Andre, our Captain, was awesome! He guided us through our flight over L.A. He was quick to ease any anxiety and make it a comfortable, safe, fun and informative experience. 5 stars all the way. Great customer service, great experience, definitely a must do in L.A. After flying all around the world in commercial planes this was the first time I actually felt I was "flying". Cannot wait to do it again!

My boyfriend has been taking flying lessons at Encore Flight School and he absolutely loves their program; he is almost done with completing the course to get his license. Last month , my boyfriend flew us to Catalina Island with Alex's ( the instructor) supervision and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had . FYI , I am absolutely terrified of flying and I would refuse traveling because I am so scared of heights and flying ; however , I couldn't believe how comfortable and safe I felt during the flight . Alex , the instructor , appeared very experienced . He is so knowledgable and he makes you feel very comfortable . A true professional ... If you are looking for taking flying lessons whether for pleasure or possibly as a career , I would HIGHLY recommend Encore Flight School . They have very reasonable prices for different packages ; They definitely would exceed your expectations.

Alex is absolutely amazing! Highly recommended. They have really great airplanes, and flight simulators. I have been a customer my here for while now and I have nothing but good things to say about them. I signed up for the private pilot course, I got the full package, it came with all the books and the reading materials. I think I have total of 50 hours of flight time in my program. They have excellent customer service, place give them a visit and ask for Alex, he will give you a your and really take care of you.
