Whether you are looking at aviation as a career path or as a hobby, everything starts with intentional flight training based upon a predetermined path. With hard work and preparedness, many can achieve the goal of earning their own license. Our team, in addition to earning their own ratings, has helped various local pilots meet their marks and earn their license.

Our program is the perfect way to not only accelerate the pace of your training but also mitigate the overall cost. We work to pair you up with training partners – pilots at the same place in their journey – which makes a great environment for studying, working together and flying together as well.

If you are interested in learning more about what it looks like to earn a pilot’s license, set up a time for a free phone call with one of our team members. We are happy to answer any of your questions. Right now, flight training in Central Missouri is extremely limited and it comes at a cost. Our programs save pilots at least 35% off their license compared to aircraft rental, although most see even more!
