Private Pilot Training
Pilot Training Done Right
Making you a truly safe and competent pilot is our #1 goal for your flight training. We have developed our Private Pilot Course, which is unique in the industry, to give you the skills no other flight school can. We will make you a safer, more confident, and more capable pilot than any other private pilot training available anywhere. How do we do it? Our unique fleet of aircraft allows us to provide unprecedented exposure to skill and confidence building lesson plans. Not only do you learn how to fly in the legendary Cessna 172 with an upgraded 195hp engine, but you also receive 10 hours of tailwheel flying in our Super Decathlon and Pitts S2C to cover Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) and Spin Training.
We are the only flight school we know in the entire country to provide Upset Prevention and Recovery Training and Spin Training in our Private Pilot Syllabus. Why? Because of Loss Of Control – Inflight is the #1 cause of aviation fatalities, and we are committed to producing pilots that fully understand and are proficient in all possible flight attitudes. Our unique Private Pilot Course combined with our highly experienced and dedicated instructors will give you the skills no other flight school can, which will make you a safer, more confident, and more capable pilot than any other private pilot training available anywhere!
Training to the Next Level
Ready for the next step? Let’s just take it to the next level! Again using our unique assets we not only give you Instrument training with experienced instructors, but we also teach Instrument Upset Recovery in our Super Decathlon. Wake Turbulence Upset can happen just as easily in the clouds as on a nice VFR day. Learning how to recover from an upset on instruments can one day save your life. If it can happen to pilots flying commercial jets, it can happen to you. Not only will you get the instrument training in our simulator, but you will also get upset training in the sim, as well as on-aircraft upset recovery on instruments in the aircraft.
Upset Recovery Training
Learn how to fix bad attitudes – fast. Don’t let the first time you go inverted be close to the ground due to a wake vortex or unexpected severe turbulence. Our Upset Recovery and Spin Training courses are designed to give you confidence in handling your aircraft properly when those pressure situations hit. And it’s great fun!
