This is my first review on yelp, but I had such an amazing flight, I just had to write a review. If you want the best pilot, ask for Andre Malloy. I've always dreamed of flying a plane, and Andre is the best pilot and teacher anyone could ask for. He made me and my girlfriend feel safe, comfortable, and confident. His knowledge of flight is impeccable. He was in the Air Force, and it shows. I'm now on my way to getting my pilots license, and I can't wait for my next flight with Andre!

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!

We flew so close to the Hollywood sign it was crazy. Then right down the center of Dodgers Stadium, downtown LA, Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, and Malibu. He also pointed out all of the cool houses such as Mel Gibsons (no he wasn't beating anyone outside). He also had me fly over some mountains so I could see how turbulence affected the plane. Pretty sweet stuff. He landed, and I got the steer the plane down the runway. He didn't try to push any lessons on us or anything. Great sense of humor and just a nice dude. All 20-something of him. Couldn't have asked for a better guide.

We are absolutely thrilled by how professional and sharp Encore is as a flight school. They provide gracious and impeccable services that would impress a picky customer like me. I overcame my fear for flying with Encore's Diamond aircraft and simulator... thank you very much!

I took my wife on a one-hour sightseeing flight for her birthday and it was fantastic! We took off from Van Nuys, flew past the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory, past Dodger Stadium, and then west over the Santa Monica pier and Point Dume to watch the sun sink below the horizon. The pilot, Kyle, was very friendly and a great guide, too, and the plane was comfortable.

Had my very first flight class today.  My girlfriend surprised me my birthday.  I was literally blindfolded and driven to the location - totally clueless.  I had an amazing experience.  Everything from the friendly staff, to our flight instructor to the flight trainer (Ryan - great guy!), to the simulator - down to the take-off, flight and landing.  AMAZING.  I decided that I'm hooked.  I'll be a certified pilot before long... Thanks to Encore Fight Academy for a great experience.  I'll be sure to tell my friends and you can count on seeing me on the tarmac again soon.

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.
