About Above & Beyond Aviation
Though he couldn’t afford to get his pilot’s license after his first flight in 1967, Above & Beyond Aviation founder George Farris was hooked.

Now the expert who teaches the courses, Farris believes in making the rewarding and exciting experience of flight accessible to everyone. At Above & Beyond Aviation, he introduces students to flying and helps them work toward their own certifications.
