Mountain Flying

To us, the Appalachians are home. They are a beautiful display of nature and provide natural landmarks and beautiful scenery that adds to the depth of our pilots’ ability. But to many, they are daggers in the sky, obstacles that should be avoided at all cost, dangerous and unapproachable. Flatlanders often avoid our mountains because they simply do not know how to fly in them. Let us teach you how and introduce you to the beauty that before you may have only seen from a distance.

From student to ATP or flight instructor, our Mountain Flying Course is designed for pilots of various experience levels. The skills obtained from the course are helpful to pilots during many uncomfortable mountain-flying situations and will hopefully result in the safe operation of light aircraft in mountains and at high-density altitudes.

We utilize local airports and mountain top strips during the training. The three parts of the course can be scheduled separately and completed over an extended period of time or accomplished in one or two days, weather permitting. We recommend scheduling at least two weeks prior your anticipated start date.

With advance notice it is possible to complete the course in your own airplane. If you choose to train in one of our aircraft, why not combine your BFR, IPC or G1000 transition?

Spin Recovery

We all know from our private pilot training how important it is to avoid wake turbulence and other other situations that may result in an unusual attitude or spin, but do we really know how to control the airplane in this situation?

A great part of any pilot training is devoted to stalls and this specific flight condition/recovery is a mandatory skill to be demonstrated on check-rides, from recreational to ATP. The question is: what happens AFTER the airplane stalls fully and spins?

Come discover the answer to this and many more questions. Learn how to anticipate and avoid an unintentional spin and how to get out of a spin safely and with confidence. At the end of the training you will have achieved a much higher level of pilot skill and confidence. And…it’s a lot of FUN, too!!!

There is no substitute for experience. If you know what to expect, you know what to do! Give us a call and sign up for the Spin Recovery Course!
