Guaranteed Instrument Rating

At Fly Around Alaska we strive to provide the most complete and quality training available anywhere.  We train in the beautiful state of Alaska where your training will be enjoyable and challenging.  

Unlike most schools we believe in completing your training in the aircraft with no use of simulators.  You might ask why we don't use a simulator?  The answer is simple, if things go wrong in the simulator you simply re-start the program and continue.  By spending 40 hours in the aircraft you will be much more prepared for anything you might run into in the air.
