In the past year I've completed both my private pilot and instrument rating with Inflight. They have lots of instructors and planes available which is important if you have a busy schedule and want to book a lesson last minute. I've worked with several different instructors and had a positive experience with all of them. They were all enthusiastic and very good at their job. They also recently upgraded all their planes with ADS-B equipped ipads so you can see other traffic in the air which is definitely good for peace of mind while you're flying. Also very helpful for navigating and when doing instrument training. Overall Inflight is a fantastic flight school and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to become a pilot.

From my first phone call until earning my private pilot license, my experience was positive with Inflight Pilot Training! All the planes are well maintained, I was up with 5 flight instructors and they were all knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I appreciated the reservation system as I can book a plane and/or instructor on my computer 24/7. While some times and planes are busier than others, the booking process is quite efficient. Check out Inflight for your flight training.

Inflight is an amazing flight school! I've been nothing but impressed by the caliber of the instructors, airplanes, and Elliott line staff. I got my instrument rating with Jeremy, and it was an awesome experience. I found it challenging, but getting to work with him one on one made complex topics much easier to understand. The instructors are great about working with you at the pace you want. I'm currently working on my commercial license with Inflight, and have nothing but positive things to say.

I had started my flight training 18 years ago and never finished. I came to Inflight this past winter to resume my training. The instructors helped me come up with a plan to get me finished up quickly. They were great to identify the areas I was proficient at and the areas where I needed to improve. Along with easy scheduling and quality aircraft make Inflight a fantastic flight school!

Whatever approach you choose, we can tailor the program to meet your ideal timeline.
  • Safety conscious – our main goal is to provide a safe flying environment. Our pilots must carry high marks in safety as a prerequisite for employment at Inflight
