Our Instructors

"A good instructor is confident and calm and lets the student fly. A good student comes prepared, listens, and ask questions. We should be good [pilots] - safe, knowledgeable, proficient, prepared, and confident." Mark Twombly, AOPA Pilot, Feb 2007

We subscribe to this philosophy: Our instructors are available seven days and evenings a week to fit YOUR schedule. We are committed to you; not about building hours. Our Instructors include former school teacher, business owner and airline pilot, and a former Test Pilot and current Corporate Pilot.

We teach because we love to do it. Our Office Number is 715-294-4500
