We are much more than just a flight school. We rent our aircraft for use to pilots with valid credentials who pass a proficiency flight with a company CFI. Once you have acheived your Private Pilot Certificate, you can use our aircraft to go somewhere fun! It is not uncommon for a student at Professional Air to go on to aircraft owner, to CFI, to corporate professional pilot, or even airline pilot! We are here to give you the training and the tools it takes, and to support you from beginning to end.
