Flight Instruction

Many commercial flight schools tell prospective students that they can drop in any time and fly with an instructor.  This is not quite the convenience that it may seem, since any time you fly with a new instructor you will have to spend the first half of each lesson showing the new instructor how far your training has progressed so far, a process that must be repeated whenever you fly with a different instructor.  In addition, many commercial flight instructors are working to accumulate sufficient flight time to qualify for other aviation jobs, and may leave a student for another job part way through the training process.  At Panther Aero your flight training will be conducted by one instructor who will remain with you throughout your training program.


Many flying clubs require a new member to purchase a share of the aircraft for thousands of dollars.  Panther Aero bought its planes with a bank loan which we paid off years ago.  Members pay only the hourly rental costs and monthly dues and other fees.  No purchase of a share of the aircraft is required. In addition, our costs are lower since we have no paid employees or need to make a profit.
