What equipment and supplies do I need for flight training?
After you have committed to doing more than a couple lessons, preferably you should have your own headset. However we provide rental headsets at no charge. You will also eventually need study materials which can be obtained at your discretion. These include a VNC and ICAO ruler at minimum which we can provide at a standard cost. Books will also be required. Ex. "From The Ground Up”, “How to become a pilot ver 5” etc.

Can I film my flight?
Yes, we have an onboard GoPro camera with a wide-angle lens, so you can record your entire lesson. The use of cameras is at no charge, but of course you can use your own if you wish. If you are looking to film your lesson and would like to avoid an additional fee for a provided SD card, you must supply one yourself.

Are there any restrictions on who can come with me to see me flying?
The airport property is federally regulated and as such there are restrictions as to who may enter. We are limiting access of the airport to the customer flying and one person potentially filming or taking pictures. If you have a larger group we will kindly ask that they stay in the designated picnic area or in the airport restaurant.

How difficult is flying an airplane?
The basis of flying is fairly simple. Our experienced instructors will provide all the guidance required for you to control the aircraft on your own. There is no need to worry as they can step in at any moment and take control, as our aircraft have dual control systems. It will most likely take you a few lessons before you figure out how the laws of aerodynamics work. In your first few lessons, take offs and landings can only be done by the instructor.
