“I gifted this experience to my husband for his birthday and I was able to schedule the flight on his actual birthday date which was very lucky! We had perfect weathertight, but were both a little nervous (I flew as a passenger), but the instructor, Rachel instantly put us at ease as she was cool, calm, and collected. I think he may have even been satisfied with just learning everything about the plane, but he actually flew us over Lake Travis and we caught some great views of Austin downtown close to sunset!! It was an absolutely amazing, once in a lifetime, memorable experience for both of us. I’d recommend this experience to anyone and everyone. We had a really great time and his birthday was perfect. Thank you to Sophia at Cloud Nine, and Rachel, his instructor, for making this birthday one neither of us will ever forget!”

Hello, Sherry!  Wow! I am simply speechless! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! It sounds like Jason's instructor, Rachel, was really able to make Jason's birthday incredibly special! We will be sure to pass along the kind remarks. To give such a thoughtful, memorable gift can be tricky, but you absolutely hit the nail on the head! We are honored to be a part of such a momentous experience for you both. I'm so happy to know that despite the initial trepidation, your flight was perfect, fun, and beautiful, even offering a moment to take in Lake Travis and downtown Austin! We would be thrilled to get you two out for another unforgettable experience!  Best, Sophia

“What a great experience. Anybody can do this”
“The instructor was extremely professional and very patient. I had a great time using my experience gift.”
“So great!! The instructor Brandon really took the time to explain what we'd being doing. We did the walk around of the aircraft and he really got me involved in the process for a hands on experience. So happy I got to do this, and now I have to get my license! =)”
“Better than expected! I had no flight experience at all, but I learned so much and got to actually control the plane. Highly recommended!”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Good Afternoon Kenneth!  It is great to hear that your Introductory flight went so well! What was your favorite part of the experience? I definitely love that these flights allow for such a hands on experience. No better way to learn then doing it yourself. I will be sure to let our pilots know how much you enjoyed yourself as I know they will love reading your kind words! We hope to see you out on another great adventure soon. Thank you for writing in and sharing what sounds like a fantastic day with us.  All the best,  Chelsea 
“My wife and son truly enjoyed their flight. I have passed info to several friends already.”
“Jonathan was an awesome instructor, and he really helped me feel comfortable while flying. I learned a lot from him and really enjoyed the experience. ”
“Amazing!”
“This was one of the best gifts I've ever received. It makes me want to go out and buy a plane tomorrow so I can keep getting that amazing feeling day after day! My instructor was knowledgeable and friendly. He allowed me to do way more flying than I thought he would. It was fantastic! I highly recommend it.”
“Great experience! Only wish I had done it sooner. ”
“This was something on my 'bucket list' of things to do. My husband surprised me a few days before my birthday. I had already scheduled the day off (I make it a practice to never work on my birthday) so when he told me what my gift was, I immediately jumped on Cloud 9 to schedule my lessons. I was afraid with such short notice, I wouldn't be able to fly on my birthday, but Ali was quick to reply and confirmed the date I requested. When I arrived at Genesis, everyone was very nice. Mick, my instructor was super nice and did a great job of walking me through the process. He was very calm which helped my nerves. I was excited and nervous at the same time, so it helped having someone so calm and professional with me. He was very patient and I learned a lot in such a short amount of time. My husband and 8 yr old son ended up flying with us so the whole family had a blast. It was the experience of a life time! I told my son, what other 8 yr can say he circled over our house and school over spring break? I would recommend Genesis to anyone wanting to seek flying lessons and ask for Mick!”
“Mic was a great instructor. I have some experience plying so he was able to adjust to my knowledge level and allow for me to do a more advanced flight instead of starting from square one. I really enjoyed this flight. Thank you !”
“Joe the instructor was both friendly and professional. The experience itself was a ton of fun. I actually hate filling out surveys, but wanted to give credit to Genesis Flight Academy (School?)”
“It was a great experience and a lot of fun. I may actually start taking flying lessons at my advanced age. Cory Reardon was friendly, helpful, and most of all, PATIENT. I highly recommend this as a gift.”
