Who We Are
At AlphaFlight, family and flying are linked — whether by genetics or by the grace of God. Grounded in a combined seven decades of aviation experience including flying military fighter jets and legacy airlines; working for and designing pilot training programs for regional carriers, offering in-depth aviation industry knowledge that translates into a unique approach to student training.
Everything we do as a Part 141 flight school is backed by the industry mechanics of flying as well as teaching the fundamentals that help us connect as humans and, as pilots. A key component of our training approach is the Symbiotics ADAPT Aviation Assessment tool that we incorporate into the enrollment process. For our Private Pilot and Career Pilot students, we’ll use this aptitude test to learn how familiar you are with aviation training so we can personalize our teaching approach. In the end you’ll be better prepared for what lies ahead.
This early first step allows you and AlphaFlight instructors to evaluate potential barriers to help you decide if becoming a Pilot is the right career. We’ll work with you to identify the right career in aviation before you’ve invested sums of money and time on flight training only to find your skills are better suited in another aviation career.
