Our instructors are always learning!

We believe that as our instructors continue to grow, learn and excel in their field we all benefit from their success. This past month, Elayne got her Commercial Glider rating! This training definitely helps with teaching simulated engine out situations. Learning how to "read" the clouds and get the best lift to glide the farthest possible.


Welcome our Newest Instructors to Join Us for 2024

As a successful and growing flight school, we continually have flight instructors that spend about a year with us getting their required 1,000 - 1,500 hours and then they go on to the Regional airlines. Over the past 3 months, 5 of our instructors moved on to other careers. We are so pleased to have 6 new instructors join our team. This past month, we had a great team building day going to the US Army helicopter simulators (Chinook, Apache & Blackhawk) and then over to the Fayetteville Tower for a tour of their ATC facilities. We are looking forward to a great year in 2024!
