"One step closer to the real sky"
Airplane Training Courses

Get started with THE BASICS Course.
During this two-hour course you learn the basic flight maneuvers like flying level, turning, climbing, airspeed changes and descending.  Time permitting, you will also be guided to a landing by your instructor.

THE BASICS airplane course is only $79.00.  You can also add an additional 2 hours of simulator use to practice what you learned for only $40 more.
Take one or several mission based courses, like navigation and mountain flying. The courses are primarily designed to show you how much fun aviation is, but also what the challenges of aviation are. All courses are tailored for non-aviation experienced participants. You will learn the real world skills without the pressure and price tag of real flying.
