Racine Sports Flyers' licensed flight instructors soar into the clouds on the agile wings of a professional sport airplane as they teach fledgling pilots of all ages how to navigate celestial terrains. Roughly 30 minutes of on-ground instruction schools pupils on basic flying techniques, such as steering and mouthing propeller noises to make the plane go faster. Students and instructors then board aircrafts and take to the wild blue yonder, where learning aviators take control of the vessel as it zips across Lake Michigan or surrounding shores. Students who grow fond of flying or weary of traveling by mule-drawn toboggan can continue on to pursue a pilot's license at the school with as few as 20 hours of training.

Racine Sport Flyers

The CFI-certified flight instructors at Racine Sport Flyers conduct all their lessons in the cockpit of a 2010 Flight Design CTLS, a carbon-fiber light sport aircraft. Using its Dynon glass avionics panel, Garmin GPS, XM satellite radio, and dynamic map and terrain displays, they guide fly-along students through the steps necessary to become certified sport pilots and private pilots. Instructors also train students to FAA standards through ground school—which covers topics such as aerodynamics, aircraft systems, and navigation—and instill the basics through sessions in a multimonitor flight simulator.
