FAA CERTIFIED FLIGHT TRAINING

PRIVATE PILOT

THE BEGINNING OF YOUR JOURNEY

The most common first license a pilot attains is called a Private Pilot License (PPL). This license gives you the authority to legally fly passengers, and yourself, in a variety of airplanes.

Just as with any course or schooling, the first formative days are always the most important. We guide you little-by-little, and lesson-by-lesson and eventually build you up to where you can solo. Becoming a pilot isn’t particularly hard, but there is quite a bit of material to cover, and new motor skills to learn.

We’re happy to guide you through the whole process, while you enjoy flying in the Alaskan skies.

INSTRUMENT PILOT

LEARN TO FLY IN THE CLOUDS

After becoming a private pilot, many aviators desire to increase their skills by becoming instrument rated. An instrument rating allows pilots to fly in a greater variety of weather, but also requires a great deal of skill.

Getting an instrument rating can take a lot of effort, but there is also a great deal of reward. The reward is flying in the clouds, dealing with greater challenges as a pilot, and perfecting skills in airmanship.

Additionally, this is the next stepping block to becoming a professional pilot.

COMMERCIAL PILOT

BECOME A PROFESSIONAL PILOT

Can you imagine getting paid to fly? Well, that’s what happens when you become a commercial pilot. But it’s not exactly that simple.

Gaining experience and growing as a pilot brings you to a point where it’s time to take a step up in professional. You’ll learn to fly more complex and modern airplanes, deal with challenges in a safe manner, and handle the rigors of flight.

But more importantly means becoming a professional. Yes, at this point you’ll have a great deal of skills. But it’s about your attitude toward flight, your handling of passengers and cargo, your attitude toward safety, and more.

FLYING IN ALASKA

Mountain Flying

It’s already been proven that the world isn’t flat, yet, there are still many flat-land pilots. That is, you may have done most of your flying in an area void of mountains. If you find yourself curious about what it’s like to fly in the mountains, we have just the course for you.

We will traverse the mountains of Kachemak Bay, talking about the ins and outs of flying in the mountains. We’ll even land at airports nestled in the mountains. You’ll gain confidence to fly in the mountains, and leave with many memories of flying in the Alaskan mountains.

Alaska Adventure

Go beyond the basics of the Mountain Flying Course and jump in to the Alaska Adventure Course. We’ll go beyond the Kachemak Mountains near Homer and experience a variety of airports in South Central Alaska, giving you a taste for the variety and challenges of flight in this area.

Potential airports to visit are Seldovia, Ninilchik, Cooper Landing, Soldotna, Kenai, Seward, or even Port Alsworth.

This course will usually involve some other kind of activity, whether that be a hike, or a $100 hamburger, etc.
