About Positive Rate Gear Up

The licensed aviators at Positive Rate Gear Up command a trio of Piper aircraft, which they use during flying lessons and their own aerial jaunts. The squad includes seasoned veterans ranging from commercial airline pilots to recreational fliers, and takes on students who are working toward wings of their own. The club's nest at Republic Airport exposes trainees to a busy Class D airspace, allowing them to become accustomed to sharing the air and negotiating heavy traffic caused by 10-cloud pileups. The team also teaches discovery flights aimed at beginners that help them understand cockpit instrumentation and controls as they try their hand at a few aerial maneuvers.
