Take AOPA's Flight Training Experience Survey
Now open through October 31, 2022
The survey encourages anyone who has taken flight training in the past 12 months to candidly share their training experiences. Responses are used to measure the overall performance of respondents’ flight training providers and spotlight areas where they are successful and where they have opportunities to improve.
Survey participants include pilots of all experience levels, from new students to those earning advanced ratings or taking a flight review. Check out “4 Reasons to Take the Survey.”
Survey results are used to select recipients of the Flight Training Experience Awards. Distinguished, Regional, and National award winners will be announced at Redbird Migration, April 11-12, 2023 at the EAA Aviation Museum in Oshkosh, WI.
Meet Hannah Smith, the newest addition to our Maintenance Team!
After learning about aviation through her grandfathers, Hannah’s dream to work on aircraft began. She grew up building machines and R/C planes with her grandfather in Colorado and heard about her other grandfather’s career as a pilot. As she went to airshows and talked to more people in aviation, she decided to start flying in 2018 but found that her interests in mechanics drew her in even more throughout her education. Her family later moved to Texas and she attended LeTourneau University in Longview where she was able to earn her private pilot certificate, A&P certificate, and Bachelor of Science degree. She is excited to have joined the team and learn more about aerobatic and Cirrus aircraft.
