WHY FLY WITH PILOT MAKERS?

WHY FLY WITH PILOT MAKERS?

Pilot Makers Advanced Flight Academy was founded to fill a deadly gap in pilot training.

Pilot Makers’ flight training focuses on stick and rudder skills, better situational awareness in all attitudes of flight, and understanding the entire flight envelope.

We take the mystery out of stalls, spins, upset events, and unusual attitudes in our pilot training. Our Private Pilot Syllabus will safely expose you to the entire flight envelope using planes designed specifically for that purpose. Pilot Makers’ flight school will increase your confidence, skill, and knowledge all through better stick and rudder skills. Not to mention the pure fun you’ll have while training!

Over the last 30 years, pilot training has gotten way from a solid stick and rudder education and the results are devastating. Loss of Control In Flight (LOC-I) is the number one cause of fatal accidents in both private and commercial aviation.

Too much of pilot training today focuses on avoiding stalls, spins, and upsets. But what happens when you find yourself in a spin?  Avoid it and fear it? Proper skill and preparation are crucial in those moments. Whether you want to be a professional pilot or just fly for fun, our training will make you a better pilot.

TESTIMONIALS

What our clients are saying

I truly appreciated Barry’s approach to aerobatic training in the Pitts – he is knowledgeable, experienced, calm and confident. Flying was hands-on from my first takeoff, and as a pilot that learns best from his own mistakes, (as opposed to watching countless demos from the instructor) adapting his teaching method to my style helped me gain confidence and experience quickly. If you’re looking for some fun flying from initial tail wheel to advanced aerobatics, look no further than Pilot Makers flight school!

Dave Bernard, ATP 737, 747

I’ve gotten many checkouts before in multiple aircraft, and never had the sense Barry was “hawking” the controls or was hesitant to let me explore the capabilities of the airplane. If flying a T-6, (or any of the other aircraft Barry offers training in) is your thing, I would highly recommend him.
