Hear What Other
Pilots Have to Say

  • 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    “Lately, all sectors of the aviation industry have been criticized for unfriendly customer service and outdated aircraft and systems.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”

  • They are the only pros around teaching in the Cirrus. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

    “Mach 1 is a truly amazing and professional flying school. I have flown all over with many different instructors from Florida to NY to here in California. Jason the owner and his instructors have an extremely high level of competence but they also make the experience fun. In addition, I love flying out of Van Nuys it's a lot safer statistically than Santa Monica. The aircraft is really nice at Mach 1. They are the only pros around teaching in the Cirrus. I wouldn't go anywhere else.”

  • 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.”

  • 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!”

  • Now I can fly to any destination of my choosing. It’s hard to convey the excitement of being a pilot

    “When I came to Mach 1 for the first time all I could think is “I can’t believe I’m going to fly a plane!” When we lifted off the ground for the first time, I was amazed by Jason’s complete control of the plane. His confidence was so reassuring. I couldn’t wait for the day I could fly a plane with the same confidence. I now have that confidence. I will never forget the day of my first solo. There is no feeling like the first time I lifted off all by myself. All I could think as I was flying around the pattern is “oh god now I have to land”. When the wheels of the plane touched the ground I just wanted to scream with joy because I’d done it! I’m training full time to become an instructor and I fly every day. Every time the wheels touch the ground I still get the same feeling. Mach 1 is really making my dreams come true! I can fly solo and have now been granted my Private Pilot Certificate! Now I can fly to any destination of my choosing. It’s hard to convey the excitement of being a pilot. My training at Mach 1 has been amazing and so thorough. Just one flight with Jason in the Cirrus and I was hooked! I really never imagined how bad ass it would be!”
