Absolutely amazing flight school. First of all they offer full financing option for all the training, there are few options to choose from, I think they go can finance up to 15 years. I did my private and multi engine training and financed the program for 5 years. I am about to finish my private pilot and start my multi engine program. Great airplanes, I did my private in the Diamond airplanes, they have two of them, and my multi engine is going to be in the Seminole.

Professional, fun, amazing institution! As a doctor I was looking for a hobby to escape from my daily stresses. Flying was one of my options, but I wasn’t very serious about it. I don’t choose anything lightly without thorough research and my gut feeling. I went to Essence flight after visiting few other schools just to get some information. From the first moment that I met the staff, their planes, facility and the simulators, I knew I have found the school and the hobby was looking for. From the very first flight my instructor allowed me to control the plane by myself and I fell in love with flying! All stresses and life-issues remain on the ground when you are up there! Essence staff and specially my instructor Alex are wonderful! Thoughtful, professional, safe, and simply amazing… Going above and beyond to make you a safe pilot. Words cannot describe my experience. I tend to get distracted a lot during my initial landings from the conversations on the radio. In order to alleviate this problem, my instructor started to play Chinese radio during my landings to teach me to block out the radio distractions! I mean who does that!!!!!! I already solo’ed flying the plane by myself only after few short months and I am on my way to get my private license. I feel very confident landing on my own and I owe this to Essence flight and my wonderful instructor. I highly highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional flight school!

I just got back from my discovery flight with Joseph. I can say it was nothing less than amazing. Joseph was very informative and passionate about flying and aviation in general. I can see myself in the future pursuing a career in aviation thanks to Joseph and the people at essence flight academy.

My experience with the Discovery Flight school was nothing short of exhilarating. As someone who has always been fascinated by aviation but never quite took the leap into flying, this introductory flight was the perfect opportunity to satisfy my curiosity and delve into the world of piloting. From the moment I arrived at the airport, the professionalism and enthusiasm of the pilot and staff were evident. They guided me through a brief but comprehensive pre-flight briefing, explaining the basics of the aircraft and what to expect during the flight. Safety protocols were clearly emphasized, which immediately put me at ease and assured me of their commitment to a secure and enjoyable experience. Once we boarded the aircraft, I was struck by the pilot's skill and confidence. Throughout the flight, they seamlessly balanced giving me the opportunity to take the controls and experience the thrill of flying firsthand, while also showcasing their expertise through smooth maneuvers and clear communication with air traffic control. The scenery from above was breathtaking; seeing familiar landmarks from a new perspective was a highlight of the flight. The pilot's narration added depth to the experience, pointing out interesting features and sharing insights into flying techniques and navigation. What stood out most was the Alex's (pilot) passion for aviation. Their love for flying was infectious, and it made me appreciate the art and science of piloting even more. When some pilots try to make it over complicate it, Alex simplified and made us feel comfortable. They patiently answered all my questions and encouraged me to explore further if I wanted to pursue flight training. Overall, my Discovery Flight Pilot experience was unforgettable. It was not just a flight; it was an introduction to a whole new world of possibilities. Whether you're a novice like me or someone considering aviation as a career, I highly recommend this program as a perfect first step into the skies.

Last minute booking to surprise my wife on our honeymoon. She had no experience with flying and was scared of flying, but Alex was very easygoing and knew how to make her enjoy her first flight. Highly recommend flight school.
