"It is the greatest shot of adrenaline to be doing what you have wanted to do so
badly. You almost feel like you could fly without the plane."
- Charles Lindbergh
Pegasus Flight is proud to offer flight instruction services featuring the most modern aircraft, highly experienced instructors, and a proven curriculum that will allow you to earn your airplane private pilot’s license in a very reasonable timeframe and at a highly affordable and competitive price.
Thanks to its excellent reliability and forgiving handling, our Cessna 172 Skyhawk is an ideal aircraft to learn how fly in. Its high wing design gives it superb visibility from the cockpit and stable flight characteristics that are ideal for training purposes. The Skyhawk is also the most produced aircraft in history, with over 43,000 manufactured since it was introduced in 1955.
Our company employs six veteran flight instructors with outstanding safety records and exceptional flying skills. You will benefit from learning to fly from truly seasoned mentors with real world experience and expert insight.
You will gain valuable knowledge by learning to fly out of the centrally located Linden Airport. You will be trained to communicate with the different controllers in the New York airspace. Imagine being able to talk to Air Traffic Control (ATC) just like the "airline professional". You will learn a professional vocabulary that you will be able to use almost anywhere. Additionally, you will experience all four seasons and all types of weather but will avoid some of the harsher conditions that are often associated with more challenging areas such as Boston.
We are FAA Part 61 Certified and offer a personal and flexible approach that gets you the training you need. Currently, we are in the process of becoming FAA Part 141 Certified and expect to have our curriculum FAA approved and standardized by the end of this 2009. You can read about the difference between Part 61 and Part 141 certification here.
We offer fully online lesson scheduling using Paperless141.com, our flight instruction booking system. You can immediately view all open time slots and instantly schedule the best time for you. Once you have signed up for Flight Instruction with us, we will send you instructions for how to access this system. If you prefer, you can book lessons over the phone.
Pegasus Flight has all the handbooks, training manuals, test materials and instructions you need to earn your desired license or rating. Additionally, headsets will be provided to new students for the first few introductory flights. If you choose to continue with your lessons, we also have headsets available for purchase.
Pegasus Flight is proud to provide flight instruction services to foreign students who have been approved by the Transportation Safety Authority. If you are a foreign student, you may begin the approval process by registering on the TSA website. During the application process you will need to have your fingerprint and photograph taken and will need to obtain TSA approval before starting your flight lessons with us.
