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.

Racine Sport Flyers was fantastic. I would not have heard of them if it were not for the Groupon. They were wonderful. The owner and the instructor were extremely helpful and so nice. Gave my husband a thrill to fly again. If you are even thinking about trying this...It is great, safe, and an experience you will not forget.
