Are you ready to fly? Our highly trained CFIs are focused on your desired outcomes. They want to help you accomplish your aviation goals.

MEET THE REDCEL TEAM

Choosing a flight instructor is one of the most important steps in learning to fly. An instructor that you feel comfortable with is key to a successful flight training experience. A certified flight instructor (CFI) plays a huge role in the success of any aspiring pilot – not only do they play a pivotal role in you attaining your license, they also are responsible for keeping you safe in potentially dangerous situations. 

Our highly trained CFIs always approach their students with respect, enthusiasm and encouragement and are fully committed to your flying goals.
