Choose Between Two Options

  • $59 for a 30-minute introductory flight lesson with a 30-minute ground lesson ($108 value)
  • $99 for a 60-minute introductory flight lesson with a 30-minute ground lesson ($202 value)

A dedicated flight instructor spends 30 minutes going over in-the-air protocol, basic controls, and mechanics with new students. After the brief ground lesson, the student chooses to fly in either a Cessna 172 with wings on top or a Piper Warrior with bottom wings. They then hop into their chosen craft with the instructor, who guides them through take off, a 30- or 60-minute flight, and a safe landing.

Valters Aviation

Gatis and Peggy Valters spent their entire lives working with planes. When the opportunity came to transform their aircraft repair business into a fixed-base operation and flight school, they established Valters Aviation to share their passion of flying with others. The couple employs four flight instructors, who offer both ground-based and in-the-air instruction for aspiring pilots or curious co-pilots. Students are coached all the way through the acquisition of a private, commercial, or certified flight instructor license, honing their flying skills in Cessna and Piper aircrafts.

Gatis still performs full service aircraft maintenance, along with providing appropriate gear from the pilot shop. The mulit-faceted facility also helps clients choose safe flying routes in the weather planning room, and swaps tales of Pegasus sightings in the pilot lounge.

Customer Reviews

The next time, I'm getting the hour-long session rather than the half-hour,which goes by fast. Very informative and supportive instructor. Great time!
