Learn To Fly
Learning to fly is one of the most rewarding, exhillerating, and deliberate recreational training most of us will ever have the pleasure of participating in. It's so exciting to strap in, complete your checklist, taxi out to the runway and push that thrust lever forward as we rocket into the wild blue yonder. Learning to fly is also a no non-sense adventure where you are taught more or less how to avoid disaster while becoming an "ace pilot". The FAA pilot training directives are very specific about flight training and like us has a goal of ultimately promoting aviation and safety at each of our airports, especially in the Orlando - Central Florida aviation communities. Take a Discovery flight and see if flying is for you.

So why Light Sport ?
Light Sport Aircraft are one of the greatest innovations in general aviation since Orville and Wilbur Wright first flew in Kittyhawk so many years ago. The Light Sport Aircraft or SLSA began it's debut when the FAA approved the manufacture of SLSA (Special Light Sport Aircraft) utilizing the ASTM standards for manufacturing. Light Sport aircraft offer students, and licensed pilots incredibly economic and innovative options for their flights and flight training. Light sport aircraft can be used for almost all of your flight training and recreation needs and desires.
The FAA has established very basic guidelines for each flight training program and that is the program that most flight schools offer in their advertised pricing. There are many factors to consider as you begin your sport pilot or private pilot training, and cost should be the last factor considered, and value should be your primary focus as you begin your journey and your research. To get the maximum value in safety and pilot training available it is usually best to set aside an hour or more to meet with a couple of flight schools in the area and discover the value of that flight schools programs and instructor expertise. We also can help you avoid the pitfalls of flying with "time building'' instructors and help you discover how to maximize your training dollars if you are flying with one now. Our goal is to transform Sport and Private Pilot aviation training into an incredibly fun, safe and exciting environment for you.
