Feel the adrenalin rush as you take the controls of a light plane and soar across the sky.
Experience the joys of flying a light aircraft with one of Chicago's leading flight schools as you enjoy an outstanding 90 minute extended flying lesson that puts you in control. You'll be guided every step of the way by an experienced and knowledgeable FAA certified instructor, who will show you everything from pre-flight checks to the effects of control.
In this extended flying lesson, you'll be totally immersed in the world of flying as you are asked to do everything a real pilot does. From the pre-flight taxi down the runway to take off, in flight maneuvers to speaking with the control tower, you'll be living the pilot's dream.
This is the ideal way to introduce yourself to flying. But be warned, it's 100 percent addictive!
You should be aged 12 or over (under 18’s need parental/guardian consent) and taller than 4’10". The prices listed are for the Cessna C-150 Commuter.
If you would like upgrade to the larger, more comfortable Cessna 172, please call our Customer Service and $50 can be added for the flight voucher. The upgrade is required if the student is over 6 feet tall or 200 pounds.

Throughout your lesson, your instructor will guide you all the way. You will be told how to perform each maneuver as required, however it will be your hands on the controls! Every lesson is tailored to your requirements and skill level.
I have an awesome time!!!! I would recommend this to anyone as a great alternative gift especially, for a Dad who is tried of getting ties and shirts for father's day. I honestly did not expect to actually experience flying the plane. I assumed I would be mostly watching. With the instructors help, I was able to take off, fly around and do touch & goes. More fun than I expected.
