Our instructors follow AMA best practices where by using the “buddy box” method for flight instruction. The “buddy box” system allows instructors and student pilots to use a pilot-copilot system before, during and post flight. This insures all pre-flight checklists, in flight training and post flight safety routines are followed and enforced properly and in compliance with AMA rules. From taxiing, to takeoff, to touch down, your instructor will be by your side.
