We fit training to the needs of the student pilot. That is, we personalize programs to better mesh with the schedule, aptitudes and preferences of our clients while providing aeronautical tutoring and flight training from the ground up. Our pricing is reasonable and meet CFR Part 61 and TSA Flight Training Providers requirements.

Further, we promote aviation by introducing local High School age students to the wonderful world of aviation via free summer programs and monthly seminars. The Coachella Valley Youth Aviation Program has been in effect since 2012 where several hundred young aspiring pilots have attended acquiring ab-initio aeronautical experience on the ground and air.
