There is most likely no other question we receive more than that of when we will offer programs designed for adults in the general public. We believe this might just be the year that we can finally meet those requests by offering our first ever Adult Aviation Adventure! You will engage with experts in the field of aviation and aeronautics and develop a uniquely in depth understanding of the basic principles and practices for flight to be successfully achieved. You will also apply those ideas as you experience the thrill of being the pilot of an aircraft with the support of an FAA certified instructor right beside you the entire experience. This venturesome program is one that our undoubtedly elated participants will never forget!
