My dad did this when he was around 35? I think. I distinctly remember his first solo. They cut out the back of his shirt and wrote first solo on it. Do they still do that? And beware the addiction, when he retired, he started flying trick planes.....1 day ago John Sweeney

Inflight was the choice that felt best to me because of their rental rates, their planes, and their staff. They are without a doubt the Twin Cities Best Flight School!
I think Inflight has struck just the right formula for a flight school – a friendly no-hassle FBO with quality instructors, very well maintained airplanes, and reasonable rates.
I did my research prior to choosing a flight school when I moved to the Minneapolis and I can highly recommend this school. Friendly staff, low prices, well equipped aircraft in good condition and situated at controlled airport, I couldn’t ask for more!
I got my Private Pilot training here, and it was an excellent experience. The instructors truly have a passion for general aviation, the planes are all clean and excellently maintained, and the per hour rates are easily the best in the Twin Cities.
I completed my private pilot license with Inflight. The instructors were top notch, had a fantastic affordable ground school, and the planes are kept in great condition.
The best flight school in the Twin Cities without a doubt. Nothing is left to chance.
Inflight is by far the best flight school in Minnesota. Their expertise in flight training and ground school puts them way beyond the competition.

We offer pilot training programs of all types. No matter what type of license, rating or certification you’re trying to get, Inflight will make you soar. Here are some of the programs we offer:
Getting your private pilot’s license is a bucket list item for many. If you want to participate in a fun hobby, enjoy unlimited traveling possibilities, or join a great community, a private certification is for you. Inflight will get you to your destination — our track record has produced the best and safest pilots in the country, with a passion for keeping flying fun and affordable for all students.
Is a boring desk job not for you? With our commercial pilot’s license program, your career will begin lift off as you learn how to fly commercial and charter airplanes, crop dusters, or emergency and rescue planes.
Most airline pilots begin their careers as commercial pilots. If you’ve made it this far in your training, you’ll relish in the opportunity to fly with Minnesota’s most advanced pilots at Inflight. We offer comprehensive airline career pilot programs for those seeking the glamorous job flying for a major airline.
When it comes to training flight instructors, experience matters. The next generation of teachers must be as passionate about flying as those that came before. With Inflight, you can accelerate through our program in a relatively short time and be fully prepared to pass your checkrides.
Having your instrument rating will make you a more proficient, competent and confident pilot. You’ll be better suited to land at unfamiliar airports and be prepared to handle changes to weather. Our program can be completed in as quick as 30 days, making you a safer pilot overall.
Simulator training can cut the cost of getting your pilot’s license by a significant amount. A normal lesson would take hours, from the time you show up until you leave. A sim can cut that time in half and for less than half the cost of actually flying. You can also put hours towards your instrument rating through simulator training.
Our accelerated flight training program is designed for the type of person that would like to give flying a try, but is not yet ready to become a private pilot. You’ll fly with an instructor, perform your first solo flight, and earn your instrument rating as you complete tests to obtain your flying certificate.
If you’re closing in on the sound barrier, you’ll need a high performance endorsement in order to act as pilot-in-command for any high-performance airplane. Inflight will soon be equipped with the capabilities of providing high performance endorsements, keep checking back for updates.
We’re constantly getting asked about pilot license prices, and people are consistently surprised about how affordable it actually can be to do their pilot training. Remember that getting your pilot’s license is an investment. It’s a fun way to enjoy traveling or even build a career. No matter how long you’ve been dreaming of flying, Inflight is here to make it a reality. There has never been a better time to get your wings than now.

You can fly anywhere in the greater Twin Cities area — whether you want to fly around downtown Minneapolis, Lake Minnetonka, or even over your own house.
