I am a private pilot student and I looked at a variety of flight schools in the NJ/NY area and Fischer Aviation was hands down the best choice. Here are a few reasons why. 1. Tom and Jodi are very down to earth, approachable and easy to communicate with. 2. The school looks brand new and has all the amenities you could want. Including a state of the art flight simulator for honing your skills. 3. You have the option to train on high wing or low wing planes. 4. It’s based out of a small airport. Which is important because at larger airports you will be paying for airplane time while sitting on the runway waiting to takeoff. 5. Prices are reasonable and they are upfront about them. Some schools advertise FAA minimums which might sound great and are significantly cheaper, however most students need extra time so advertising the costs off FAA minimums paints an unrealistic picture of what your training will actually cost. 6. Scheduling training time is very easy online and they make every effort to accommodate unique schedules. 7. The rest of the flight instructors are just as friendly and approachable as Tom. I have had the privilege to fly with 3 instructors so far and have learned valuable information and techniques from all three. If you are serious about getting your pilots license, or even just want to try a single flight to see if you enjoy it, you owe it to yourself to at least stop into Fischer Aviation and speak with Tom or Jodi. You will not regret it.
