Clouds? Weather? Enhance your skills and your safety and experience level with instrument training. New England weather offers us the opportunity to get some great instrument flying experience, and it allows us to practice good judgement and saying “no way today!” We can plan a customized course of instrument flight and ground training that works for you! Our instrument instruction is challenging! And if the weather is just too awful to fly, we can keep making progress in our motion-equipped Redbird simulator.
Thinking about making aviation a career or second job? Advancing your flying skills by obtaining a commercial certificate can open doors to an aviation career. We can help you make this happen!

Most of our instructors have airline, corporate, or military backgrounds and we will train you to fly as professionally as we can. Are you ready for a challenge?
The Sanford Seacoast Regional Airport is a great location for instrument training. The airport has a variety of instrument approaches and close to the Portland and Portsmouth airspaces. Depart to the north and talk to Portland Approach, depart to the south and talk to Boston! And if the weather is just too awful to fly then we can utilize the full motion Redbird Simulator to continue the progress in your training. Give us a call and we can answer your questions!
Are you looking to expand your light aircraft experiences? In our best New England summer weather, learn how to get in and out of small grass and dirt strips near the White Mountains and along the coast of Maine. We have dozens of great charted and non-charted airports that we are able to fly into! We can bring a picnic lunch, stop for ice cream at a dairy farm, and buy lobster for dinner along the coast! The options for this four hour adventure are nearly limitless. No previous experience required but you must at least have a student pilot certificate.
Some pilots really love to fly tailwheel airplanes and for them we have a Citabria. Ours was built in 2004, though the design dates back to Grandpa’s time. It is truly “stick and rudder” flying, with fantastic visibility. If you want to get your tailwheel endorsement and open the doors to a whole new world of aircraft and experiences then look no further. We’d be happy to discuss the training with you!
