Step 2: Chief Pilot Interview

The Chief Pilot interview helps us to determine your fit into our flight training philosophy as well as our fit to your individual needs. Every potential student has a different set of goals and this interview ensures that we can meet those goals in order to provide you with a seamless and worry-free flight training experience. Sometimes it is determined that we may not be the best fit for your goals and so we will recommend other flight training organizations that one, we trust, and two, that we feel can best accommodate your goals.
