Alpha One Air Service

The FAA-certified flight instructors that represent Alpha One Air Service impart winged wisdom to their students, whether the goal includes a casual discovery flight or full pilot certification. Before taking off on their own, students learn about safety regulations and procedures in a safe environment. Novices hoping for a glimpse of flight training before diving into a full certification regimen can sign up for the Discovery flight program, which allows students to take the controls of a light aircraft while an instructor watches closely. On-ground training and in-flight piloting sessions can be scheduled for different days.
