Are you already a certified pilot and coming up on your next flight review or instrument proficiency check? We can help you accomplish these goals. We also offer training for complex aircraft for those that wish to expand their knowledge and skills as a pilot.
Do you want to upgrade your flight experience to include complex aircraft? After training in our Piper Arrow IV, you will have the complex aircraft endorsement in your logbook. This will enable you to fly as pilot-in-command of airplanes with a constant-speed propeller, retractable landing gear, and adjustable flaps. This will also broaden your knowledge of advanced aircraft systems. If it is the commercial pilot certificate you are seeking, you may also train with us to build your required 10 hours of complex/technically advanced aircraft time.
The FAA requires that pilots obtain a flight review every 24 calendar months to remain safe and proficient. This consists of a minimum of an hour of ground and an hour of flight. Our FAA certified flight instructors are here to help you achieve this requirement in either our aircraft or yours. Our instructors also participate in the FAA's WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program and can fly with you to certify your flight credits in lieu of the traditional flight review. If you are coming up on your 24 months, or just want to shake off some rust, we can fly with you to bring you back up to speed into the world of aviation!
The FAA requires that instrument pilots fly 6 instrument approaches with holding, intercepting, and tracking courses every 6 months. After 6 months has elapsed, a safety pilot will be required. If, however, it has been a full year since your instrument experience expired, you must complete an instrument proficiency check. We have the resources to get this done for you efficiently. Our full-motion Redbird flight simulator enables you to complete an entire IPC except for a circle-to-land maneuver. After the simulator, you will fly with an instructor to complete that final maneuver and reset your currency.
