How can I
Give us a call!
We will be more then happy to get the prop spinning on your
start to aviation. We can schedule you a Discovery Flight as
early as the next day and, on occasion, the same day.
What does it take
to get a pilot's license?
Obtaining a private pilot certificate requires, under part
61 of the Federal Aviation Regulations, 40 minimum hours of
flight time. Within those 40 hours, a multitude of things
must be met including cross country flight time, night
flying, solo flying, training, an FAA written exam, as well
as an oral and practical exam with an FAA examiner. For
more information visit the
web page as well as
AOPA's Let's Go
introductory or "discovery" flights exempt from the
requirements of the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) rule
to verify citizenship and residency?
Yes. TSA has stated through
(Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association)
that introductory, discovery or demonstration flights
are exempt from the requirements of the TSA rule. However,
AOPA suggests that you not log the flight time in a logbook
until the CFI can verify citizenship.
Are there any
additional fees added to the rental rate of the aircraft?
Sales taxes and fuel surcharges. Our fuel
surcharge fluctuates with the rising, and lowering cost of
fuel. All training flights/ground lessons that include an instructor will
have the instructor cost ($45/hr) added. If paying by credit
card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, etc...) a 4% merchant
transaction fee will be added to your invoice; this fee is
higher for AMEX customers. To avoid this fee you may pay by
cash, check, or debit card in lieu of credit cards.
Do you sell
sell gift certificates for any amount that you desire. They
may be used for any item we sell, or any services that we
offer. This includes
lessons, pilot apparel,
or just a single flight if you so choose. Give us a call and
we will set you up with a gift certificate!
