Our Philosophy

We at Blue Skies Flying Services believe that flying is FUN and we try to teach that way, too. When it stops being fun, we will stop flying. The excitement you feel on the first flight should continue through all your flying. We work to keep that up. At the same time, we approach each flight lesson in a professional manner because the Private Pilot certificate can be the first step toward a career in aviation.
