The Flight Academy Videos

Videos by The Flight Academy in Seattle. Our mission is to produce safer, more proficient Cirrus pilots through specialized training of the highest quality.

Sometimes getting up early is worth it. Here we are climbing through 12,000 feet early Saturday morning. You'll see Rainier peeking out of the cloud tops a few seconds in.

The lower right corner should allow an option to see this in HD if you'd like. We'd recommend it!

We had some chores to take care of today that delayed our departure- such is the life of a ferry pilot. We did get to take a tour of the assembly line though; lots of planes coming down the line! We launch at 0630 tomorrow morning.

#CirrusLife Wine Country Adventure Tour 2016
Our #CirrusLife Wine Country Adventure tour has drawn to a close. What a fantastic trip- we traveled to amazing places and admired the natural beauty of the country along the way, made new friends, saw a stunning show, went whale watching, had excellent meals, and the best part: we did it all on our own schedule. This is what the Cirrus Life is all about! We have lots more to show you, and will post more pictures from our adventure in the days to come. Thanks to our great group of adventurers for joining us this year. We had a wonderful time with all of you! Want to join us next time, or learn more? Send us a message or email to We'd love to have you along!
