Learn to Fly
Operating an aircraft can be compared to operating many pieces of machinery, or even driving a car. The big difference is that when flying a plane, you can't just stop on the side of the road, or drive with your knees while texting for that matter. You have full three-dimensional control, other aircraft to watch out for, and vast expanses of hard ground to avoid. Great Lakes Air Ventures is capable of teaching you how to safely operate aircraft, and get your Private, Commercial, & Instructor certificate. We are also capable of training you for your Multi-Engine Rating, as well as your Instrument Rating. With your Multi-Engine Rating, you also earn your complex endorsement, allowing you to operate aircraft with retractable gear, controllable pitch propellers, and movable flaps.
Each area of training has it significant purpose and allows the pilot to operate an aircraft with additional privileges.
A Private Pilot Certificate allows you to carry passengers and fly in Visual Flight Conditions
An Instrument Rating allows you to fly in Instrument Meteorological Conditions
