"My wife bought me a lesson for my birthday. I had never been in a small plane before, and was nervous prior to getting there. Once i got there and met the staff i felt reassured that i was going to be in good hands. The flight Instructors were very experienced and have a lot of information to offer. I felt very comfortable never being in a small plane before. Great experience, now I'm thinking about getting my license."

"My boyfriend has wanted to fly since childhood. He started out at a New Jersey airport that was congested, expensive and inconvenient location wise. We looked around and found Take Flight at the Orange County airport. Everyone is friendly and accomodating. The instructors know their stuff. His check flight is next week and we're both super excited! Check them out if you're thinking about flying."

"I've been looking for a new rental place since I moved away from my old one. I can finally afford to rent and I found this place. I had about 2 hours of Diamond single time, and I haven't flown a GA aircraft for about 2 years. Take Flight took me from "zero to hero" quickly, cheaply, and safely. To tip it all off, their aircraft are outfitted with the modern avionics I am used to, which definitely moved the process along. I'll be renting from here more after this experience."

"Great School! I'm a rookie student pilot and the folks at Take Flight have made me feel safe and welcome from day one. My instructor Mike is calm, cool, and knowledgable. I'm going to be a rookie for a long time, but I feel like I'm getting a great education. This is a family run, friendly school with kind and knowledgable staff, instructors, and mechanics. The airplane I'm training in is a Diamond 40, which is a modern and well maintained aircraft. They have different kinds of aircraft here, as well as a simulator for those foul weather days. Safety is my biggest concern as a student pilot. The more I train with Take Flight Aviation, the more my safety fears dissipate and I focus on the task of becoming a safe Pilot."

"I needed to sell my light twin and Ryan and the staff at Take Flight took care of me like I was one of their regular customers. I felt like they really prioritized my needs. My plane was prepped, annuelled as per buyer's request, and the complex transaction that is an aircraft sale was made seamless. I was also impressed with their modern rental fleet and facilities at the growing Orange County Airport. They are my first stop when I need to rent in the future."
