Flight 101

Flight 101 has been leading aspiring pilots into the skies for more than four decades. Students begin their avian education seated in a Cessna or Diamond Star aircraft, where they learn liftoff and landing procedures from FAA-certified instructors. All training sessions are held one on one and allow students to feed a fleeting itch for flight or work toward a private pilot license's 40 hours of flight time. Flight 101 operates out of a towered airport—enhancing radio communications and ground operations—and keeps an FAA examiner onsite to ensure clouds don’t form themselves into four-letter words.
