TriState Aviation is a small, but busy flight school located between Manhattan and Philadelphia. We operate a very clean, well maintained fleet consisting of C152s and C172 for our private pilot training. Our Arrow II is the perfect aircraft to complete the IFR and Commercial requirements our students are seeking as they prepare to move through their ratings to become commercial pilots. Our instructors are well suited for our operation. They work well together and have the type of disposition we seek for our students. Though we prefer to have a student remain with one instructor throughout their training program, instructors will assist each other with those students that are having difficulty adjusting to a required maneuver in our syllabus. It’s not uncommon to hear them talk to each other about the level their students are at, where they need help and where they excel. We encourage that line of communication between instructors so we all remain on the same page with our program. We have a number of interns responsible for a multitude of tasks in our building and on the field. Washing floors, cutting grass, pre-heating planes, refueling aircraft, taking out the garbage, detailing planes are just a few of the chores our interns are responsible for. We want a clean building, clean planes, smooth operations and a seamless transfer from one student to another. In exchange for their work, they receive free use of the aircraft as we encourage youth in our community to fly knowing that they are our future in aviation. We stress the idea of ‘community’ on the airfield and in our neighborhood. It’s not uncommon to find a few seasoned pilots sitting in our lounge, sharing stories with students and encouraging them to take their training seriously. We have an open-door policy for pilots on the field as well as people visiting the airport. We welcome anyone to sit on our patio and watch planes land and depart throughout the day. We are very involved in community projects and host a number of events throughout the year to recognize our veteran service men and women as well as providing an amazing Santa Fly-In for the kids in our community. Unlike other schools in the area, we don’t depend on fuel sales, hangar rent and tie-down fees to supplement our income. We don’t own the airport and rely solely on our productivity with our school as income. It’s important that we hold a higher standard in order to be a success in this arena. Whether you want to build your hours to be able to fly for the airlines or looking for a semi-retirement income to hold you over while maintaining your passion for flying, our doors are open. We’re certain that once you visit us and learn about our school, you won’t be going elsewhere for a position as a flight instructor. Please drop by or contact us for more information.
