Flight Training in the Twin Cities: 5 Reasons Inflight Rises Above All Other Training Programs

There are plenty of flight training options in the Twin Cities, serving students of all skill levels. But none quite match up to the programs offered by Inflight Pilot Training. From our track-record of safety to our highly skilled certified flight instructors (CFI) to our state-of-the-art facilities and beyond, here are a few reasons why Inflight rises above all other flight training companies in the Twin Cities.


1) Stellar Safety Record

First, and most importantly, is our stellar safety record. A tenant of our training programs is to always provide a safe environment for our students. As such, our CFIs are required to carry high marks in safety in order to teach for us. Many of our pilots are Cirrus-certified, meaning they’ve received extensive training from the specialists at Cirrus Aircraft headquarters and can accommodate almost any flight training request or requirementOur experience also backs up our commitment to safety – our team has over 18,000 hours of combined flight hours and numerous master-level certifications, letting you rest easy knowing you’re in the hands of the Twin Cities’ most skilled CFIs.


2) Variety of Flight Training Programs

Our flight school provides one of the most comprehensive lists of flight training programs in the Twin Cities. Technically, you could stick with us from the moment you begin your private pilot training, all the way through to the completion of your airline transport certification. We also provide one of the most efficient accelerated pilot programs in Minneapolis/St. Paul. With this, students can obtain a private pilot certificate in as little as a few weeks through a more intensive approach to training.No matter where you are in the course of your training, however, we can provide a better path forward with our individualized plans. We always strive to provide our students with positive flying experiences by using the most streamlined and cost-effective pilot training programs available in the Twin Cities. 


3) Great Facilities, Planes & Aviation Equipment

We’re located just southwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul at Flying Cloud Airport. Consistently rated as one of the top airports in the Minneapolis Airport Commission (MAC), our hangars are always kept in superb condition, with state-of-the-art student classrooms and training facilities.  Additionally, our airplanes are maintained by a crew of top mechanics in the metro area, and all of our aircraft are equipped with Garmin GDL 39 3d’s, iPads, ADS-B in receivers, and electronic checklists that enhance safety with live traffic and airborne weather tracking. The cherry on top is our Elite P1-135 professional-grade flight simulator which gives you a way to increase your proficiency in the cockpit, while cutting training costs.

4) We Keep Flight Training Fun & Affordable

Flying is one of the most exhilarating activities you can do – and a huge price tag hanging over your head shouldn’t wreck the amazing feeling that comes with soaring through the sky. That’s why we try to keep our prices competitive within the Twin Cities aviation community. The average price to obtain your private pilot license will range from about $9,000 – $12,000, spread out over a few months with easy financing and payment plans available. We keep costs down so you don’t have to feel overwhelmed with costly training. Learn more about the cost of flight training here.

5) Unmatched Sense of Community

Time and time again, students come through our doors and tell us that it’s not just the safety record or types of programs that keep them coming back, but our strong sense of community. At Inflight, our flight instructors consider pilot training a lifestyle, not just a job. And that’s reflected in the success of our students. We’re a pilot-owned company, so we know what it’s like to be new to the world of flying. That’s why we always treat you as though your family, because the more comfortable you are within a learning environment, the better pilot you will become.
