Three students are stepping out of their day-to-day lives for a one-week adventure at Sun ’n Fun in Lakeland, Florida, that could take them to new heights—learning how to fly! Instructors from award-winning flight schools will take these students from zero flight experience to ready to solo through an intense seven-day training period that includes nine training sessions in Redbird simulators and nine flight lessons in refurbished diesel-powered RedHawk Cessna 172s. Flying out of Plant City Airport just west of Sun ’n Fun, the students will get an assist from celebrity flight instructors throughout the week to help them overcome challenges such as stalls and landings and stay motivated through the process.
