Avel Flight School

Headquartered at Schaumburg Regional Airport, Avel Flight School's FAA-certified instructors help fledgling aviators take their first steps toward soaring the skies as licensed pilots. A variety of courses cover the essentials of flying solo, from fulfilling the requirements for a private or commercial license to deciphering the many complicated instruments on the cockpit’s coffeemaker. Avel’s instructors also lead discovery flights, during which beginners can take the wheel themselves as an experienced wingman hovers safely over a second set of controls.
