With flight ratings of Airline Transport Pilot, Advanced Ground Instructor, and Commercial Pilot among them, the seven-man team at Airlink LLC can wear a lot of hats. In a given week, they might take first-time pilots aloft for a half-hour introductory flight, conduct a ground school lesson for students working toward a Private Pilot’s license, and whisk sightseers away on scenic flights over the Carrabassett Valley or Sugarloaf Mountain. Based out of the Waterville airport, the FAA-approved 141 Flight School employs a fleet of Cessna and Beechcraft airplanes – including one seaplane – as well as a flight simulator that assists the learning process by eliminating variables such as adverse weather conditions and backseat-driving seagulls.
