The one classroom you never want to leave.
The history of aviation is filled with names of women who dared greatly and broke barriers. Jackie Cochran, Bessie Coleman, Betty Skelton, Eileen Collins, Sally Ride, Patty Wagstaff, Evelyn Johnson, Debbie Gary, Harriet Quimby, Julie Clark, Pancho Barnes, Jerrie Mock, and the entire WASP service group just to name a few of aviation's great trailblazers.
If you know a woman who has always been interested in learning how to fly, schedule time to visit with our chief pilot Vicky. She can show them exactly how they too can pursue their dreams of flying and become licensed pilots.
Allison became the world's newest private pilot last week at our PVD facility! We couldn't be happier for her. She persevered and got the job done right before the big storm hit. Well done, Allison and great job to instructors Scott, Heather, and Rikki who each played a role in helping Allison complete her training.
During a Private Pilot training course, you'll learn how to navigate on "cross country" flights that send you at least 50 miles from home. What is the furthest airport you've flown to?
Don't miss the February meeting of our IMC Club happening TONIGHT!!! We'll discuss the dreaded amended clearance! 6:30pm at Hanscom Field.
Every good flight starts with a thorough pre-flight inspection. Evaluating ourselves is just as important as looking over the airplane. Students are taught the "IMSAFE" acronym to make sure they are ready to fly. Who knows what "IMSAFE" stands for?
We have an immediate opening on our team for a ramp agent. You will help ensure our customers receive the best experience possible by keeping the airplanes fueled, clean and ready for flight. Call us today at 781-274-7227 to learn more.
Stop whatever you're doing at 1:30pm today (unless you're flying) and tune in to watch SpaceX launch their Falcon Heavy rocket. This will be the most powerful rocket (if it works) in the world by a factor of two. The launch is only the beginning. All three booster sections of the rocket will return to Earth and land vertically for reuse. This is science fiction come to life.
The YouTube video linked below will be the live broadcast of the launch once it goes live.
When Falcon Heavy lifts off, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 m...
AOPA: your freedom to fly has announced their 2018 scholarship opportunities. They have programs that can fund primary or advanced training. Get your application together and submitted by the May 2nd deadline! Please let us know if we can help you with your application.
aopa.org AOPA has announced that applications will be accepted starting Feb. 1 for three scholarship programs, two to help student pilots in training earn their initial pilot certificate, and a new scholarship program to help certificated pilots achieve an advanced certificate or rating.
We get an occasional interesting visitor at PVD. Is there any airplane more majestic than a Boeing 747?
A group of students toured the fire station at TF Green Airport last week. Its one thing to see these guys patrolling the field, but when you get to see their equipment up close and learn about their operations, it increases your understanding of the airport environment, and helps make you a more complete pilot. Thank you for hosting us!
How often do you take the long way home just so that you can go by the airport?
Is there a better way to start a weekend than with your first solo flight? Todd soloed at our Norwood facility on Friday with CFI watching from the ground. Great job, Todd!
We have students of all ages learning to fly. For some, they are pursuing something they have always wanted to do. Others, like Jaden are trading out video games for the real thing. Whatever your age, we're ready to show you what pure joy feels like.
Are you working towards a career in aviation? The Fitchburg Pilots Association may be able to help.
Alex and Jon from our PVD facility along with their friend RJ visited the New England Air Museum last week in Windsor Locks, CT. They took a Cessna 172 into Bradley (KBDL), hopped on a shuttle over to the museum and enjoyed "open cockpit day" where you get to sit in many of the museums collection of warbirds and classic aircraft. How many of you would like to make a similar day trip in the new year?
Before the ball dropped in Times Square, Mike was able to squeeze in his first solo flight, the last one of 2017. Congratulations to Mike, and every one of our students who made 2017 their own. Now, who has their flying goals set for 2018?

Sims gave himself an amazing holiday gift this year by passing a check ride and getting a freshly minted Certified Flight Instructor license! Well done, Sims!
Twas the night before Christmas, and out on the ramp, Not an airplane was stirring, not even a Champ. The aircraft were fastened to tiedowns with care, In hopes that come morning, they all would be there.
The fuel trucks were nestled, all snug in their spots, With gusts from two-forty at 39 knots. I slumped at the fuel desk, now finally caught up, And settled down comfortably, resting my butt.
When the radio lit up with noise and with chatter, I turned up the scanner to see what was the matter. A voice clearly heard over static and snow, Called for clearance to land at the airport below.
He barked his transmission so lively and quick, I'd have sworn that the call sign he used was "St. Nick". I ran to the panel to turn up the lights, The better to welcome this magical flight.
He called his position, no room for denial, "St. Nicholas One, turnin' left onto final." And what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a Rutan-built sleigh, with eight Rotax Reindeer!
With vectors to final, down the glideslope he came, As he passed all fixes, he called them by name: "Now Ringo! Now Tolga! Now Trini and Bacun! On Comet! On Cupid!" What pills was he takin'?
While controllers were sittin', and scratchin' their head, They phoned to my office, and I heard it with dread, The message they left was both urgent and dour: "When Santa pulls in, have him please call the tower."
He landed like silk, with the sled runners sparking, Then I heard "Left at Charlie," and "Taxi to parking."
He slowed to a taxi, turned off of three-oh And stopped on the ramp with a "Ho, ho-ho-ho..."
He stepped out of the sleigh, but before he could talk, I ran out to meet him with my best set of chocks. His red helmet and goggles were covered with frost And his beard was all blackened from Reindeer exhaust.
His breath smelled like peppermint, gone slightly stale, And he puffed on a pipe, but he didn't inhale. His cheeks were all rosy and jiggled like jelly, His boots were as black as a cropduster's belly.
He was chubby and plump, in his suit of bright red, And he asked me to "fill it, with hundred low-lead." He came dashing in from the snow-covered pump, I knew he was anxious for drainin' the sump.
I spoke not a word, but went straight to my work, And I filled up the sleigh, but I spilled like a jerk. He came out of the restroom, and sighed in relief, Then he picked up a phone for a Flight Service brief.
And I thought as he silently scribed in his log, These reindeer could land in an eighth-mile fog. He completed his pre-flight, from the front to the rear, Then he put on his headset, and I heard him yell, "Clear!"
And laying a finger on his push-to-talk, He called up the tower for clearance and squawk. "Take taxiway Charlie, the southbound direction, Turn right three-two-zero at pilot's discretion"
He sped down the runway, the best of the best, "Your traffic's a Grumman, inbound from the west." Then I heard him proclaim, as he climbed through the night, "Merry Christmas to all! I have traffic in sight."
You can wrap this feeling up and put it under the tree with one of our Gift Certificates. Our office is open until 1pm Christmas Eve for last minute shoppers!
Only a few shopping days in the holiday season! Don't miss your chance to give someone a gift they'll remember forever with our one-hour introductory flight lesson for only $199. Call us today! (781) 274-7227
Happy birthday, aviation.
#OTD in 1903, Orville Wright lifted their powered flying machine into the air for the first time as his brother Wilbur ran alongside in Kitty Hawk, NC. The event, witnessed by only a handful of onlookers from the nearby Coast Guard station, would change the world in ways the two brothers from Ohio could have never imagined.
"More than anything else the sensation is one of perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost, if you can conceive of such a combination." ~ Wilbur Wright
Best things to do with your pilot license: #4 Take your friend flying for the first time. Who have you taken flying?
Two of our PVD students, RJ and Dale flew one of the most interesting flights in the country. They traversed the legendary "Hudson VFR Corridor" under crystal clear skies. The Hudson Corridor allows aircraft to travel along the Hudson River on the west side of Manhattan, underneath the airspace controlled by JFK, La Guardia, and Newark airports. It is a busy environment but one of those experiences that you will never forget.
It's beginning to look a lot like...a pilot! Ben took a huge step towards that goal last week when he flew his first solo flight at our Norwood, MA facility. Great job, Ben!

There has never been a better time to start working towards a career as a pilot.
"It’s really a buyers’ market and the buyer is the pilot now.”
reuters.com Business jet operators, already offering double digit raises to attract pilots, could face a labor shortfall in North America as they compete with U.S. airlines for talent, executives and analysts said.
It is never too late to get back into the air.
Mark started his flight training as a teenager in 1983 at Tew Mac Airport (Tewksbury MA). He soloed in 1984 even completed a few solo cross-country flights. Life then took precedence over flying, as it so often does. He completed his education, started in his profession, married and added three children to the family.
His youngest daughter started college this past fall, and Mark wasted no time in resuscitating the flying bug. He found his way onto our schedule, and flew his first flight (second round) on September 23rd. He purchased a Private Pilot Training Kit and restarted his training with intention. Around 10 hours into it, he has completed his pre-solo progress check and is ready for another solo followed by new cross country challenges.
Keith visited us all the way from Malta to spend some time in our Super Decathlon exploring the outer edge of the flight envelope. Thanks for flying with us, Keith!
