...FLYING IS THE ANSWER...

*****No other activity matches the challenges & rewards of flight*****


FLIGHT CENTER NEWS................


ACCELERATED TRAINING is here :  Since OFC's founding we have provided unmatched self-paced flight training. But with more and more pilots seeking professional flying careers we now offer another track...accelerated programs to get you to your aviation goals quickly for a fixed cost. See details on the Training page or ask Geoff for more info.


DISCOVERY FLIGHTS to find your PASSION:  Our Introductory Flight packages are perfect for someone who wants to start the flight training process, as those offerings consist of a ground and flight lesson. But some people aren't ready for all that just yet; rather they are just looking to discover what flying feels like to see if it is for them. So OFC now offers Discovery Flights...a casual flight lesson, without the preflight and ground school components, to give you an exposure to flying.  


New FLORIDA BASE and New AIRPLANE:   We are up and running at our Florida location near Tampa. Wimauma Air Park (FD77) is a private field but very open to the public. Its a throwback to the roots of aviation; a grass field with a warm and friendly environment for flying. With our brand new J3C-85 Cub based there, OFC is happy to offer this new training center. 


The THEME for 2022:   Each year we pick a theme to set a culture for the year; in 2022 its GET IT DONE. We are rolling out accelerated flight training so there is nothing to get in your way of pursuing those pilot ratings and getting your career as a pilot started in the shortest timeframe possible.  


DPE SERVICES are available:   Geoff Orlandi can provide many of the DPE services pilots need. Please visit the DPE page of this website for what Geoff can offer to those looking for designated pilot examiner services.


OFC has FREE online SCHEDULING:   This makes it easy and convenient for you to schedule your flights and lessons.

The Redbird Jay FLIGHT SIMULATOR is a great training device:   Come fly it for only $29 per hour.
