The right attitude is everything in Flight Instruction. While flight training is fun and enjoyable, the training can sometimes become difficult and frustrating. Since the world of aviation is so new to many beginning pilots, it may take a little longer for certain portions of the training to make sense. At Sunbelt Aviation, our instructors realizes the difficulties students have and work with them to overcome any obstacle they may encounter during their training. Part of our job as flight instructors is to keep the student motivated throughout the entire training process and ensure completion of the program. This is why Sunbelt Aviation has a much lower drop-out rate than the nation average.
