The top aviation school ever. Always clean and professional airplanes and the staff is second to none! Just wrapped up another rating and onto Commercial. All thanks to the incredible talent and ability of the instructors at Inflight. Met some friends and learned so much here. I cant wait to go all the way through my training with these guys. There is no one else out there I would rather work with. Working on IFR so I couldn't get too many pics while flying but... heres a few. I couldn't be more happy with my choice in flight school. You guys rock!!!

I recently finished my PPL at Inflight after a long (27 year!) break in training. My main concerns for picking a flight school were safety and access to aircraft/instructors so I could train regularly. Inflight met both these requirements easily. I flew with a few different instructors, they were very knowledgeable and great teachers with a strong focus on safety. In addition, Inflight has a large fleet of well-maintained aircraft, which made scheduling easy. I passed my check ride on the 1st try. I would recommend Inflight to anyone looking to become a pilot!

I recently received my private pilot certificate (passing the test on the first try!) after training from Inflight. I started my process with a Discovery flight, and immediately got hooked on flying. The instruction I received, which was primarily from Erin, was incredibly professional and helpful. I am extremely satisfied with the training I received and highly recommend Inflight to anyone who wants to learn to fly.

Recommended by my CFI in Massachusetts to continue my PPL training, Inflight has been exceptional. Jake helped me finish my PPL, and the enthusiasm for flight and the supportive community made the pressures of the checkride and switching to a towered Airport an overwhelmingly positive and fun experience.Don’t wait to start your dream of flying. Inflight is a great place to learn.

Oh…my…gosh! I took my very first discovery flight with Inflight today and truly no words can do this experience justice! My instructors name was Mark P; he was absolutely amazing! Very knowledgeable, kind, and had some (kinda funny) dad jokes for me haha! He made sure I felt comfortable the whole time and responded to every question I had with clear and concise answers. Caught myself smiling from ear to ear multiple times…..! If you are considering taking your first discovery flight- 1. DO IT! And 2.definitely request Mark! Thank you Inflight & Thank you Mark!

After renting from and training at several different flight schools within and around the Twin Cities, I can say without hesitation that Inflight offers the best all around training package when it comes to reaching that first or next major aviation milestone. Having now finished the commercial stage of flight training, there were several key areas that made me stay with Inflight:Certified Flight Instructions (CFIs):The CFIs at Inflight are second to none and include a wide range of personalities that make it easy to find an instructor and teaching style that optimizes how quickly you retain flight and ground school material. During my training at Inflight, I've worked directly with more than half a dozen flight instructors, whether it be while preparing for an upcoming checkride or simply discussing topics involving maintenance or scheduling, all of which were professional, knowledgeable, and made themselves immediately available whenever I had a question or request.Aircraft and Maintenance:With a fleet size of around 25 airplanes, comprised of Cessna 152s and 172s, Piper Arrow, Beechcraft Bonanza, Cirrus SR20 and SR22s, it is easy to pick and choose which airplanes fit within your level of comfort and budget. All airplanes are well maintained and I've never felt as though my airplane would inevitably shed something important and reach critical mass shortly after takeoff. Aircraft maintenance logs are easily accessible and tracked for the rentee if there is ever any doubt during preflight. Also, Inflight is constantly upgrading and investing in their aircraft, in addition to the normal routine checkups required by the FARs. I've seen far too many Part 61 flight schools attempt to simply satisfy federal regulations and offer nothing further when it comes to their rental and flight packages, so this deviation from an apparent norm impressed me.Scheduling:Gone were the days of trying to get ahold of my CFI over the phone or email to simply verify or schedule a flight lesson. At the time of updating this review, Inflight uses a scheduling software known as Flight Circle, which allows a rentee/student to block off time for a given aircraft and/or CFI for ground and/or flight instruction. Block off the appropriate time for the aircraft and CFI in the designated areas and you're good to go — both you and the CFI will receive a confirmation email, reminders, and notifications should maintenance or something else overlap with that timeslot. In addition to the aircraft, Flight Circle is constantly being updated and fine-tuned with newer additions offering reading material and progress tracking corresponding to your current certificate or rating — one especially helpful feature that I utilize while time building is the Rideshare feature, which allows a pilot to join another pilot's booking in order to split time and rental costs.Electronic Flight Bag (EFB):Inflight provides its rentees/students with an EFB in the form of an iPad mini linked directly to the tail number of the reserved airplane. These EFBs have Garmin Pilot installed, which significantly cuts down the amount of materials required to be carried on the airplane outside of any checkride or training requirements. It is important to note that Garmin releases upcoming versions of their software to Inflight directly, often before releasing to their larger customer pipeline, meaning Inflight is often one of the first customers to receive said updates.To summarize, Inflight is definitely worth your time and investment if you're looking for a Part 61 flight school. I've found that it doesn't matter what stage you're currently at with regards to your training. They will get you to where you want to be with regards to flight currency and flight proficiency, at whatever pace that you feel comfortable with doing.Oh, and you can't put a price on the bird's-eye views of this beautiful state.

I was able to complete my private pilot and pass my checkride here.I fulfilled a life long dream!The school has amazing fleet of airplanes, I was particularly drawn to them because of the Cirrus fleet. The instructors are all totally committed to the student's progress. My primary instructor was incredibly supportive and kept me going(Thank you Ambyr!)Facility is first rate and concierge staff make you feel special every time you walk in. Elliot FBO staff are also top notch.This school is around for the long term, I plan to continue instrument, and hopefully commercial ratings. If you are thinking about going here take the plunge, you will not regret it.

A few years after completion of private pilot certification, I stopped flying and did not return until decades later when I discovered Inflight Pilot Training at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, MN. I had considered return to a sport pilot level, but with a private certificate I decided to return to that status. The instruction at Inflight is superb. It is accurate to figure an hour of instruction for every year of prior inactivity. After progression to a first flight review, I went on to train for instrument and commercial ratings. The two senior instructors I've flown with there are experienced professionals, excellent teachers, grounded in a culture of safety, and exquisitely supportive of their students. I've not had formal interaction with the younger crew of their many other instructors. I did all formal ground school using King School programs on line, but Inflight instructors provided supplemental ground teaching as needed, The growing fleet of Cessna and a single Piper aircraft are of "legacy" vintage, but very well and safely maintained by the dedicated Inflight maintenance staff. They have upgraded the instrumentation and avionics in many of these planes. Occasionally, regular maintenance has interrupted airplane availability and advance planning is needed, though this is a fair trade for safe equipment. There are also Cirrus and Bonanza aircraft for those wanting that degree of complexity. I am very satisfied with my experience at Inflight and recommend them highly..

I have had a great experience training at Inflight. I just completed my commercial license and felt very prepared for both the oral and skills exams. The fleet is large and well maintained, so I always feel safe in the planes. Additionally, it is usually not difficult to find a plane due to the size of the fleet. The instructors are very knowledgeable and flexible, so there is never an issue scheduling lessons. Overall, I would highly recommend!

After 15 years away from flight training, I decided to change paths and pursue a career in aviation. Inflight Pilot Training did an amazing job getting me comfortable behind the controls again. I recently earned my commercial certificate at Inflight. All of the staff, instructors, facilities, airplanes, etc.. are top notch! Thank you Inflight for helping me through my certificates and ratings!!

I signed up for a Discovery Flight for my wife (and I rode along) with one of their SR20 aircraft. The whole experience was great from start to finish. Mark, our CFI, contacted me earlier in the day to confirm the appointment and go over any questions or concerns I might have had. Once we got there, he walked us through the process and allowed plenty of time for questions as we got ready for our first flight in a Cirrus. The flying itself was great as well and my wife got to do plenty of hands on piloting of the plane. In the end, it was a fantastic experience and I couldn't recommend Mark and the InFlight team more!

I had a great experience at Inflight Pilot Training! It started when a first stopped in for an impromptu visit to tour the facilities and learn more about the programs they offer. The staff member spent considerable time showing me everything and explaining the process to obtaining a private pilot license. Once I began my training, I was hooked from the start! They paired me with an instructor who was very knowledgeable, patient (especially through some not so perfect landings early in training), flexible, and above all a great teacher. My flight training at Inflight prepared me to pass both my knowledge test and my checkride on the first attempt. I would highly recommend them and look forward to continuing towards my instrument rating at Inflight!

My experience with Inflight was nothing short of amazing! I’d especially like to give a shout out to my instructor Colin H! In a professional manner, he always made me feel like a good friend and that made communication super easy. In fact, from top to bottom, each instructor treats you with respect, patience, and professionalism. Also shoutout to Sadie, Andrew, and Kayla at the main office desk! You can tell they have solid core values at Inflight just by who they hire. They have always been upfront and honest with me when it comes to pricing, general aviation questions, checkride prep, etc. I live closer to another flight school, but the family-like atmosphere is what drew me to attend this flight school and makes the extra drive totally worth it! Not to mention, they offer you Sweet Martha’s cookies after each lesson as well! Lastly, when it comes to the airplanes, they have a large variety to choose from, which helps with rental availability. I highly recommend anyone looking to get into aviation, choose Inflight you won’t regret it!

I had a great experience training at Inflight for my private pilot license. Getting my license had been a dream since childhood and with the support of my family I finally decided to fulfill my dream this year. My primary instructor, Mark, was great and I had a chance to fly with a couple of other Inflight CFIs during my training. Mark was patient with me and brought me from a true beginner to someone who was ready to take my checkride, which I passed in late July! Inflight has lots of planes and instructors so finding time to train when it worked for me was easy. I strongly recommend anyone who has ever thought of getting your license to check out Inflight!

If looking within the Twin Cities, this is a great flight school. Coming from a part 141 school at a university to Inflight, it felt very welcoming and personable, I wasn't just another one of a couple hundred students. My time with the instructors has felt more meaningful and enjoyable. There are plenty of planes to choose from. Whether it's in a plane with advanced avionics to original dial gauges. You pick what you want to fly.When it comes to price, it's fair to choose the cheapest option. But when it comes to the quality of training and knowledge you'll gain, you can't skimp on that.Working full-time aside training for my PPL, I was able to schedule around work and other events that came up. It's all tailored to you.

AUGUST 2021:Just passed my Private Pilot checkride last Friday 8/6/21!! I felt very prepared by Jeremy & did a mock checkride with Dan 2 days before. There is no question Inflight does everything you need SAFELY and with the BEST FLEET (especially if you fly Cirrus) and highest caliber INSTRUCTORS for flight training in Minnesota. I'm planning to transition to the SR22 and start my IFR training next. The more you know about aviation, the more you realize all the little things Inflight does well from flight planning, scheduling, maintenance, etc. FIRST CLASS people & value as well.NOVEMBER 2020 - 4 months into my training:Inflight just does EVERYTHING the right way for flight instruction. Best service, broadest fleet, most experienced instructors, modern scheduling & a convenient location at KFCM. I waited 25 years to get my license and was referred to Inflight by a trusted buddy who is now IFR rated. My CFI Jeremy Olsen has 3500+ hours - his experience & nuanced understanding of how to teach to unwavering safety standards is impeccable. I have flown quality Cessna 172s, transitioned to a Cirrus SR-20 and when done with my VFR training will be rated on both - with plans to get my IFR. The Inflight community is 1st class & just the right feel. Total no brainer for aspiring aviation career oriented or a pilot “dad” like me with a job/family who just loves to fly.

I have been taking lessons here since March and the staff are as friendly and professional as they come. The culture they have built at this flight school is top notch. I was able to move as quickly as my schedule would allow and received my private license and instrument rating in less than 5 months. I plan on continuing training through CFI/CFII and all of that will be through Inflight. They are truly the best flight school in the area.

I have completed my private pilot's license and now my IFR rating with Inflight, and I am so happy to have gone through my training with them! I chose Inflight originally because of their transparency in pricing and expectations, and stayed because of their aircraft availability, incredible team of CFIs, and their constant desire to improve. Since starting my training over a year ago, I have seen Inflight add on over 6 planes to their fleet, hire more mechanics and support staff, more CFIs, find more ways to incorporate technology - just to help improve the experience for their students and renters. I'm excited to continue on to my commercial license, and then onto my own CFI rating to hopefully make aviation a long term career, and to make myself an even safer pilot. If you have the ability to come in and take a discovery flight, do it and see if the aviation bug is in you. It's something you won't regret!

My experience at Inflight has been amazing! Everyone on the team is friendly, welcoming, and professional and willing to help out in any way possible. It is clear that Inflight ownership/management has the customer in mind with all decisions made and they are always striving to improve the experience however possible. There are seemingly endless resources available to students/pilots via the website, Flight Circle, and the iPads included with all airplanes. The lineup of aircraft is unmatched in the area, and I have never struggled with availability. Airplanes are kept clean and in great condition. The ramp service of Elliott Aviation is top notch, which makes the overall experience that much better. Finally training... I can't say enough about the high quality of training I received and I was very well prepared for my private pilot checkride. I am looking forward to continuing my flying journey with Inflight. Whether you plan to fly as a hobby or for a career, you won't find a better team to get you there than that of Inflight Pilot Training.

Great location at a not too busy (but has its moments) towered airport. Great to learn at as you’re right at the edge of the busy MSP airspace but also have the wide open countryside to fly over on quieter days. The staff is helpful and takes great enjoyment in getting people up in the air. Lots of airplanes to rent but during the summer it’s hard to get one last minute as they are very busy. If you have flexibility it isn’t a problem! I did all of my training for my private pilots and look forward to doing my instrument ratings with Inflight! Update: not much has changed with regards to the company- still good people working hard to make flying safe and fun. I completed my instrument training with them and worked with two solid instructors. Safety is key and the planes are updated to fly with some pretty respectable avionics. Will certainly continue flying with Inflight.

Yesterday, I had the best time ever during my Discovery Flight at Inflight Pilot Training. I have done solo skydiving, and I certainly had more fun flying Cessna 172 than jumping off from Cessna caravan for the freefall. Now I got hooked on aviation and plan to acquire a private pilot license.Big shout out to my excellent flight instructor Mark P. From my teaching background, it was evident that he was just as talented in instructions as he was in aviation. He also kindly explained the detailed steps I needed to take for the license. I look forward to putting in more flying hours soon.Discovery flight is also an excellent gift for yourself or your loved ones!!!

Nevertheless, his timing schedule is very accommodating.The aircrafts are well maintained and has astounding maintenance records. Furthermore they have a fleet of various aircrafts including the ones with G1000 avionics which are very flexible to book online.Currently working on my IFR training and looking forward to complete my entire training here. Can't wait to become an airline pilot 😊

If you're looking around the Twin Cities for the right flight school, just save your energy and go straight to Inflight. They are the best school in the state no doubt. Top notch instructors, plethora of airplanes, and just a friendly/welcoming atmosphere all around - I felt very comfortable very early on. From high wing to low wing, multi-engine & complex birds and still growing.. from six pack steam gauges to full glass, the Inflight fleet is there for any student and certified pilot. Full transparency, although their cost for training might not be the cheapest in the area, the best flight school never will be, you're paying for quality. Common misconception I've found from others, "oh that school is cheaper, lets go with them". Don't do that. Go with Inflight, you'll get what you pay for.I work a full time job that involves traveling and last minute events, not a problem. Inflight is structured to be flexible, understanding, and there for you. Training for my PPL was not easy, it had its challenges and with that comes good days and bad days. You learn a lot from both. But my instructors were there encouraging and supporting me every step of the way.Training at Inflight was like flying with a friend that was teaching me how to fly. That's how it should be.

Booked a discovery flight with inflight and had an amazing time. Would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning to fly a plane, or is simply curious what it is like! My instructor Aaron was very knowledgeable, and I felt safe and comfortable the entire flight. We went over the flight plan beforehand and then we took to the skies! I was able to to take the controls and practice straight and level flight, ascending, descending, turns, and even recovering from a stall! The facility is immaculate and the plane was well maintained, as I’m sure the others are. I even got free cookies at the end. Five stars for sure!

InflightPilotTraining at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie is outstanding. I've been renting airplanes from Inflight for 5 years. Quality airplanes, and quality instruction. Scheduling blocks for airplanes and instructors is easily completed on FlightCircle. This is a core value to anybody looking to tailor their everyday schedules to fly. I have completed my Private, Instrument, and Commercial ratings through Inflight. Instructors are skilled and understand how to build students to become rated pilots. I highly recommend Inflight for any aspiring pilot interested in flying, and any rated pilot looking for an excellent environment to continue their mastery of flying. The aircraft fleet is a great variety, and their fleet continues to expand. Excellent equipment to take into the sky!

I took my first lesson with Inflight in late August of 2019. In the span of 20 months, I got my Private's license, Instrument rating, Commercial license, CFI and CFII.I was originally going to start flight training at a different school but I wanted to check out Inflight before diving deep into it just to be sure I was making the best choice on where to go. Right away, I noticed how professional and welcoming the school was. The coordinator spent a couple of hours going through everything with me at no charge, and it felt like Inflight was committed to presenting everything the student should know from the onset, which made getting started feel easy and assuring. I learned so much from that information session and it motivated me to want to get started as soon as possible. Inflight does a great job of giving a thorough orientation to all prospective students before they commit to anything and it's a nice way of learning about the school and what they are about to embark upon. Ultimately, I chose Inflight because I knew it was where I'd receive the best training in the metro area.In the year and a half I've done flight training, I have worked with a primary instructor as well as about 10 other instructors along the way. It's been great to have a main mentor, but being able to also make connections with many other instructors has helped me feel even more immersed into the school. All of the CFI's take their responsibility extremely seriously and in preparation for my CFI checkride, I felt over-prepared due to the thoroughness and quality of the instruction I'd received. I appreciate how Inflight has a diverse range of personalities amongst their team too so there should be a good match for any student. All of the instructors are motivated and competent but they all come from different backgrounds and everyone is respected.Regarding the fleet, Inflight has been expanding since I joined. When I started I believe there were around 15 planes but now there's 25, of five different types. I've never had an issue booking a plane and the administration and maintenance due a great job of keeping students informed on when to expect maintenance blocks or helping move things around in the case a plane must be switched. Inflight utilizes are comprehensive maintenance team who ensure the planes are safe to fly. That makes going up enjoyable and makes it easy to fly at anytime and on your own pace without stress. All of the planes are in excellent condition and while we all have our favorites, there's not a single one I wouldn't fly.Taking lessons at a part 41 school is a great way to go for many students. It allows you to go at your own pace, especially depending on your financial and time situation. You get to control when, who you fly with, and how often you have lessons. There are many instructors so finding the time is easy as you are willing. And with the costs, it's doable as is anything if it's important to you. I funded my entire training by waiting tables which proves it doesn't take opulence to become a pilot!One last thing, there are students of all ages and races. There are many students in their 50's and 60's looking to get their license, and there are also high school students, as well as everything in between. I've been able to make several goods friends through Inflight and with a few of them, we've even gone on weekend trips together, including one to Madeleine Island and Omaha. So whether you're just looking to get a license to fly for fun, career oriented, or just looking to become part of a great community, Inflight has a lot to offer and that's why I've stayed with them all the way through my training.I know I made the right decision by joining Inflight. The certifications/ratings aren't rushed and again the instructors are amongst the best in the country. This type of quality instruction gives me confidence that I'll be ready to be a great instructor myself, and that I'll have the necessary foundational skills to be a strong pilot at the airlines in a few years.

I completely recommend Inflight Pilot Training. I am a current student at Inflight and will be taking my PPL checkride very soon! Inflight is professional, safe, and very friendly. They prioritize their staff and students which speaks volumes to how well the company runs. The planes are well maintained. Training is organized yet customizable for the student. It's a great community to be apart of.I did have a slight hick-up at the beginning of my flight training and switched to a different instructor. Inflight made sure my experience and transition was smooth. Inflight has amazing instructors all around but like other comments suggest, be sure you find someone that teaches in a way you learn. Nothing wrong with finding a good fit for yourself. Shout out to Ambyr! She is AMAZING!I love flying out of FCM. It really makes you feel confident having exposure to a busy class D airport early on. It becomes normal for you. Practice areas and smaller airports are nearby though.EDIT 4/20/2021: Inflight has just launched a new instructor matching program! This is going to be a great new tool to help match students and instructors that will work best together how cool.Also, I just passed my private checkride and instrument rating checkride since I posted this review. Each ride I took with different DPEs and each were very impressed. Instruments in the airplanes are great for training. I choose to learn both the 430 and 650, but focused on the 650 at the end of my training for the checkride. I have to say this is thanks to the thorough prep from inflight. Their training is way above average!

Inflight is a 5-star place to train. The instructors are fantastic, the staff goes far above and beyond to help you in any way they can and it is such a friendly and welcoming place to be. I was completely new to aviation upon arrival and they made the process so simple, easy and transparent that I would 10/10 do it over again and I 100% recommend Inflight to anyone considering pilot training!

The planes are well taken care of and I always felt safe. The scheduling system is easy to use and it’s nice you can basically go at your own pace. Highly recommend Inflight!

I have been flying with Inflight for a while now, and I am very satisfied with both the training I have received, and the access to planes for personal rentals. Fairly easy online scheduling for flights makes it very easy, and the vast majority of the time there are enough planes to get in the air on the day you want. Even just for renting to fly on your own, lnflight is a great place to rent from, and the staff and instructors are great people to work with if you do decide to get more training.

Inflight Pilot Training is simply the best place to start your pilot training or continuous pilot education. The instructors are flexible and provide comprehensive explanations to any knowledge topics or practical flight maneuvers you might be having a hard time with as you prepare for checkrides. Inflight is constantly in communication with a few DPEs in the area so scheduling is quick and easy. The facilities and aircraft are constantly getting upgraded, maintenance is always on top of everything, you truly feel safe flying these airplanes!

Inflight Pilot Training is AWESOME!! I would highly recommend Inflight to anyone who wants to learn to fly, continue their training, obtain a new certificate, or rent an airplane. I started training for my PPL during the summer. From knowing almost nothing about flying during my Discovery Flight to passing my Checkride exam and becoming a certified pilot, they are there to support your dreams. The atmosphere around the office is wonderful. They make sure you feel welcome during every visit. Their entire staff is always willing to stop and answer any questions, provide useful tips, or just chat about aviation. I plan to continue flying and learning with Inflight!

Our instructors have been fantastic - they are great pilots and just fun people to be around. We have also had a great experience with their maintenance facility for the annual inspection on our plan. Overall, InFlight as an organization has been great and we cant say enough good things about them!

He is also a great teacher and very helpful all around. Thanks Mark! Keep up the consistency and your helpfulness. I’m looking forward to finishing with flying colors at Inflight.- YY

Went here to make a surprise flight over Minneapolis for my wife's birthday. The staff all quickly understood that she was blindfolded and that it was a surprise. Special thanks to Mark! Great guy as well as a big professional in flying! We had great time and great talks! Easy going and very polite man! Thank you Mark for letting me fly the plane and teaching me a few things about flying! Especially very cool how the guages work and the way you steer and control the plane. Great experience! Definitely 10/10!

A the beginning of May, my curiosity got the best of me, and I scheduled a discovery flight at Inflight Pilot Training. I had been toying around with the idea of flight training, but really wasn't sure if it would be worth the investment.My first flight, I had the time of my life. My instructor was fun, snapped a few pictures of me, and gave me my first lesson behind the yolk. I came down giddy, and within a week was back signing on as a new student.I had looked at a couple other flight schools, but what really convinced me about Inflight was how upfront they were about costs and expectations, while really showing a sense of compassion for their students and passion for not just aviation - but creating new pilots.While many of the flight instructors have goals of airlines someday, at no point have I felt like I was just being used to build their hours. I have worked with multiple CFIs during my training, seeing how concepts can be explained differently, seeing different points of view for how to handle challenging situation. Having a big team of extremely capable CFIs, along with a large fleet of planes to train in, has meant that my training has had very minimal delays due to instructor availability or aircraft availability. There is always some option available if I want to get some training in!I have my private checkride scheduled next month, and intend to stick with Inflight as I work my way up to being a CFI. Their passion and desire to be the best is something that sticks with their students, and I intend to keep living up to the Inflight standard!

Inflight is the real deal! I completed my private pilot license with Inflight and currently rent planes from them. From the first day I walked into Inflight, I was impressed by their commitment to excellence. From scheduling a plane to learning from one of their CFIs to their mechanic staff, Inflight takes the business of a flight school seriously and does not cut corners. I always knew exactly what to expect as a student pilot when learning from Ian and a couple of other Inflight CFIs. It only happened to me once, but I had a minor mechanical question with one of the plane’s I was renting. Through that experience, I am confident Inflight takes maintenance seriously. If something seems unusual with a plane, they will pull it until a mechanic takes a look. Over the years, Inflight keeps improving and growing. With additional planes and instructors, there is even more flexibility today and they still have that same focus on excellence. If you are looking for a convenient place to rent planes or a great flight school with instructors who know how to teach, I highly recommend checking out Inflight!

I started with a discovery flight and then signed up for the private pilot lessons straightaway because of the great experience I had. Mark, my instructor, has been great and I really appreciate the flexibility I have to learn at my own pace. Due to work obligations, I'm only able to fly on the weekends and the fact that inflight has a lot of planes makes scheduling possible even with a narrow window. I would recommend anyone looking to start pilot training to begin with the discovery flight and sign up with inflight. I have had a great experience and I'm sure you will as well.

I received my private pilot's license from Inflight. I started at a different flight training school but due to a career relocation I needed to find a flight training program in Minneapolis. I was able to pick up right were I left off when I joined Inflight. They have the supplies, planes and instructors to help you succeed. You can even take your written test next door and take the check ride on site. Knowledgeable and fun staff. Update: Since completing my PPL in 2017, I have gone on to receive my Instrument training and have been able to fly all over the Midwest. I will look to Inflight to continue my training as a Commercial pilot!

I recently earned my private pilot license after receiving training at Inflight Pilot Training. I was reluctant to call at first because of my own reservations, but once I took that first step, I never looked back. The first phone call was great. The woman I spoke with was very informative and helped me get the process started. I had a session with my CFI, Drew scheduled and was instructed on what to expect and what was expected of me. The first session with my CFI was introductory to find out where to start with my training. I had previous fly time and my written exam was done but I needed to work on a few more things. After my first flight, we worked out a plan to get me ready for my check ride. The lessons with my CFI were very effective and he took advantage of every moment to teach me new things. He took the time to answer all my questions and made sure I was comfortable before moving on. As I progressed, he empowered me to make the hard decisions and offered help if he noticed me struggle too much. This was very helpful for me because I would tend to avoid challenging things if possible. When I made mistakes, he was sure to use them as a learning moment and explain exactly what happened. He also gave me clear direction for passing the oral portion of the check ride. We had several ground lessons which helped me prepare. I can honestly say that my CFI was passionate about helping me achieve my goals. He is very knowledgeable about all things aviation and whenever I had a question, he always knew the answer. I had limited interaction with the other CFI's but everyone at Inflight was very friendly, helpful and encouraging to me. I really enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. Their airplanes were always clean and maintained very well and they have a lot of planes in their fleet. They use an online schedule so you can book your own training sessions and rent the planes at your convenience. I felt like the cost was very reasonable for all the training I received. If you become a club member you can save a lot of money through the process. I would definitely recommend you check them out. Inflight Pilot Training is such a great community of support. Now I can enjoy the benefits of flying with my family!

I earned my private pilot certificate with Inflight and I couldn't have had a better experience from start to finish. There are a ton of experienced instructors, with a vast amount of knowledge, there to help you become a pilot on your own timeline. Also having the choice between the 152 or the 172 is great if you are trying to earn certificates on a budget (most of the airplanes have digital avionics or are being updated to digital). On top of that, they have other airplanes if you are looking to get your Complex, TAA or High Performance endorsements. I look forward to continuing onto my instrument rating with Inflight and I hope that this review steers you in the right direction!

I started just taking the Discovery Flight at Inflight Pilot Training and true to their words, I got a full hour flying time and a 30 min ground lesson compared to other Flight Training provider where they just give you an hour for both Flight and Ground lesson.After the discovery flight I just can't help myself but to keep flying more so I enrolled in their program and currently trying to get my Private Pilot License soon.All I can say is the training is excellent as I was able to understand the basics from the ground up and the ambiance of the training school is very much welcoming.Lastly, aside from the very professional and knowledgeable instructors at inflight, I get to enjoy some treats after my flight training with Sweet Martha's cookies! 🙂

I would consider Inflight an excellent flight school. I started my flight training about 4 months ago and it has been such a fun and exciting process. My flight instructor Mark is great and have heard nothing but good things about the rest of the crew here at Inflight. They keep a clean organized and safe facility. The have lots of training aircraft and are always looking to add to their fleet with an increase in demand. When I get into one of their airplanes I know I can trust it. It's an honest business with transparency never have I been charged for something I didn't want or didn't need. Also all the payments are easy to track online to stay organized. I recommend anyone that is interested in aviation to look around before deciding on what school fits you best, but I would definitely consider going to Inflight.

Whether you are a complete beginner with some curiosity or a frequent flyer looking to go commercial, Inflight is there for you.When I first began my journey with inflight, it surprised me how easy signing up for the discovery flight and starting my lessons were. For me personally, their quick response time was very reassuring that I was doing the right thing.It also surprised me that each lesson had a mix of education and actual flying. I flew a plane in the first lesson! With the help of the instructor of course. I never thought it would be so simple and fun to get into flying.I am very happy with each lesson I receive from Inflight and the lifelong memories I will gain from them.

Earned my instrument rating with Inflight and found the staff and instructors to be qualified and genuinely interested in their students’ success. Inflight makes good use of technology in their planes and systems with iPads, Garmin Pilot, GPS, a BATD simulator, electronic airplane logs, etc. They also foster a sense of community among students and instructors, which is appreciated.Added a Commercial Certificate recently with Inflight. My instructor was very helpful and flexible as well. Inflight continues to make improvements, adding well-equipped planes and expanding their facilities, trying to make the flight experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.Added Flight Instructor Certificate with Inflight. The process required dedication and concentrated effort since the material is so comprehensive, but Inflight helped considerably. The range of experiences among the instructors and their teamwork provided invaluable instruction and support.

My instructor did a thorough job of preparing me for the practical test.I appreciate that Inflight has a good sized (and ever-expanding) fleet of 2-seat Cessna 152 airplanes that are well-equipped and well-maintained. Being able to rent a smaller plane for my private pilot training helped keep costs more reasonable.

My backgrond as a student is somewhat unusual as I did my initial flight training in Sweden 30-40 years ago where I did private, instrument, commercial and multi engine. When I moved to the US in 2001, I did get a FAA private license based on my Swedish CPL. Three years ago I decided to pursue a “real” FAA license which meant taking all the exams and tests required for a pilot who have never seen a aircraft before. I did some web research and quickly concluded that Inflight looked like a great first flight school to check out. After my first lesson with Jeremy Olsen, it was an easy decision to stay with Inflight for all my flight training. I have finished private, instrument and commercial over a period of three years and it’s been a great experience from every aspect. Instructors are well trained, have a professional attitude and all five instructors I have had the pleasure to fly with, have been very friendly and helpful. The school is also well run and all aircraft are maintained and equipped to a high standard. I used five different flight schools in Sweden for different phases of my training. They were all good in various ways but none of them provided the overall quality of training that I have experienced during my three years at InflightI also found Flying Cloud to be an ideal airport for flight training. It’s big enough that you get the big airport experience of complex taxiways with many crossings over the three runways while at the same time, the volume of traffic is low enough that you don’t have congestion in the pattern, at least not all the time. At times when Flying Cloud is busy, there are several smaller airports with little or no traffic within 10-20 minutes flight.Another very positive experience is that the level of service and friendliness provided by Elliott Aviation, the FBO that host Inflight. The Elliott crew is always there to help quickly with fuel and other practical needs.If you are looking for a well run flight school in the Twin Cities area, Inflight will not disappoint you. It might not be your cheapest option but just looking at hourly costs for flight training can often be misleading. With high quality training, most people need less hours to reach their goal.The final positive thing I want to mention about inflight is their IT maturity level. The web based system for scheduling aircraft and instructors is great. It is super convenient to be able to browse the online calendar and quickly schedule or change your lessons. No more time consuming phone calls or emails to find time for your lessons. Also, all aircraft are equipped with an electronic flight bag in form of an iPad. This means no more carrying around a heavy pilot bag filled with books, manuals, maps and other documentation. This is all available with a few clicks on the iPad. You can even use it to see not only exactly where you are but also where other aircraft in the area are as well as weather information.

Good variety of both aircraft and avionics makes for a well rounded training experience, and you can save money flying in the 152s. Also getting sweet martha's cookies at each flight doesn't hurt either. I've worked with another local flight school previously and definitely prefer Inflight.

I just finished up my Instrument Rating here and couldn't be happier! The instructors were happy to work at my pace (flying with me 4 to 5 times per week) and always came prepared with something to work on. They're very knowledgable and incredibly professional. Many of the instructors are working towards the airlines, and the students are met with the same level of professionalism. Additionally, they have a huge fleet and a full time maintenance staff so they planes are always in great shape and are constantly being inspected. I'd recommend Inflight Pilot Training to anyone.
