Advanced Air Incorporated

Give Advanced Air Incorporated an hour of your time, and their instructors can give you the power of flight. Their training aircraft climbs high above Council Bluffs, where the airport's 656 acres start to look like the world's most realistic Lego set. The instructor hands over the controls, and novices take charge of a plane for the very fist time. The experience is known as a Discovery Flight, and it's a fitting name. That short time in the air can plant the seeds for a lifelong hobby, or perhaps even a career.

The journey to private or commercial licenses begins in ground school, but skills solidify once on Council Bluffs Airport's runways. CBA offers new pilots an ideal location. The airport lies close to Class C airspace, so new fliers begin communicating with air traffic controllers right away. Here, Advanced Air Incorporated's instructors have led many pupils to success; their website's home page brims with words of congratulations for new fliers or pilots who have gained instrument ratings and advanced certifications.

These students don't set their autopilot to fly off into the sunset. Advanced Air Incorporated keeps pilots around with a rental fleet of 10 aircraft, including Cessna and Piper models. The maintenance team also works on privately owned planes.

Customer Reviews

I would definitely pay for a full hour. 30 minutes is a good amount of time but you will be able to do a lot more if you get an hour. It was an incredible experience. Highly recommend it!!!

Best Groupon ever purchased! Our pilot even let me fly the plane! We had an amazing time soaring over CB, and felt very comfortable the entire time. The building is clean, large and comfortable with a friendly team.
