After 30 minutes of ground training, certified instructors welcome pupils into a Flight Design training aircraft for 30 minutes of in-flight instruction. The propeller starts up as students take the controls and guide planes through takeoff. Once in the air, instructors teach flight maneuvers, techniques for navigating during the day or at night, and the procedures for landing the plane.

Mint Air

A former United States Navy fighter pilot with more than 30 years experience, chief flight instructor Cecil Tune personally selects each new member of Mint Air's staff. These handpicked educators parachute out of their offices and welcome pupils aboard a Flight Design CTLS, the company's primary training aircraft. The German-manufactured planes enclose pilots in a full-glass cockpit, allowing for unencumbered views while soaring above rolling foothills on discovery flights or certification programs. Combined with the school's ground instruction, the flight training can secure the sport, private, or commercial licenses required to finally patronize the world's floating drive-thrus. Mint Air's crew also manages and sells planes.

Great experience!
Sara S. · March 1, 2013
Absolutely wonderful experience!! Cecil Tune is a fantastic pilot and individual and took the time with our family to enjoy it. My 10 year old had the time of his life and wants to be a pilot when he grows up. Thank you so much, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone! The Rameys
