Next up, you and your instructor will board the Guimbal and share the 2 seat cockpit. As you take off towards Chicago’s breathtaking skyline, your instructor will turn over the controls to you to complete your in flight experience over the city. The total experience is approximately 1 hour and includes 30 minute pre flight review and instruction and 20-30 minutes in flight.
