Learn to Fly

Pinnacle Aviation Academy has trained thousands of people to fly for fun, for business and for careers in aviation.

With a Private Pilot Certificate, you may take passengers on day or night flights in visual conditions.

The Instrument Rating expands your experience by permitting flight in clouds and instrument approaches to airports.

The Commercial Pilot Certificate allows a pilot to be paid for their flying services.

The Multi-Engine Rating Add On will allow you to fly a Multi-Engine aircraft.

For those that want to gain hours or go into a career as a pilot, a Flight Instructor Certificate is the next step for many to Teach Private and Commercial Single Engine Airplane.

Then CFII for teaching Instrument students and MEI for teaching Multi engine Ratings.

You do not need to have perfect vision and super human capabilities to fly general aviation aircraft.

A physical exam is required, but most people with correctable vision and reasonable health pass the exam with “flying colors”.

General Aviation is a challenge and adventure for the entire family.

We see an increasing number of Father/Sons, Mother/Daughters and Husband/Wife teams learning to fly.

Some pilots choose to purchase aircraft or buy into an aircraft partnership.

Pinnacle Aviation Academy is a Cessna Pilot Center and can provide you with factory fresh Cessna Single Engine Aircraft.

Many new pilots prefer to rent different types aircraft.

Once again we can meet your requirements!

Whether your choice is a Cessna 152, Cessna 172, or Cessna 182, we have the aircraft on line and available for rent after completing your flight training.

A short checkout is usually all that is needed for aircraft rental.

We are pleased to support groups such as “The 99’s” and “Women in Aviation”.

More so even today, women are finding out how much fun it is to learn to fly.

We are excited to have women representing Pinnacle Aviation Academy in our instructor staff and management team.
