Flight Training

At PropJet 210 Aviation safety is our top priority. We provide flight training, recurrent training, and refresher courses to keep you knowledgeable and prepared for whatever might come your way. Our flight instructor, Gil Lucas, is a very experienced pilot with over 10,000 hours of flight time and will make it easy to transition from a piston plane to a Silver Eagle. To find out more about our Flight Training call or email us.
