Flight Training Services

Eric Nuffer, our Owner/Operator, holds CFII, MEI and Single Engine Sea ratings.  He acquired the time and experience in many different aircraft to be able to offer you customer centered instructional services.  He will challenge you in the cockpit while keeping the training experience fun.  Flight Training can be challenging, but it should always be fun. 

Ben Lamb joined the company in 2016. His experience in the Part 135 charter world helps connect his students with real world flying scenarios.  His positive, easy going attitude pays off in the airplane as he gets high remarks from his students. Ben focuses his energy on aircraft checkouts, air tours and primary students.

Caleb Funk brings his enthusiasm to the flight deck and instructs in our Cessna 172s and the RV12.  His knowledge of the area makes him a great Air Tour pilot.

Tyler Leach the final member of our flight instructor team.  He instructs in our 172s and our wonderful little Champ.  Tyler always has a smile and an infectious grin.

We provide quality Sport, Private, Instrument and Commercial Training in your plane or ours!  Earn a Sport Pilot Certificate in our beautiful new RV-12 SLSA or our Champ and then easily continue working towards your Private Pilot Certificate in the RV-12 or one of our two Cessnas.  All your training time towards your Sport Pilot Certificate counts towards future ratings. If you want to do Private, Instrument or Commercial training, then either of the Cessnas will help you get it done.  

During the long and cold Northern Michigan winters we offer Skiplane training in our Champ on wheel penetration skis.  Come give skiplane flying a try.
