A&R Aviation

The instructors at A&R Aviation showcase the open skies above Oakland Troy Airport as students enjoy casual discovery flights or train to earn a pilot’s license. During instructional flights, instructors place pupils in front of the steering column of a pair of Cessna aircraft—models 150 and 172. The flying machines are kept up to date by an FAA-certified maintenance professional, allowing the student to focus on real world training scenarios without fearing real world technical difficulties, like when nacho cheese is accidentally spilled all over the cockpit.

When A&R's pilots aren't teaching others how to fly, they can be found ferrying people through the skies on sightseeing expeditions. On romantic flights, which showcase the dazzling views of the Detroit skyline at night, couples sip sparkling cider and nibble on chocolates among a sea of rose petals.

Fantastic experience! My 12 year old said it was the best birthday ever! It was educational and a thrill. Pilot Scott was great teacher and I felt very comfortable.
