Yesterday I went for a discovery flight to really see and get a feel for the whole flying experience and it’s safe to say it’s for me. I had Alex as an instructor and he was very professional. Everything was explained to me very well, as well as all of my questions were answered. Very good team, very good environment, very good experience hands down.
