Welcome to Pilot Makers Advanced Flight Academy

Expanding your confidence, expanding your skill, and expanding your fun.



Pilot Makers Advanced Flight Academy was founded to take the mystery out of unusual attitudes, spins, and upset events. By safely exposing you to the entire flight envelope using planes designed for that purpose, we will increase your confidence, skill and fun through better stick and rudder skills.

Loss of Control In Flight (LOC-I) has been on the rise in both commercial and private aviation. Too much of pilot training today focuses on avoiding stalls, spins, and upsets. But what happens when you find yourself in a spin if you are only taught to avoid it, or fear it?

Our S2C is the latest in a long list of superlative designs by Mr. Pitts and is a delight to fly. Come get your advanced tailwheel instruction in our Pitts S2C by d.

Super Decathlon

The Super Decathlon, or "Super D" is a two-seat conventional gear aerobatic trainer capable of performing all basic aerobatic maneuvers, including sustained inverted flight. This is the plane for basic aerobatics and basic spins including CFI spin endorsements. It is the gateway to the Pitts advanced spin and competition aerobatics. It is also a perfect for our warbird aerobatics course with a slower roll rate and an hourly rate that won't break the bank.

Boeing Stearman

​The Stearman (Boeing) Model 75 is a biplane used as a military trainer aircraft before, during, and after WWII. Today this venerable legend of the skies is still a popular warbird and sport aircraft. Our completely restored Stearman has a 300hp Continental motor making it suitable for higher altitude operations. This is a fantastic experience to fly around the towering Wasatch Mountains in an open air cockpit while learning the ins and outs of radial engined biplane flying.

T-6 Texan

​The North American Aviation T-6 Texan is a single- engined advanced trainer aircraft used to train pilots of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF), United States Navy, Royal Air Force and other air forces of the British Commonwealth during World War II and into the 1970s..
