Q&A with the Chief Pilot
What special training do you or your staff have?
Our instructors are all federally licensed and certified by the FAA. The range of credentials amongst our FAA instructors extend from individuals with over 35 years of flight experience to a former Professional Airline Pilot in Transport Category Aircraft.
I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
Safety is our number one priority. And you can rest assured that you and your loved ones are in excellent hands when you choose Fleming Aviation. Sit-back, relax, and take great confidence in knowing that your instructor holds the highest level of training and professionalism that this industry can produce. Furthermore, our modern fleet of aircraft are considered to be some of the most innovative, technically advanced airplanes available for general aviation. Employing many new safety features, such as the BRS (Ballistic Rocket parachute deployment System), our customers have that extra peace of mind that the majority of other flight schools simply cannot offer you.
What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
