Travel Express Aviation (TEA) is a full service flying club that provides one of the largest and most diverse fleets in the Chicago area. As a club member, you will have access to everything from Warriors to the Pilatus all Garmin equipped, with everything from the 430 to the G1000 Perspective. Here you will find a great availability of aircraft, economical rates and professional flight instruction from experienced FAA certified flight instructors!

At TEA, you will find a friendly, club-like atmosphere with a well appointed lounge where you will find comfortable seating and a flat panel television where aviation flicks are always playing and a kitchenette where the coffee is always on. Our airplanes are housed in the heated attached hangar where our line service staff will assure that the plane is polished, fueled and ready to go when you are. It's like owning your own plane, without the hassles and financial commitment.

At TEA, you will find a staff of highly experienced flight instructors that will help you to earn anything and everything from a private rating to an airline transport pilot rating. Although we offer group training for things like the High Altitude Endorsement or a Pinch Hitter Course, most all of the other training will be tailored to your schedule and abilities. Our instructors have thousands of hours under their belt. This is real life experience that they will share with you to make you a better pilot! If it's the Cirrus that you are interested in flying, feel confident in TEA's CSIP instructors who have been trained under the Cirrus certified training curriculum.

At TEA, you will find a family of aviation enthusiasts, who like yourself, love to talk airplane and just love to fly! Get to know them by participating in Saturday Morning Breakfast Club Fly-Outs, Fun Hangar Flying Events, Quarterly TEA Sponsored Safety Meetings or simply just stopping by the club for a cup of coffee and to watch the planes take off and land.
