To train pilots above and beyond the minimum proficiency levels necessary to pass FAA exams or to meet insurance requirements
Our objective for our pilots is to achieve and maintain the on-going skill levels necessary to operate their aircraft safely for themselves, their families, and their passengers based on real-world assessments and pilot proficiency, aircraft limitations, and operating environment.
