Racine Sport Flyers
The CFI-certified flight instructors at Racine Sport Flyers conduct all their lessons in the cockpit of a 2010 Flight Design CTLS, a carbon-fiber light sport aircraft. Using its Dynon glass avionics panel, Garmin GPS, XM satellite radio, and dynamic map and terrain displays, they guide fly-along students through the steps necessary to become certified sport pilots and private pilots. Instructors also train students to FAA standards through ground school—which covers topics such as aerodynamics, aircraft systems, and navigation—and instill the basics through sessions in a multimonitor flight simulator.
