Flight Training in Charleston

Achieve the dream in less time and at reduced cost, using 21st century technology and our professional flight instructors.

Flying isn’t difficult – it’s just different, and different is fixed through repetition. We learn everything through repetition, and that includes flying an airplane. Unfortunately, airplanes are terrible classrooms – it’s a noisy and anxious environment with so much to learn. An airplane is also a relatively expensive classroom. At CHS Flight School, we think that is a needless expense.

Instead of an airplane, CHS Flight School will teach you in a full-motion simulator what you need to transfer to the airplane. Our syllabus was created by us to take full advantage of the strengths of a simulator. You get the repetition in the sim until each task is second-nature, then you go out to the airplane to do the same thing.

You learn it in the sim, you fly it in the airplane – it’s that simple. This reduces the (expensive) time in the airplane. No one can tell you how long it will take you to learn to fly, since everyone learns at a different rate, but we are confident that it will take you less time here, because the simulator will get you prepared much more quickly.

We offer the only flight training in Charleston with a full-motion simulator that is owned and operated by a Certified Flight Instructor and with an all-CFI staff. Our professional instructors can help you achieve your dream of being a pilot- come by and see us!
