Our specialty is advanced-topic flight training.
But we do it all.
We offer Discovery Flights, Private Pilot courses, aircraft checkout and rental, tailwheel endorsements, and seaplane add-on ratings. We provide training for military aviators transitioning to general aviation.
Our team of professional flight instructors is here to make your training a safe and enjoyable experience. We have a breadth of experience in all types of aircraft from the venerable Cub to sailplanes, helicopters, seaplanes, multi-engine trainers and the turbine DC-3, unmanned systems, and military strike-fighter jets.
Apply for Training today to hold your spot in line and receive more information from the team. Reservations are required.
We offer training part-time and by appointment only. Due to our growing customer list, full-time jobs, restricted airspace, DPE availability, and other aviation-related challenges, we may not be able to fly with you right away. Please contact us for more information and we will make every effort to accommodate your training needs. Our rates are subject to change.
*** On hold until Spring 2024 ***
Earn your Private, Commercial, or ATP seaplane rating and become a proficient, competent seaplane pilot in a high-performance workhorse!
Our 2024 seaplane courses will be offered per-hour over the course of several days or two or more weekends. We do not offer 2-day courses.
For current, proficient pilots at the Commercial level, the training should take between 6 and 10 hours of dual instruction. For Private pilots, low-time, those needing complex and high-performance endorsements, or ATP ratings, please anticipate 10-15 hours of dual instruction.
DPE availability is a major factor in our availability, but we should be able to accommodate most weekends and some weekday Practical Tests.
Seaplane rates for 2024 will be adjusted with the acquisition and insurance for our Cessna A185F with factory-new PK 3050A floats. Prices will be updated ASAP.
The Cessna 140 is a great tailwheel trainer, with responsive controls and good field-of-view over the nose. Tailwheel endorsements usually take 4-6 hours over 3-4 flights for a current and proficient light-airplane pilot. You'll practice three point and wheel landings, and crosswind procedures at both grass and paved runways.
After your tailwheel endorsement or Cessna 140 checkout, we offer tailwheel training in a 1946 Piper J-3 Cub, equipped with a C-85. You will have more exposure to grass runways, hand-propping, the limited field-of-view from the rear seat, and tons of fun!
Cessna 140 and Piper Cub: $225 per flight hour. Includes airplane, fuel, and flight instructor. Ground school at $60 per hour.
