Our airplanes are among the finest trainers available. Seventeen are four-place, fully instrumented Beechcraft Sports and Sundowners. We also have three Beechcraft Bonanzas with retractable gear and a constant speed propeller for high performance training. A Citabria is used to give tail wheel experience. This gives the student a good background for all types of single engine aircraft. A Beech Travelair is available for those desiring a multi-engine rating. Additional training is available in the floatplane. In March 2006, we took delivery of two technically advanced Piper Warrior IIIs which both have the Avidyne FlightMax Entegra Primary Flight Display and FlightMax EX5000 Multi-Function Display (glass cockpit design).
