About Our School
It started with an idea…
At Airlink Flight School we are here to provide the training you need to make your
dreams as a pilot come true. Let Airlink help you create your life story one flight at a time.
We all started where you are now. Whether you want to fly for business, or just for the sheer thrill of soaring above the ground, it all begins with the initial training for your Private Pilot’s License. Our training includes both Flight and Ground lessons, all training materials, the successful passing of the FAA knowledge exam and final preparation for your checkride with our FAA designated examiner.
To be absolutely alone for the first time in the cockpit of a plane hundreds of feet above the ground is an experience never to be forgotten.
