Solo Flight Training
Why take a walk when you can take a flight instead? From their hanger at Ellington Field Airport, the certified instructors of Solo Flight Training dedicate themselves to answering that question through their personal flight training lessons. Students learn about flight fundamentals while on the ground before heading to the classroom of the clouds within the cockpit of the school’s Cessna 150. Instructors keep a close watch during the supervised flights, standing ready to offer encouragement or tweak techniques as needed. They also run discovery flights that introduce the thrill of private aviation to aspiring pilots and sightseers alike.
