Loved this great opportunity at such a great price too. CFI Seth was friendly and knowledgeable. He explained everything about the preflight check, safety, controls, and the basics of flight to me in simple terms. I purchased this lesson as a tribute to my father who died recently after a lifelong career in aviation. It was a thrill for me to spend a few minutes actually flying the plane - like he did for 60 years.

About St. Charles Flying Service

At one time, St. Charles Flying Service's airport was a training base for World War II pilots during the early 1940s. Today, several vintage WWII aircraft still call the facility home, as does Boeing, which utilizes the grounds to test its own planes for modern-day military operations. Surrounded by aviation benchmarks both past and present, St. Charles Flying Service passes on the gift of flight to students with flight training for single and multiengine aircraft. From light sport to airline transport pilot, the facility's certified instructors help mold the pilots of tomorrow, who may also take advantage of open-enrollment ground courses.
