BVFS recommends the Aviation 101 primer course for everybody coming to aviation for the first time. Or just stop by! We will be glad to offer an airplane walk around and introduction from one of our qualified instructors. Best-of-all, schedule an Introductory Flight with us. An Introductory Flight is the best way to experience and discuss the world of piloting.
