FLIGHT TRAINING

TAKE YOUR FLYING DREAM INTO REALITY

Hundreds of adventuresome people have earned their wings through the Fargo Jet Center – Flight Training School. No matter if you’re flying for recreation or career advancement, we’re the place for you.

  • Students learn in new-model Cessna training aircraft
  • Cessna’s web-based instruction course allows our students to train at home at their own pace

You can learn to fly at many airports, but Fargo’s Hector International Airport presents a fun, challenging learning experience.

Looking for assistance with flying? AOPA offers scholarships to high school students, teachers, primary flight training students, and pilots pursuing advanced ratings or certificates. 

LEARN FROM THE BEST

Advisory Note: you will need a medical certificate before flying solo in an airplane. We suggest you get complete this before beginning flight training. This will alert you to any condition that would prevent you from becoming a pilot before you begin your lessons. 

Congratulations to our flight school team for earning a spot in the 2019 Flight Training Experience Awards as a Distinguished Flight School!
