Choose Between Two Options

  • $89 for a one-hour flight lesson for one with video footage of the flight ($275 value)
  • $129 for a one-hour flight lesson for two with video footage of the flight ($475 value)

The private flight lessons include video footage of the experience, headset rental, log book, and credit toward an FAA license. Sessions begin with 60 minutes of ground instruction from a former commercial pilot before leading into a 60-minute instructional flight. Instructors then lead a subsequent one-hour flight that teaches students important fundamentals such as climbing, descending, and turning.

For the two-person option, one student will fly the plane out and then, after landing for refreshments, the second student will fly the plane back to home base.

Positive Rate Gear Up

The licensed aviators at Positive Rate Gear Up command a trio of Piper aircraft, which they use during flying lessons and their own aerial jaunts. The squad includes seasoned veterans ranging from commercial airline pilots to recreational fliers, and takes on students who are working toward wings of their own. The club's nest at Republic Airport exposes trainees to a busy Class D airspace, allowing them to become accustomed to sharing the air and negotiating heavy traffic caused by 10-cloud pileups. The team also teaches discovery flights aimed at beginners that help them understand cockpit instrumentation and controls as they try their hand at a few aerial maneuvers.
