My experience at Lani Lea flight school was amazing! Natalie and Lindsey really made a fun and comfortable environment at the school. Natalie (my instructor) was very fun and professional to fly with! Lindsey was also amazing and helped me with anything I needed. One of the best thing was that the flight schedule was flexible and they were able to adjust for me. The facilities and aircraft were also very nice and well maintained. I have nothing but good things to say about this place, really look forward coming back to Hawaii and flying there again!!

Everything I did over at Lani Lea was major. Great instructors, Kai and Natalie do amazing getting the information you need stuck in your head and fast. If you wanna be a pilot and you’re from Hawaii you know where to go. #majah

Awesome experience! I only had 34 hrs of flight time, and hadn't flown in 4 1/2 years. 9 days later and only 13 hrs with Lani Lea, and I'm now a confident private pilot. Prices are great, plane was well maintained, and the staff went above and beyond to help me though every step. Would highly recommend flying with Kai or Natalie!

Awesome place to take flight lessons. I stopped working on my pilots license years ago and they helped me get back up to speed and pass my exams in 8 days and 13 hrs of training. No other school in the area seemed interested in taking on the challenge but Lani Lea went above and beyond and did it under budget and under time. Worth the trip from Australia and will definitely be coming back.

The instructors were all incredibly professional, but still laid back. I had a lot of fun flying around the island and seeing all the amazing sights. Kiana took over from time to time to allow me to safely take pictures and ensured we stayed "on course", especially as we transitioned through the handful of airspaces around Oahu. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Lani Lea. The rates were very reasonable and they have a nice facility. I'll definitely fly with them again next time I'm on the island.

I have been flying here since I started my training back in May. Their facility, instructors, and planes are excellent.
