I recently had the opportunity to experience a Discovery Flight with Essence flight in Los Angeles, and I am absolutely thrilled with how it went! From the moment I arrived, the staff were welcoming and thoroughly professional, ensuring I felt comfortable and informed every step of the way. The highlight was undoubtedly the flight itself. My instructor was knowledgeable and patient, explaining everything clearly and allowing me to take control of the aircraft under their guidance. The views of Los Angeles from above were simply breathtaking, and the thrill of flying was amazing

I have been on a journey of deciding if I want to become a private pilot but I had no prior experience or knowledge about flying, thanks to Essence flight school i got all of my questions answered, their team was extremely helpful and I was able to get a intro flight with them to see what does becoming a pilot feel like, my instructor was Alex he was great at explaining every step for me and teaching me how to to take control of the flight! I loved my experience. And this intro flight helped me make my decision on choosing my career in becoming a private pilot for now and maybe continuing to become a commercial pilot with them in the future.
