Not sure where to begin? 
A $99 introductory flight is a great place to start when you're new to flying or considering flight training.  Call our B19 office to schedule.



With a minimum of one hour of ground training and one hour of flight training (which can be in your own aircraft), we can satisfy the requirements of §61.65 and ensure safe practice while operating the aircraft. One of our certified flight instructors will work with you to make sure you are up to date and current with all Federal Aviation Regulations and standards.

New England is home to a wide variety of airfields and airports that are great for day trips or overnight stays. Fly west to the mountains and lake regions, down to Cape Cod, or along the Maine coastline to Bar Harbor!

Give us a call for more details and how to schedule your flight.

Brush up on those instrument procedures and schedule a time to complete your IPC with CHI! One of our certified instructors will sit down with you and complete a full review of the knowledge and procedures needed to fly on an instrument flight plan, fly under instrument meteorological flight conditions (IMC), and meet all of the § 61.56 requirements.
