Flying for a Career
Many aspiring pilots have dreams of taking their passion for aviation and making it into a career. The good news is that the outlook has never been better for hopeful commercial pilots. In 2018, Boeing projected a demand for 790,000 pilots over the next 20 years.
“The club aircraft are so well taken care of - with 50-hour oil changes, 100-hour inspections and always going above and beyond what is required and called for. Not only makes the aircraft more reliable but also provides a feeling of safety and security ”
