FAA Gold Seal Master Flight Instructor Greg Collins, ATP, CSES, CFI, CFII, MEI, A&P IA - $45 per hour

Over 10,000 hours of instruction given, with a 97% first time pass rate. Dozens and dozens of local references available. When you select an instructor, ask the instructor how many successful checkrides he or she has signed off in the last 6 months.  Is your instructor full time and available 7 days a week to meet your schedule? Speak to the instructor's former students and verify how many hours they finished with, and how they feel about the training they received. The FAA minimums are quite possible with a highly experienced instructor and proper training.

I am happy to work with aircraft owner's at any area airport - Asheville, Hendersonville, Rutherfordton, Brevard, Transylvania, Greenville, Spartanburg,  Jackson and Pickens County Airport.

Financing is available through Pilot Finance

Pilot Finance

Blue Ridge Sport Flight requires that all SOLO Champ renters carry "Non-owned Aircraft Insurance" at all times.  Renter's insurance is NOT required when you are receiving instruction in the Champ.  This insurance is very affordable, generally a little more than $1 per day, and readily available through Avemco, AOPA, and EAA.  We can help arrange the insurance.

GIFT CERTIFICATES are available.  Flying makes a great gift!  Please be aware that gift certificates are non refundable.
