Our experience was awesome!!!!!!! Our instructor,Jask, was very knowledgeable, cognizant of our comfortability, and a good conversationalist. We were able to have 15/20 minutes of hands on flying time each. (2 Groupons purchased) View was beautiful and weather perfect. Thank you for a great experience Jask!!!

This experience was truly worth the money! The whole in-flight experience was absolutely thrilling and our flight instructor, Or, made it a memorable experience with her easy manner and expertise. Scheduling a session was quite easy. Even though, we had to reschedule once due to poor weather, the staff was very courteous and accommodating throughout the process. Highly recommend trying this out!

About Washington International Flight Academy

For more than 20 years, the FAA-certified flight instructors at Washington International Flight Academy have safely guided pupils skyward and imbued them with the skills necessary for numerous licenses and certifications. Under an instructor's watchful eye, guests control a Cessna 172 on a 30-minute airborne trek during discovery flights, which can later be applied toward courses for a private or commercial pilot’s license with optional multiengine rating. A commercial pilot’s license qualifies more seasoned flyers for instructor certification, where they learn how to teach essentials, including how to tell the difference between a landing airplane and a diving roc.

Along with in-depth courses, Washington International Flight Academy accommodates patrons with rentals of its massive fleet, charts and piloting supplies from its fully stocked shop, and lodging for out-of-state students.
