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.



Blue Skies Flying Services have repeated last year’s AOPA award as Best in the Midwest!

CFII and Chief Flight Instructor Mike Biewenga was not only awarded as BEST in the MIDWEST, but in the NATION!

CFII Jim Fellers and CFII Joseph J, Zubay were also recognized as distinguished flight instructors!

We are beyond excited, proud, and THANKFUL to our extended Blue Skies family—students, pilots, staff, and their family and friends!

Congratulations on our Members’ Accomplishments!




Blue Skies is an award winning flight school with some of the best instructors in the industry. We pride ourselves on making our students feel like part of the Blue Skies family during flight training and beyond. While training at Blue Skies, you will have access to a well maintained fleet of aircraft that are perfect for student pilots. Blue Skies also has an FAA approved simulator that can be used during Instrument training.




Our superbly maintained fleet of aircraft ranges in complexity from single-engine 2-seat trainers to 4-seat, all-weather engine airplanes. Our aircraft are equipped with modern avionics—most planes have GPS, autopilot, and 4-place intercoms.
