Thinking of learning to fly? We would love to teach you!
We have two types of aircraft to train in-- a low wing Piper Warrior and
a high wing Cessna 172. Both aircraft have newly overhauled engines and
propellers. The Warrior has a brand new interior. The Cessna has a built
in GPS with moving map and an autopilot. Both are excellent for primary
flight training and cross country flights.
We offer on-line scheduling so you can book your aircraft and instructor
at your convenience. Or, if you prefer, you can call us to book your
next flight lesson with a live person. We have flexible flight training
hours and work hard to accommodate your schedule.
If you're not ready to jump right in with flight instruction, then how
about an Introductory Flight Lesson? We will take you
flying for about 40 minutes and you will actually get to fly the
airplane! You can look around and get comfortable with your new
environment and decide if this is for you.
Gift certificates are available for flight instruction.

Time Required to Obtain Your Pilot Certificate
While only 40 hours of flight time are required
for the private pilot certificate, the actual process takes longer due

14.5 to 16 hours -- Presolo (dual)
2.0 to 5 hours -- Solo
5.0 to 7 hours -- Precross-country (dual)
5.5 to 9 hours -- Cross-country and night flying (dual)
7.0 to 8 hours -- Cross-country (solo)
7.0 to 10 hours -- Prep for flight test (dual and solo)
41.0 to 55 hours

full-time effort. A more realistic timeframe is 6 months, but you will
