Rotorzen instills students with the skills and savvy needed to command the open-air cockpit of a powered parachute. Certified instructors nurse knowledge over 60 minutes of pre-flight training, teaching aspiring daredevils how to handle instrumentation and sneak up on cirrus clouds from behind. Students next take to the skies for 30 minutes of turbine-charged cruising as they skim over and sail through the air above the Lansing Municipal Airport. Flight lessons depend upon wind conditions and are offered Friday evenings, Saturday mornings, Saturday evenings, and Sunday mornings. While powered parachutes accommodate only one pilot at a time, individuals can bring along fellow flyers to join in on the acrobatic antics. All flight time can be applied toward FAA sport pilot certification and subsequent opportunities to tickle the moon into sneezing green cheese.

Inside their base at Lansing Municipal Airport, aviators maintain a 12,000-square-foot hangar area and 3,000 square feet of training offices and high-speed computerized flight-planning facilities.
