Welcome to our latest video where we dive into the exciting world of flight training and the journey of becoming a pilot. The process of building a student pilot up is a step-by-step process, where with each flight lesson, the necessary skills and mindset are added to make you a safe aviator.

In this video, we take you along with Sienna, a student pilot who has been eagerly awaiting her flight training. Not only does she want to learn to fly, but she also wants to capture some amazing senior photos with a breathtaking backdrop. She gets her wish, as she takes to the skies with her trusted Cessna 172, accompanied by her flight instructor.

Together, they fly to Seldovia, a small Alaskan village near the flight school, where Sienna will face a challenging but exciting flying experience. This airport is surrounded by trees and terrain and requires precise flying, making it a perfect training ground for a student pilot in only their 5th lesson.

The lessons learned in this video are truly incredible and showcase the skills required to fly a plane. With the trees surrounding the airport and the small strip, Sienna is able to put into practice everything she’s learned so far, and it’s a beautiful sight to see.

So join us as we explore the art of flying, and watch Sienna as she takes her first steps towards becoming a pilot. Whether you’re interested in learning to fly yourself, or simply curious about what goes into pilot training, this video is sure to inspire and educate you. From stick and rudder control to online ground school, we cover it all.
