Military & First Responders:
We are proud to offer a 5% discount off of aircraft rental rates to all military personnel/first responders! To take advantage of these savings, please bring in a copy of your work ID.
The aircraft available for overnight excursions are N6026S, N1025V, N739CL and N95FC. We encourage you to take these aircraft overnight and on long trips to appreciate the freedom being a pilot has to offer you and your family!
Please note: There are rental restrictions on our C172 Aircraft. We will continue to restrict any overnight flights on our training fleet and will also be enforcing daily minimums for reservations exceeding five hours. If you rent one of our C172 aircraft for the day, you will be able to schedule it for up to five hours without a minimum flight time requirement. If you schedule for over five hours, we will charge for up to ½ of the time that it was scheduled for. (Example; if you book the plane for six hours and only fly two hours, we will charge for three hours of flight time at the hourly rate for the aircraft used). This policy does not include mountain flight training.
Springs Aviation now offers a brand new simulator for on-the-ground pilot training. Our Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) is FAA approved, so some instruction given in the simulator may be logged toward certificates and ratings at a fraction of the cost of renting an airplane. This provides pilots a highly valuable tool in obtaining their certificates more cost effectively.
The simulator also allows students an alternative when bad weather sets in—keep training toward a certificate even when it’s too rough to fly!
Hourly rate for dual training on the simulator is $65, plus the cost of the flight instructor. After a thorough checkout with Springs Aviation instructors, pilots may use the simulator without a CFI present at CFI discretion. The rate at that point will be $90/hour with the pilots are not with a Springs Aviation representative.
Connect your iPad to the simulator so ForeFlight can work in tandem with your training. PilotEdge Live ATC is available by individual subscription for practicing ATC communications. The simulator offers more than 40 aircraft configurations, including twins! You can practice your single or multi-engine flows for thousands of dollars less when earning your commercial certificates. It also provides great refresher training for the pilots who rarely fly twin engines after they earn their certificates.
The simulator is now available for scheduling!
