Training Philosophy


Training Philosophy


"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

-Benjamin Franklin

Training like you've never experienced before.

Through our guided training method, we put you in charge of your learning. We don't ask you to memorize anything. We don't lecture. We present the facts and guide you to discover their implications. This is involved learning, and you're going to love it!

Upset prevention and recovery training is unlike any other type of training. Done correctly, it offers unsurpassed ability to combat situations that lead to loss of control accidents. We base our training on the industry standard Airplane Upset Recovery Training Aid and ICAO recommendations, applying those lessons to real life examples of loss of control accidents. Your time is too valuable to waste on hypothetical scenarios.

Dennis Mahan

Earning his private pilot certificate in 2006 and then completing his commercial and CFI certificates in 2011, Dennis has accumulated over 1,000 hours of instruction given and nearly 2,000 total flight hours. As Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilot and a chief flight instructor at a large 141 flight school, quality of training is his first priority.

Beginning in 2012, Dennis has been flying aerobatics in various aircraft including Citabria, Decathlon, and Pitts, as well as gliders.   

Dennis has spent several years as an active corporate pilot flying various high performance single-engine aircraft, covering most of the US and flying in all weather conditions.  

These unique experiences translate to an instructor that is familiar with the challenges pilots face in the real world, with the understanding of how to solve those challenges, and the ability to effectively teach those solutions.

Super Decathlon

The Super Decathlon is the perfect balance between aerobatic capability, and docile handling. It's characteristics replicate those of many modern high performance aircraft, making it an ideal training platform for pilots flying a wide variety of single engine aircraft.

Unrivaled capabilities

While we structure the training maneuvers around the performance limits of the aircraft you typically fly, the Super Decathlon's +6 -5 G limits allow a large safety envelope. 180hp and 1800 pounds give a climb rate of over 1,100 feet per minute, making the climb to altitude quick and efficient.

"The most fun I've had learning in an airplane, the most beneficial too.  I never realized how crucial this training could be, having never been in a spin before. I highly recommend this to new and seasoned pilots alike because it could be the difference in life or death."

"My advanced stall/spin training was easily the most fun I've had in my flight training thus far! Also I probably learned more on these flights than any other flights in the past 350+ hours."

Justin Martin

"If you have never done any UPRT training, you should highly consider doing it.  I'm confident that I have learned life saving lessons that if I ever find myself in a similar situation that I will make decisions that get me home to my family and get to fly another day."
