  • Wings Aloft is a good place to learn, and rent whether you are flying as a hobby or for your job. – Aaron B., Judy's Book
  • I got what I paid for and then some. Excellent and knowlegable [sic] staff, always helpful and even when maintenance became an issue, I was always ushered into a comparable aircraft, or given the same rate. No finer school in Seattle. – Guest, Judy's Book

Wings Flying Club

Wings Flying Club's experienced flight instructors share their love of cloud wrangling during hands-on lessons that help pupils log hours of in-flight and ground instruction. The instructors are matched with students based on personality fits, and their instructional flight programs mix and match ground and in-flight lessons to teach students that staying airborne requires more than a pair of pigeon wings. The membership program also grants access to Wings Flying Club's Cessnas, and rental of their planes allows pilots to fly from city to city with proper clearance and large jet-stream hearts.
