A Chat with Officer Don Flight Training Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Officer Don Flight Training Academy is the only established helicopter operation based in Lexington. We're locally owned and operated and pride ourselves on ensuring 100% satisfaction 100% of the time. We educate in the Robinson R22, the most popular and widely-used training ship on the market.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
All you need to do is show up with a photo ID and be ready to have the greatest experience of your life. The experience will consist of a brief ground training session (Regulations, basic flight principles, controls, etc.) and the flight itself- which counts towards your rating!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Kentucky is a beautiful place with amazing people. Being born and raised here, nothing is better than sharing my passion for flight with Kentucky natives and visitors. Seeing the satisfaction and excitement on the faces of guests when they fly for the first time is priceless and rewarding!
What do you love most about your job?
The satisfaction from helping people experience flight for the first time and also helping people achieve their life-long goal of becoming a Pilot. As a flight instructor, I enjoy being able to facilitate those desires in the safest and most enjoyable way possible.
