Discovery Flight Customer Uros

I went up with Dan Adler for an hour, and it was one of the best hours of my life!!! He was so easygoing, and supportive, and made it his goal to make sure I was completely comfortable the entire time!! I genuinely could not have asked for a better experience (especially since it was my first time!) He deserves 200 stars!! Would definitely fly with him again!!

Dan the flight instructor was very professional, patient, and informative. I would highly recommend this organization.

Discovery Flight Customer Liliana

Dear Dan (Adler), I wanted to thank you for giving me the best and most thorough BFR I ever had. Despite me having over 4,000 hours of flying, you still gave me a lot to think about, especially on the safety and ADM side of things. Thank you!

Hello Debbie,

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for making my Thanksgiving weekend great by helping me get back in the air. Also wanted to tell you that Cody Gamble is a great instructor. He was a perfect fit for me and a joy to fly with. N92428 is such a nice airplane.

I will be coming back out for Christmas and plan to stay until after the 1st of the year so I hope to get a couple more flights in and get my biennial completed.

Thank you very much.

Jeff G.
