As of April 1st, 2016 all student pilots that have not already obtained a paper student pilot certificate will need a plastic student pilot certificate prior to starting training.  Please contact Greg as soon as you start considering flight training, even if you are not certain when, or if, you will start training, so that we can start the application process.  There is no obligation to start training, and the certificate does not expire.

FAA Gold Seal Master Instructor Greg Collins, ATP, CSES, CFII, MEI, A&P IA

Over 12,000 hours of instruction given, with a 97% first time pass rate. Dozens and dozens of 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 a dedicated student.

Some Recent Feedback -

I don't think I could have went anywhere to get better training! Greg is a top notch instructor! I had a great experience training with Greg, I finished in a short amount of time for a great price! I highly recommend Blue Ridge Sport Flight! - Aaron A.  Veedersburg, Indiana

His training was everything he advertises and more. I think it is a rare thing when you can find someone so knowledgeable in so many facets of their field. In addition to being very patient and gently shaping my flying abilities he knew every aspect of his airplanes, inside and out.   Rob W., New York

I could not be happier about my time spent with Greg Collins at Blue Ridge Sport Flight! I obtained my private license in 11 days. Researching the time and expenses for an aspiring pilot just to obtain a private license is enough to turn someone away from going any further. However, I can say that for the 11 days I spent at B.R.S.F. I had far less time and money invested than someone spreading their training out over several months or years.  Scott B. Valdosta, Georgia

Greg is a great instructor. Absolutely no nonsense approach in the air and on the ground. Bring your "A" game and you WILL learn to fly well and you WILL learn efficiently! Even if you have a "B" game day, Greg'll get you through it! - Jeff B.  Decatur, Georgia

Like most flight schools, Blue Ridge Sport Flight does not carry hull insurance in favor of the student.  We require that all SOLO renters carry "Non-owned Aircraft Insurance" at all times.  Renter's insurance is NOT required when an instructor is in the airplane.  This insurance is very affordable, generally about $1 per day, and readily available through Avemco, AOPA, and EAA.  I can help arrange and explain the insurance.

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