Hear From Our Students

  • "2GC has a real sense of community and is full of great people. I learned how to fly here when I was sixteen and have loved it ever since." - Jake P., Commercial Student
  • "I originally started my flight training at a business-oriented flight school. But after coming here, I learned aviation is so much more of a community-driven hobby. This place is a great place to fly, learn, and just hang out." - Josh B., Commercial Student
