Avel Flight School
Headquartered at Schaumburg Regional Airport, Avel Flight School's FAA-certified instructors help fledgling aviators take their first steps toward soaring the skies as licensed pilots. A variety of courses cover the essentials of flying solo, from fulfilling the requirements for a private or commercial license to deciphering the many complicated instruments on the cockpit’s coffeemaker. Avel’s instructors also lead discovery flights, during which beginners can take the wheel themselves as an experienced wingman hovers safely over a second set of controls.

“We met with the head of the school who was incredibly helpful prior to the flight. It was my first time driving out that way and I didn't leave enough time to get there. I called to tell them we'd be a little late and he was so nice insisting we drive safely and he'd see us soon. The experience was great and definitely a wonderful opportunity to do something different. I'd highly recommend Avel Flight School!”
