Flight Instruction

Interested in learning how to fly — or increasing your current skills? The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires you meet specific criteria in order to earn a pilot’s certificate. MacAir Aviation offers flight instruction to help you gain the knowledge and skills needed to succeed.


Regardless of which pilot certificate you pursue, your program will include:


  • Ground school, which prepares you for the written knowledge test.

  • Flying with an instructor, which prepares you for the practical skills test.


We also offer Cirrus Training from our Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots (CSIPs).


Part 141 Flight Training Program

As a Part 141 flight training program, we offer private, commercial, instrument, and air transport pilot certificates, as well as a certified flight instructor rating certificate, under FAA-approved syllabi. That means you'll gain knowledge and skills from highly experienced, helpful instructors — and have a lot of fun in the process.

Private Pilot Certificate
With a private pilot certificate, you may fly in good weather conditions (called VFR or visual flight rules). You may carry passengers and baggage, but you may not fly for hire; operating expenses must be equally shared with your passengers.

Instrument Rating
With an instrument rating, you are able to fly according to instrument flight rules (IFR) — in other words, you are able to fly when the weather is poor.

Commercial Pilot Certificate
The commercial pilot certificate allows you to fly for hire as part of a Part 135 operation.

Multi-engine Pilot Certificate
The multi-engine pilot certificate allows you to fly airplanes with more than one engine.

Air Transport Pilot Certificate
Take the next step in building your qualifications on the path to being an airline pilot with a single-engine ATP. To learn about next steps, contact us at 937-581-6865.

Certified Flight Instructor
Interested in becoming a flight instructor? Contact us at 937-581-6865 to learn about next steps, based upon your background and flight experience. Former military instructors may also be able to earn FAA equivalent credit through a military competency program.
