My 15 & 17 year old boys celebrated their birthdays flying a plane. How many kids can say the same. They absolutely loved it!

I learned So much! I literally think I had as much ‘stick time’ as my instructor. I get motion sickness pretty easy, so took 2 doses of medicine but with wind today, could just keep it under control. Even so, I will be doing this again!

Great experience, want to do it again! The only thing is that when I called to schedule the flight, wasn't offered the choice between a Piper or a Cessna, which I learnt later that it's a possible to choose one of two. Also, the Piper we flew was in really poor condition, both from the outside and inside.Looking around the parking lot, looked like all the other aircrafts looked better maintained.

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.
