Private Pilot Training

 


Primary Flight Training is conducted in one of our two clean and well maintained Diamond DA20s. Both aircraft ane equipped with modern "Moving Map" GPS providing easy navigation. Both DA20s have the reliability of a FUEL INJECTED ENGINE. It is no wonder that the US AIR FORCE selected this to use as their primary flight trainer.

The DA20 also provides stable flight characteristics that help build confidence in those early training hours, and it's sporty handling keeps the fun meter pegged as you advance toward that Private Pilot Certificate.
