THE ROGUE AVIATION PHILOSOPHY
When it comes to flight training, our flight school is going rogue against the status quo and ensuring that our Pilots in Training receive the highest quality training available! That’s why at Rogue, we’ve developed a philosophy toward training that puts safety and the quality of education at the forefront of everything we do.
- OUR CREW -
Ensuring that you receive only the best training available, we put our Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) through a rigorous screening process before offering them a spot on our team. Not only are their skills and abilities evaluated prior to becoming Rogue CFIs, but we invest in our CFIs by providing ongoing training on a regular basis both within the company and by bringing in some of the top helicopter safety experts in the world. Led by Chief Pilot, James Baker, the Rogue CFIs are a team of aviation experts. So, no matter which Rogue CFI you work with, you know you’re getting the best!
- OUR PROGRAM -
Quality education and training is so much more than just sharing knowledge and experience. At Rogue, we know that HOW knowledge and experience is shared is just as vitally important! That’s why we have a Director of Education on staff overseeing the development of our unified training curriculum. With a Masters Degree in Education and an extensive background in developing curriculum, Matt Barnes is leading the charge in creating tools and resources to forge an engaging and impactful educational experience.
ROGUE AVIATION Discovery Flight
Discover your love for flight and aviation by trying out one of our discovery flights! You can go up and fly around in the pilot's seat for 30 or 60 minutes, in either the Robinson R22, R44 or even the R66… (the bigger the helicopter… the more friends you can also take for the ride!)
A Rogue Aviation team member will meet with you, take you up and let you handle the controls… when you're back on the ground, we can answer any questions you may have about flight school and how to become a pilot.
