What Our Fellow Pilots Have To Say About Us:
A really fantastic set-up to practice, learn or gain new skills. This can help at any stage of your flying career. The team takes the time to find out what you are trying to achieve and is incredibly supportive. Well worth a visit!
…When you live in the city getting to a flight school can be tough…If you want something convenient to help keep your skills fresh, try training at this facility and ask for Julian. It helps keeps the rust off and more! I highly recommend it.
Julian and his team provide a time-efficient way to pilot training right in Manhattan. Multiple locations, flight conditions, combined with Pilot Edge that is a “live” ATC is both highly effective and convenient. I highly recommend this training for any student pilot who wants to practice in Manhattan without the hassles of getting out to an airport.
