Aero Fliers is a Great Place to Learn to Fly

Aero Fliers is a great place to learn to fly or to add ratings.  For many decades, Aero Fliers has trained many pilots from their very first flight all the way to Airline Transport Pilot, with many Instrument and Commercial ratings earned along the way.  We are located near the FBO at hangar A on the north end of the field at Akron-Fulton Airport.  We are listed with the AOPA as a flying club, AOPA Club Finder.

A major benefit to the student at Aero Fliers is the experience and stability of the instructors.  The Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) of Aero Fliers have over 65 years of combined experience.  A student pilot can rest assured that he or she will not need to start with a new CFI in the middle of training because the CFI was hired by a regional airline.  Additionally, the CFI's of Aero Fliers are instrument instructors and can work with students on attaining advanced ratings.

 The Beech Debonair owned since new by Aero Fliers has a retractable landing gear and meets all of the requirements of complex aircraft to fulfill the requirements necessary for achieving a commercial rating and provide advanced avionics training.

Getting Started

The first thing to do, after an introductory flight, is to schedule a flight physical with an Aviation Medical Examiner (AME). An AME is an ordinary doctor who is authorized by the FAA to conduct medical exams and issue Student Pilot Licenses. That’s right, your first pilot license comes from the doctor! Go to http://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/ to find an AME near you and schedule an exam.

You can fly with an instructor before you get a Student Pilots License, but you can’t fly solo without an instructor. Soloing is the big ego boost you get when you take off and land an aircraft for the first time by yourself with no one in the plane but you.  It is an exciting experience that you will always remember. But, before a student pilot can solo, it is necessary to get a Student Pilot's License from an AME.  Contact Aero Fliers to schedule an introductory flight and don't delay in getting your Student Pilot's License.
