was very patient, and made the whole experience a bucket list memory to enjoy.
Most exciting experience ever! Loved it!!
Everyone connected with this experience was very helpful and pleasant. I had to reschedule and there was no problem. Rich Gross was the flight instructor and he spent extra time explaining all the controls and procedures. All in all it was a great flight. If anyone would like to get the feel of flying a plane yourself, this is the place to go.
My 12-year-old son absolutely loved his Learn to Fly experience. I had no idea that he would be able to take off and land multiple times, the pilot even taught him how to handle emergency situations; Steve really let my son feel he was in control. It has totally ignited a love for flying in my son, who now wants to continue on and get his pilot's license.
