Instructors

The Charlottesville Flight Center offers basic and advanced flight instruction. We can take you from a first time student through all aspects of flight training: Private, Instrument and Commercial. We do it all and can help you every step of the way.

We love to fly and more importantly, we love to pass on the passion of aviation.
