Next Gen Training - Only from Performance Flight
The way that flight schools teach people how to fly has not changed much for decades. At Performance Flight we are innovating by integrating technology with training material. We recently moved into a brand-new state-of-the-art office with the latest technology including Smart Boards. This allows us to teach in a way that has never been done before. Flight instructors and students can mark-up airport diagrams and sectionals when planning flights. We are also leveraging photography and video equipment by rigging our planes with Go Pro cameras. This allows us to review what a student did frame by frame after lessons during the post-flight briefing.

“I can't recommend Performance Flight highly enough! I think it's a great school to come learn at and a great facility to continue flight. You can rent planes after you get your pilot's license, you can continue your training on to instrument training and whatever you want to learn.”
