TRAINING & TESTING during COVID-19: Aviation, including flight training, is recognized as an essential service by the Department of Homeland Security because the nation must always have pilots available to respond to transportation and disaster relief missions. So with safety protocols in place we continue to operate at OFC. Please ask Geoff for details.
ORLANDI named 2019 FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR of the YEAR: I am honored and proud to have been selected as the 2019 Flight Instructor of the Year for the Allentown District. The winner is selected by a team of industry and government leaders in aviation training to recognize an instructor who demonstrates the pinnacle of professionalism, extraordinary accomplishment, and dedication to the highest standards in flight training.
Bringing TRAINING & CHECKRIDES to You: We have robust flight training and checkride activity at Blairstown Airport. But don't let that stop you if you want to take advantage of the highest quality training and testing...because we can come to you. Just tell us what you are interested in and we will put a package together so you can enjoy OFC services at your base.
The THEME for 2021: Each year we pick a theme to set a culture for the year; in 2021 its EARN YOUR WINGS. Participate in the FAA Pilot Proficiency Wings Program (WINGS) to earn phases of Wings that can satisfy flight review requirements, earn you a discount on aircraft & rental insurance, and you get a free wings lapel pin. Ask Geoff for details.
