For the first hour of the lesson, students go over ground training, learning subjects such as preflight, postflight, and taxiing procedures, along with getting familiarized with the aircraft. Then, for the second hour, students take to the skies in a Cessna 172 plane, performing basic flight maneuvers with the instructor. During the three-lesson package, students will go more in-depth for both ground training and flights, learning takeoff procedures, basic aircraft handling, transitions, landings, and advanced control techniques. The lessons can get students on their way to private pilot licensure or certification, or serve as continued training for a career in aviation. Because of TSA policies on foreign students, Mesquite Aviation can only offer this deal to U.S. citizens.

Mesquite Aviation

Compiling the crew that leads Mesquite Aviation are owner Chip Harding, certified chief flight instructor Josh Sallee, and certified flight instructor Michael Bellm. Chip, a lifelong aviation enthusiast, underwent training with both Josh and Michael—who each have more than 3,000 hours of instruction experience—and loved it so much that he was driven to buy the flight school and place the pair of instructors at its helm. Located at Mesquite Metro Airport, which is comfortably outside the congested Dallas airspace, the experienced team continually add to their more than 3,000 hours of flight instruction. With a clean, well-kept fleet of Cessna 172s at their beck and call, Josh, Michael, and two other instructors help future pilots achieve private pilot licensure and certification. They also offer tours for those seeking an aerial view of the Dallas area or attempting to find where they parked their car.
