VanFleet Aviation

Morganton, North Carolina


Van Fleet Aviation is located at the Hickory NC with satellite school at Morganton Lenoir Foothills Regional Airport in western NC. Flying has been my passion for many years and I enjoy teaching people to fly. I have been instructing since 1986, flew for the University of Georgia and instructed in the King Air 200 for Flight Safety International in Atlanta Georgia before I started my own flight school in 2002. For whatever reason the student wishes to fly, for pleasure, business, travel or to pursue a career in aviation, it will be a safe, enjoyable learning experience to accomplish your goals. I have a total of 7500 hours flying and 4300 hours instructing.

I have two Cessna 172s that I instruct in and teach almost everyday and a Cessna 172 XP Amphibian seaplane that I instruct in for the seaplane rating. The cost for the Cessna 172 is $110. The cost for instruction is $40 an hour for private, $50 an hour for instrument. The Cessna 172 XP Amphibian is $235 an hour with instruction.

The student from the first lesson forward is learning mountain flying as it is incorporated into the instructional program.

All my students use the Jeppesen Private Pilot Kit: FAR Part 61 Kit JS3022009

I will be glad to talk to you about the program. Please contact me. Look forward to flying with you.
