Fly Kalamazoo helps the wingless achieve their aerial aspirations with comprehensive flight lessons taught by dedicated, experienced instructors. The schooling starts on the ground during the introductory lesson with two hours of instruction on the basics of flight controls, navigation, and postflight plane massage. A 45–60 minute hands-on airborne experience follows, where an instructor mans the radio and guides students through basic maneuvers such as turning, climbing, and descending.
The 10-week course delves deeper into the mysteries of flight, as students learn to read weather charts, analyze aerodynamics information, and pilot their first takeoff. Fly Kalamazoo’s professional pilots have organized their program to prepare students for the FAA written test and earn the private-pilot certification without offending the ancient bird elders that preside over it. No matter the course, Fly Kalamazoo takes to the skies in FAA-approved planes.
