The Flight Academy

Our mission is to produce safer, more proficient Cirrus pilots through specialized training of the highest quality.

The Flight Academy was founded in 2002 by former Cirrus Aircraft instructors. Our mission is to produce safer, more proficient pilots through specialized training of the highest quality.

Since 2002 we have been working with clients all over the United States and across the world, using our passion for aviation education to provide top-level customer service. We believe in safety as the number one goal of training with having fun as a close second.

All of our instructors are experienced, professional educators who know Cirrus aircraft inside and out. We pride ourselves on being experts not just with the aircraft but also with the teaching process.

The Flight Academy is a boutique flight school which doesn’t train in the traditional manner. Our specialty is working with busy clients with busy schedules. To do this, we map out a plan to achieve the training objectives, tailor the schedule to our clients’ lives, and then train in full day or multi-day blocks of time to achieve the objective.

We’re experts in different facets of aviation. Not only do we teach people how to fly, we also deliver aircraft around the world, have group adventure trips, provide buyer’s agent services to help pilots acquire aircraft, staff personal pilots for 3 months to a year with an individual client, and can work as consultants and problems solvers for any other aviation need.

Learning to fly should be an enjoyable process with the outcome of helping our clients see the world in ways they’d never imagined. The new lifestyle accessible to pilots is a wondrous one filled with adventure, beauty, and a new definition of efficiency. The Flight Academy specializes in opening up that world to our clients.

Practicing some commercial maneuvers around the Olympic Mountains with the Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier off our wing. Makes for a great reference point!

What are your favorite winter flying sights? Here's one of ours- cloud formations above Mt. Rainier in late January.

Another day packed with learning at the Cirrus CX. Today we have heard from the CEO of Cirrus, Dale Klapmeier, and lots of info about the SF50, the new Perspective+ avionics, the changes to the new G6, and covered some useful safety info and stats.

Thank you and great work to the Cirrus employees who made today a great one.

Day one of the Cirrus CX meeting complete. Great presentations by the Cirrus crew and some good stats about CAPS use.

This looks like fun. The Garmin Vision avionics suite is going to be intuitive for current Cirrus Perspective and G1000 pilots.

The layout of the flight deck will also be intuitive for a current Cirrus pilot. As Dale says: if you can fly an SR22T, you're overqualified.

We reserved a compact car. Here's what that means in Knoxville.
