Starting Flight Instruction
Many people have an interest in learning to fly, but few take those crucial steps to actually start, and fewer still see it through to getting their Private Pilot Certificate! Getting to that level takes a commitment of time, money, and, most importantly, yourself! But we can help you through the process, as we have for so many others. And, as a "Part 61" school, we will do it on your schedule! Since we are not regimented like a university or "Part 141" school, we have the flexibility to help you be a pilot in as little or as much time as you need!
A Private Pilot Certificate isn't the end of your training! We offer instruction for further certificates and ratings, including Instrument, Multi-Engine, Commercial, Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) and Airline Transport Pilot (ATP), and can help you get your endorsements for tailwheel, complex, high-performance, and pressurized aircraft. And, if you need a flight review, an instrument proficiency check, or just want training in modern avionics like the Garmin G-1000, we can help you there, too!
Learning to fly helicopters is something that few do, but it brings great rewards. Your Helicopter Private Pilot Certificate is a great start, and we don't stop there!
There are a number of outside organizations and programs that can be of assistance to people interested in becoming a pilot. The Aircraft Owner's and Pilot's Association is a great resource, and offers a free six month membership, subscription to their AOPA Flight Training magazine and a lot of additional information at their Flight Training site.
First, there are loans available through Pilot Finance and other companies.
Wings of Hope is offering 2 transferable scholarships for flight training, along with 1 Cessna 150, as part of a raffle they're hosting.
The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) also has a number of scholarships available.
For more information on getting started in flight training or getting ongoing education, come in and talk with one of our professional flight instructors. We'll be happy to help you!
