Learn to Fly at Rochester Aviation
You may be asking yourself, "Can anyone learn to fly?" The answer is, "Yes!"
At Rochester Aviation, we offer two flight training aircraft... A Cessna 150 with a 100HP engine and an IFR-certified Cessna 172 with a 150HP engine.
We offer on-line scheduling so you can book your aircraft and instructor at your convenience. If you prefer, you can also call us to book your next flight lesson. We have flexible flight training hours and work hard to accommodate your schedule.
Schedule an Introductory Flight
If you have never been in a small aircraft, this is a great opportunity! The introductory experience is approximately two hours at the airport. It begins with meeting your instructor. You will receive a twenty minute introduction to the principles of flight as well as conduct a pre-flight check of the aircraft. The introductory flight is one hour in the airplane while experiencing take-off, turning, climbing, descending and landing. You will also be given a turn at the controls! After the flight, you will have a de-briefing with your instructor, after which you can schedule your next flight!
Your Flight Training
Our experienced instructors teach at an individualized pace that will meet both the FAA requirements for certification as well as your personal goals in aviation. While the required 40 hours of flight time required to obtain your private pilot's certificate may not seem like a lot, in reality, there's more time required to obtain your license than purely flight time. You'll have ground school, aircraft pre-flight procedures, weather induced lesson cancellations, commute time to and from the airport, etc.
