Getting Started Right Now

Have you ever been in a plane other than a commercial airliner? It is an amazing experience to be in a light plane; an experience that has driven the passion of pilots across the world from the Wright brothers through to the aerobatic pilots of today. Getting started is easy, we have introductory packages that cost as little as $99 that get you in the air with one of our experienced pilots.

The process from there is straight forward, with one-on-one training with an experienced instructor. The instructor will help you from the very beginning, helping you understand the theory of flight and training you in the principles and concepts of piloting. But, don't worry - from your very first flight you will be at the controls and each lesson you will be gaining practical experience and confidence with the instructor by your side - until you go solo!

When you are ready, you'll be testing with the FAA - and when you pass you will be a licensed pilot. You will be experienced in using navigational instruments, flight planning, night flight, and safe flying practices. Ready to go on trips around the region with friends and family - rent one of our planes and go out for the weekend; it's like nothing else.

Taking it further

If you're not satisfied with just a private pilots license we can train you to be get your Instrument License. If you're planning a cross-country trip, you may run into bad weather (nothing to do with precipitation - everything to do with visibility). Unless you are Instrument Licensed you may not be able to fly through it. Your private license will cover you for most days, but for our more advanced students we offer advanced licenses programs.
