WHAT FLIGHTGEST ACADEMY STUDENTS SAY


"I randomly stopped by FlightGest during a road trip from Ohio to Florida in October, shortly after starting my PPL training in Ohio, and thankfully met Kirk for the first time! He gave me a tour of the flight school, TAC Air and showed me a handful of planes before throwing an abundance of information my way. Kirk's enthusiasm for a new student pilot who hadn't even committed to FlightGest proved that aviation is a passion for him. He made the most of my 30 minute stop, and I was sold on FlightGest. So much so that I packed all of my belongings to move down here from Ohio, strictly for FlightGest, after I passed my PPL checkride five months later."
