Excellence & Professionalism

We at Four Winds Aviation have always taken great pride in the flight school we've created. We're family owned and operated with over 2 decades of training experience rooted in tail wheel and aerobatic instruction. On top of that, we know firsthand what it takes to become a full-time, professional pilot. 

 

We say all of this because our students are more than just a source of revenue to us. Our school presents aspiring and licensed pilot's alike with unique opportunities, both professionally and recreationally, so flying always remains fulfilling.

Spend your training dollar wisely

DFW's airspace is exceptionally busy. This means students are often left waiting for takeoff clearances before flying to the practice area, all while the plane is running and training costs are incurring.

 

These operations are inherent to flying, but Four Winds has the advantage over the competition with reduced ground operations due to a smaller airfield, as well as ease of access to areas safe for practicing maneuvers. Over the course of a new rating, this translates into more efficient training and money kept in your pocket. 

Personalized approach

Flight instruction can be stressful and overwhelming at times. Couple these facts with ineffective instruction and it's easy to see why aspiring pilots can lose sight of their dream and become discouraged. 

 

Here at Four Winds, we recognize the pressures of flight training and the differences in learning preferences amongst our students. As such, we take the time to find which of our Instructors will best fit your needs and tailor our training plans to fit into your life.
