Our Programs

Sport Pilot

Pleasure Flyer - Daytime Only

The Sport Pilot Program offers most-times a quicker path to becoming a certificated pilot.  The training is the same as the Private Pilot Program except we leave out the night flying.   CHI still goes above and beyond the minimum requirements of Sport Pilot training to ensure you are confident and prepared to fly the sky highway safely.  We are seeing a lot more younger pilots take the Sport Pilot route.  It seems it just might be the Pilot license of the future!

Our Light-Sport Airplanes (LSAs) are our RV12's, CTLS, and Ercoupe!

Enabled Pilot

Pilots with Physical Disabilities

CHI feels that all people should be able to experience the joy of flight.   After all, our country started this great past-time!  Our Enabled Pilot Program allows people with some physical disabilities to take part in Flight Training.  In lots of cases you can earn your Sport Pilot certificate.  You may even be able to earn your Private Pilot certificate (with 3rd class medical attainment). 

Our classic 1946 Ercoupe was designed to be flown without rudder pedals which makes it the perfect trainer for many physical disabilities. Call us to talk about this program and to come for a visit!  

Check out Jessica Cox - she learned to fly in the Ercoupe and she was born without arms!

Private Pilot

Pleasure Flyer - Including Nighttime

The Private Pilot program is the oldest learn-to-fly program in aviation.   CHI offers this training in new model aircraft so that you are taught on state-of-the-art systems used in today's world of aviation.  

We teach in Light-Sport Airplanes for primary training, but don't let our LSA planes fool you!  Our RV12's have ADS-B, Synthetic Vision, Auto-Pilot, and are fully-equipped for night flying.  

Our LSA airplanes are a fantastic way to earn your Private Pilot certificate!
