  • The Mach 1 Staff are incredibly helpful.

    “Flying was the thing I hated most. Put me in any plane and I would panic – so therefore, we drove – or we didn’t go. Randy put up with me – but his dream was to fly his own plane. He thought that was just a dream until one day, a friend showed us his Cirrus and explained all the safety features, such as the parachute and took us to the airport to see his plane. It looked and felt like an expensive sports car and the parachute made me very comfortable. Luckily I was referred to Jason Price – who was just forming Mach 1 Aviation, who took us up for a flight. I felt very safe with Jason’s expertise (as well as his patience) – so much so, that I decided to give it a try and take lessons. Randy was in heaven (no pun intended) and signed us both up. I formed a trust for “my teacher” Jason, that really surprised me, and I have amazed myself and everyone who knows me. I actually enjoy flying now – Jason is an incredible instructor – patient, talented, skilled and intuitive. The Mach 1 Staff are incredibly helpful – the relaxed yet professional atmosphere suits us perfectly. Last week, Randy & I (with Jason as our Pilot) said our vows and were wed about 4,500 feet over Malibu Beach, in the back seat of the Cirrus we are training in. A beautiful memory – and a beautiful beginning. Thanks Jason and Mach 1 Aviation!”

  • Professional, knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend both Jason and Mach 1.

    “I have a heavy background in Customer Service (Disney) and can easily distinguish between those who do their job for money vs. those who do it for passion. Jason is definitely the latter. Professional, knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend both him and Mach 1.”

  • My wings and license are not only backed by my hard work but also by all those at Mach 1 who sat in the right seat and taught me how to fly. I am lucky and privileged to be a part of the Mach 1 Aviation family

    “Lately, all sectors of the aviation industry have been criticized for unfriendly customer service and outdated aircraft and systems. Fortunately, this stereotype is not every passenger or pilot’s reality; Mach 1 Aviation proves that businesses operating in the skies can actually be friendly. When I made the decision to go ahead and get my Private Pilot License, Mach 1 struck me as the perfect group to work with. It is important to understand that all flight schools offer the same foundation: a plane to train in. The Cirrus aircraft parked on the flight line certainly were an enticing foundation, but when making a flight school choice the decision came down to the people. Mach 1’s “secret sauce” is not so much a secret but rather a rarity in today’s world; above and below the wing they have a great team. Jason and the entire Mach 1 family helped me earn my license on budget and ahead of schedule- try getting that kind of service from a large, national flight school. Coming out of Private Pilot training and moving into my next chapter, Instrument Certification, I do not feel like a product fresh off a conveyor belt but rather a pilot who can wear his wings proudly. My wings and license are not only backed by my hard work but also by all those at Mach 1 who sat in the right seat and taught me how to fly. I am lucky and privileged to be a part of the Mach 1 Aviation family”

  • Luxury, reliability, safety and most important, a lot of fun.

    “When it was time to upgrade to glass cockpits and luxury aircraft, Mach 1 Aviation was my obvious choice. The cool thing about this operation is that it’s a boutique family run business located inside one of the most prestigious FBO chains in the country and on Van Nuys Airport which is one of the most busiest GA airports in the country. This combination gives you the best of both worlds, personalized customer service (they truly care about you) and world class FBO treatment along with awesome ramp personell [sic]. I got my private pilot’s license at Mach 1 in 2009 and I loved every second of the journey….yes, the Cirrus SR-20 is an expensive aircraft to train in, but you get what you pay for, luxury, reliability, safety and most important, a lot of fun. After all, this is a luxury business, you might as well go all out if you really want to train in a cool airplane. Over time, they’ve expanded and catered to a clientele that is looking for more affordable solutions, by providing a line of single engine Cessnas that range from under $100 to the mid buck fifty. Pretty good price for the latter since it comes with a glass cockpit. Good instructors, good service, good establishment…and the best part of all…..once you get your license, if you wanna show up at 3AM and fly one of their airplanes……you can, because the FBO is open all around the clock. Just make sure you have an account on file and you’re good to go!”

  • You couldn’t ask for a better school, aircraft, facility and staff.

    “I got my PPL ticket at Fly Mach 1 Aviation. This is the best flight school in the LA/Ventura area. Before Fly Mach 1 I cycled through at least seven flight instructors as a student. I started at a different school at Van Nuys in a Cessna 172. My initial instructor quit. Then I bounced around a few of the school’s newbie CFIs. I moved to a Cirrus school which no longer exists and was left high and dry just post solo. I felt that school was just cashing in on my instruction hours they went belly up. I found Fly Mach 1 owner Jason Price. He salvaged a bad situation and helped me get my private pilot license. I’m sure Fly Mach 1 Aviation would recognize this review. I’d be happy to speak in detail with anyone who is considering Fly Mach 1 Aviation. They can get you in touch with me via email. You couldn’t ask for a better school, aircraft, facility and staff. I have the picture, adventures and lifelong memories to prove it. Fly safe!”
