WHAT FLIGHTGEST ACADEMY STUDENTS SAY
"I decided I’d like to take flying lessons on a Thursday, and after a call to FlightGest I was sitting in the left seat of a Cessna 172 with a glass cockpit and a 150 foot wide runway in front of me the next day. Best decision I ever made.
I loved training at RDU with FlightGest for my Private Pilot License and Instrument Rating. My instructors worked with my full-time work schedule, flying early morning, late afternoon, and sometimes back to back days on weekends. I can’t recommend highly enough the experience that comes with learning to fly at a Class C airport. It gave me confidence even as a student pilot I would have taken years to develop if I had trained at a smaller airport. I became a student pilot in my late 40s, so I didn’t have years to waste! The absolute joy of flying I developed through my experiences with FlightGest made me want more than straight and level, point A to point B travels. I learned to fly tailwheel in a Husky. I took aerobatics lessons from one of the best aerobatic pilots in the world. I bought my own plane that I fly off a short grass strip. I am a coordinator for a formation flying team. Next, I’ll be pursuing my commercial rating in my own airplane with a FlightGest CFI. After that, who knows? But the whole FlightGest team will no doubt be part of it."
