A note from Tom Hicks - founding
member of the new AIA:
You want to start flying but you're asking yourself questions like:
- Can I commit the time to it?
- Can I afford it?
- How hard is it to learn everything needed?
- Am I going to be a safe pilot?
- What kind of plane would I want to fly?
These are some of the questions I had not very
long ago when I finally decided to fly. All of my life I dreamed of
being a pilot but at 20 years old with a child I could not afford the time and expense to pursue aviation. So I chose motorcycling and
made a career out of it. When I was 55 I took a Discovery Flight and that was it! I started my flight lessons the next week. I asked myself
all of the questions above and more and simply decided ďlife is too short not toĒ I now have my Pilotís certificate
and am soon to be Instrument rated. Iím hooked! So much so that I purchased a Flight School because of the things that I saw schools
needed to improve upon. Having been, and still being, a student I appreciate what people go through to make the dream a reality and I am
driven to make sure that anyone who wants to fly gets the best experience possible so they donít miss out on years of fun and exhilaration.
Choosing to fly was one of the best decisions I ever made and that feeling, when I became a Pilot, was indescribable. Flying is beyond
imagination. So if you are thinking you want to learn to fly take our Discovery Flight and I know you will discover what I did and probably
kick yourself for not doing it sooner! I did!
Fly - because life is too short not to!
