Plans and Pricing

Why spin training?

Well, for an initial CFI certificate it is required anyway (FAR 61.183). So, if you plan to be a CFI you must get it at some point, whether during your private, instrument or commercial training. Besides, if you were put into a spin right now, how would you react? Spin training can be used to simulate real-world risks. Distractions, cross controlled stalls turning base to final, accelerated stalls, and incorrect stall recoveries are potential life-threatening events if you enter a spin and do not know how to recover. Spin training with a CFI with experience in the field is critical to enhancing pilot safety and risk avoidance.

 

Tailwheel Training- How will a tailwheel endorsement make me a better pilot?

You will learn to use the rudder more precisely for coordinated flight and increase awareness of the wind and how it affects the aircraft in the two most critical phases of flight- takeoff and landing. A tailwheel aircraft is much less forgiving when accounting for wind than a tri-cycle gear aircraft and forces the pilot to be more focused and aware.

 

Aerobatic Training

Flying aerobatics develops stick and rudder skills and helps pilots avoid and react to emergency situations and unusual attitudes. Not to mention no roller coaster even comes close to the adrenaline rush of your first loop, barrel roll or inverted flight. Do it because it is fun!

“I absolutely CANNOT say enough good things about this operation! Just got my CFI from them, and had fun doing it (which I’m told is not a common phenomenon). It took minimal time, and the cost was about what you’d expect to pay at American Flyers, or ATP for CFI. However, the quality of training you will receive here will far exceed the standard of the “pilot mills”. Larry was my primary instructor but I also flew with Josh, Durant and Mike, all of whom were very knowledgeable and professional (in addition being “down to earth”, and cool). Look no further than these guys for all of your flight training needs! They’re awesome!!!” - Damian W.

Taking into account the excellent rental rates for quality aircraft, with highly experienced staff, it is truly safe to say Tampa Bay Aviation is one of the top Flight Schools in the nation!” ~ Jose A.
“Tampa Bay Aviation is an excellent operation. My son did his flight training here last summer and earned his Private Pilot License, and it inspired me to learn to fly as well. The instructors are excellent, the aircraft are up to date and the staff is friendly and helpful. We have recommended them to several friends and they have had excellent experiences as well. Overall, it is a great place to fly. i HIGHLY recommend it!” - Eric M.
