Why You Should Learn to Fly
January 19, 2018
Thinking about learning to fly? We could go on for hours about all the great reasons to embark on flight training, but that might be a bit overwhelming. So we narrowed our list down—from hundreds of great ones—to the following Top 4 Reasons we think YOU should learn to learn to fly.
Reason #1: Learning to fly is a really BIG accomplishment.
Learning to fly takes more than just practicing how to safely pilot and land an aircraft. It demands a lot of hard work and dedication. When you finish flight training, you’ll have a confidence and sense of accomplishment that’s hard to describe. You may also look back and appreciate how the flight training process challenged and equipped you with a host of other life skills, including: responsibility, respect, focus, commitment, and patience.

Announcing Our Core Values
August 22, 2017
We’re excited to announce that we are unveiling our company’s official Core Values. While it took us nearly 18 months to nail down, tweak, and “perfect” the language that would be used in our company’s official Core Values, it feels like we have actually had these Core Values in place for years. In fact, the year-and-a-half long process of creating our Core Values was less “determining” and more “discovering.”
Upgraded 260 HP Engine on N756M
July 10, 2017
We are excited to announce that over the last month, our rental aircraft N756M (Cessna 182 Skylane) has been upgraded with a factory new 260 HP Lycoming IO-540-D4B5 engine! With the added 30HP, you can expect shorter takeoff rolls, quicker climbs, and faster cruise speeds. This is a great addition to the Performance fleet. Even if you have Cessna 182 Skylane experience, it won’t have been like this!
