Primary Pilot Training

The fundamentals of great flying lie in a solid understanding of the airplane and exceptional stick-and-rudder skills. Our instructional approach is based on mastery of these skills, and our primary trainer, the Cessna 172, is the most popular GA aircraft ever made.

Our training is flexible and designed around the way you learn best. Ground instruction in preparation for the FAA knowledge test can be done via self-study, or in one of our classroom-based Private Pilot ground courses. If you already have some flying experience–even if that was long ago–we specialize in finish-ups and we’d love to help you accomplish your aviation goals.
