Let's take a look at our fleet so you can see what we're all about!

Our Fleet

Above is a picture of one of our panels. We are the only flight school in LA to have full ADS-B in and ADS-B out in EVERY Airplane. Along with the latest and greatest in garmin touch screen avionics. Uniformity when it comes to your cockpit and panel is a huge part of your training and having a uniform fleet allows you to progress faster through the program and with less confusion. The panel you see above is identical to ALL of our panels.

Professional Use Flight Simulator

Keep in mind, these are NOT the only airplanes we have access to on our fleet. We also have many high wing aircraft available to rent AFTER you complete your license. Our program however is based around a low wing setup and so we see much better results when students stick to our core fleet pictured above and not hop between unfamiliar airplanes and avionics. Uniformity is KEY!
