Flight training is more than textbook knowledge and passing a test.

It is risk management, resource management and aeronautical decision-making that keep pilots out of trouble.

 

Our training program focuses on these topics through a scenario-based approach to learning. Like most things in life, there is no single way to accomplish a task. Some methods just work better than others.

 

Our students are taught to think as Pilot in Command from the very beginning and make decisions to determine the outcome of every flight.
