WHY FLY WITH PILOT MAKERS?
Pilot Makers Advanced Flight Academy was established to bridge a deadly gap in pilot training.
In an era where a decline in solid stick-and-rudder education has led to fatal accidents, we tackle the root issue, addressing Loss of Control In Flight (LOC-I)—the number one cause of such incidents in both private and commercial aviation—by emphasizing stick-and-rudder skills, situational awareness, and a firm grasp of the comprehensive flight envelope. Our approach tackles and demystifies stalls, spins, and unusual attitudes, rather than avoiding them, utilizing specialized aircraft for a holistic training experience. By nurturing these proficiencies, our flight school develops confidence, expertise, and understanding, offering unparalleled instruction and an enjoyable training journey. Whether aspiring for a professional career or recreational flying, our training cultivates passionate, professional aviators.
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!
