The Gulf Coast Aviation Flight School Curriculum:
Cessna Pilot Center
Scenario Based Training
We train using the state-of-the-art, scenario-based training program that is exclusively available only to Cessna Pilot Centers. Produced by John and Martha King and their team, this multimedia, internet training program allows students to progress at their own pace and delivers amazing retention of information. The program makes excellent use of the building blocks of learning approach. First simple skills are taught. Then with each proceeding lesson those skills are reviewed and then combined to form more advanced skills. An efficient learning system is formed which will get you through your training with confidence and minimal expense.
While most schools offer a dedicated ground school class which covers course information separate from flight lessons, this program integrates each ground school lesson with its corresponding flight lesson. In addition, the program offers a video preview of each lesson so that the student already knows exactly what to expect before they start spending money in the airplane. This ensures the best allocation of time and money to move the student toward realizing the dream of flying. Cessna/King training programs are available for Private, Instrument, Commercial, and Multi-Engine Ratings. We welcome you to stop by to receive more information and a preview of the program.
We will provide you with the best flight training experience available. If at any time you do not feel that we are offering you the best training that you can receive, we will happily refund you all funds on account not yet used.
We will readily provide you with references from current and past students who have completed their rating in many less hours than the national average. Be sure you ask how many hours it takes students to complete ratings when shopping for flight training, and be sure that the school is able to provide you solid student references.
