Rule The Skies with All In Aviation Flight Experiences

Unique flight school will have you piloting a real aircraft in just one session

Las Vegas is the place where bucket-list dreams come true. From sunrise hot-air balloon rides over the desert to high-speed motor vehicle thrills if you can dream it, you can live it. For those who ve fantasized about flying over Vegas, a unique Vegas-based flight school will have you aloft and navigating in less than one hour.

All In Aviation is an innovative flight school that offers the ultimate in hands-on lessons. This is no 3D simulation or stuffy classroom experience. In one self-contained session, you ll take the pilot s seat of a Cirrus aircraft, radio the control tower for clearance, and rise high into the skies.

It s important to stress that All In Aviation is not a tour service but an actual, functioning school. They offer a variety of professional services from recurrent and emergency training to commercial pilot instruction. AIA is the only Cirrus Aircraft training partner in southern Nevada. Planes are available for hourly rental to qualified pilots and their AIA Club provides special discounts and VIP Concierge Service to members.

The only way to truly appreciate what AIA offers is to schedule a lesson for yourself. They have one location at North Las Vegas Airport and a large new facility in Henderson. This writer visited the state-of-the-art Henderson facility where I met with President and pilot/instructor Paul Sallach. Mr. Sallach led me through each step of the personalized flight from greeting to farewell.

Along for my inaugural flight were Tess Bridell, Director of Business Operations and Gina Yager, Head of Public Relations. The fact that these vital members of the All In Aviation team put their lives in my hands emphasizes the extreme safety protocols they observe and the stunning features of their Cirrus aircraft fleet.

The Cirrus line is the best-selling brand of private planes on the market. Built of lightweight composite material with large glass windscreens, Garmin navigation, plush leather seats, and air-conditioned cabins, the Cirrus are as comfortable as they are safe. What makes them especially unique is that each plane is equipped with a parachute that can lower it back to land after an unexpected mishap or emergency.

All In Aviation Take-off

All In Aviation‘s new Henderson complex is located in the shadow of the massive Las Vegas Raiders headquarters. This purpose-built structure is also home to Lone Mountain Aviation, AIA s business partner. Together, the two highly-respected businesses provide comprehensive services, training, education, instruction, and certification for pilots of every level along with complete maintenance and hangar storage for their aircraft and yours.

The partnership shares an airy, two-level lobby befitting an operation of this magnitude. Their reception desk is flanked by a Pilot Shop, the only retail space in the Valley dedicated to pilots, students, and flight enthusiasts. It carries authentic uniform apparel, handbooks, test preps, logbooks, headsets, mics, and other necessities. There are tongue-in-cheek novelty tees, polo shirts, and fun stuff for the kids, too.
