A former United States Navy fighter pilot with more than 30 years experience, chief flight instructor Cecil Tune personally selects each new member of Mint Air's staff. These handpicked educators parachute out of their offices and welcome pupils aboard a Flight Design CTLS, the company's primary training aircraft. The German-manufactured planes enclose pilots in a full-glass cockpit, allowing for unencumbered views while soaring above rolling foothills on discovery flights or certification programs. Combined with the school's ground instruction, the flight training can secure the sport, private, or commercial licenses required to finally patronize the world's floating drive-thrus. Mint Air's crew also manages and sells planes.
