Welcome to Flying where the sky is truly the limit!
Today there are thousands of people, just like you, learning to fly. They come from all walks of life and have a variety of reasons for wanting to be a pilot. Some fly to expand business opportunities. Others to explore careers in the aviation industry. Some are looking for an activity they can share with family and friends. And, some just for personal fun and satisfaction. Whatever your reason, learning to fly is a lot easier than you might think.
Start flying right away
You can start your flight instruction right away. You will be studying the regulations, principles of flight, navigation and other subjects to prepare for an FAA knowledge exam. At the same time you will be flying with your flight instructor where you learn and demonstrate your skills as a pilot.
Our pilot training program will provide insights that makes flying simple, safe and fun. Learn to fly in an environment where communicating with air traffic control becomes second nature.
During this time you will need to pass a simple medical exam to insure you can perform the duties of a “pilot in command”. Finally, a check ride with FAA examiner leads to your private pilot certificate.
Flying opens a whole new world to enjoy
Traveling around the country as your own pilot gives you the opportunity to visit many places in one day or a weekend. It frees more of your time for business or pleasure. Piloting your own plane also makes the commute fun! No traffic (as in a car), no hassles (as a commercial flight). With flying, it is not only faster, the scenery is usually breathtaking.
What will I learn?
Every single time you fly is a unique experience. You will learn about navigation, weather and aerodynamics.
