Learning to fly is a lot easier than people think. Today there are thousands of people joining flying groups for pleasure.

Safety First

Safety is the foundation of flight training with current new aircraft engineered and built to rigid standards and are constantly checked to make certain they’re always airworthy.

Also new technology, like GPS (Global Positioning System), makes navigation safer than ever. Innovations in weather tracking radar and radio communications, make today’s aircraft one of the safest vehicles ever invented.

Decision Time
Once you’ve made the decision, it’s time to begin training. Pilot training consists of both ground and flight courses which cover flight rules and regulations, flight planning, navigation, radio procedures and weather. In order to receive your certificate, you must pass the written exams (rules and regulations) set by the school and then the fun part  starts . Payments for part-time training are at the end of each lesson, usually an hour in the air which makes budgeting easer. We also have credit card facilitys avalible.

Imagine flying to a nearby country town for breakfast or lunch you can even taking your friends (or family) on a weekend getaway, traveling at more than twice the speed of a car. Flying is fun! You decide where you’re going, when you want to arrive and when to return. And there are more than 5,300 airports across the country in communities just like yours…just waiting for your arrival!
