Our Aircraft

We are pleased to announce that we have added a brand new airplane to our fleet. N164VR is a Vashon Ranger R7. Wow, is it a fun airplane to fly!

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk has been the world's leading training aircraft for 40 years. Our Skyhawk has been lovingly cared for and upgraded with some of the most advanced avionics available in a general aviation airplane.

Flight Training


Your flight training plan will be tailored to meet your aviaion goals.  We believe that solid stick and rudder skills are essential for all pilots and will help you build those skills from your first lesson.  

As your skills improve and you are ready for more aviation adventures, we offer unique opportunities to fly anywhere in the U.S. Our training adventures routinely include flights from SW Florida all the way to Oregon.  Talk about a real cross-country experience.
