An introductory flight introduces you to what it is like to fly an airplane. You will receive a general overview on how the aircraft flies and is controlled. You will also be given the opportunity to take the controls under the guidance of an experienced flight instructor. Come and experience the thrill of flying for yourself!
A US private pilot's license never expires, but you do lose currency. The recurring training requirement is in 14 CFR 61.56: you must pass a flight review every two years, which consists of a minimum of one hour ground school and one hour in the air with an instructor.
Instrument pilots looking to regain their instrument flying privileges are required to pass an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) in accordance with FAR 61.57.
Come learn the world of aviation and become a pilot. Our flight instructors will guide you through all the necessary training and skills needed for you to receive your pilot certificate. We also offer further training for those who wish to continue on in their aviation training with an instrument rating or commercial license. Both Part 61 or Part 141 Pilot Training is available.
Our flight school and instructors encourage pilots to participate in the Wings Pilot Proficiency Program.

The knowledge test is an important part of the certification process. Applicants must pass the knowledge test before taking the practical test.
An applicant who chooses to take the knowledge test for an sUAS rating must successfully pass the knowledge test, and make an application via the Integrated Airman Certification and Rating Applicant (IACRA) web site. (The Resource Link page offers study guides for this training.)
