Nashville Pilot Camp registration is now open!

Young, aspiring aviators will be taking flight at Nashville Pilot Camp, June 22-26. Registration is now open at www.nashvilleflighttraining.com/nashville-pilot-camp/, and space is limited.

Nashville Flight Training offers this unique experience, which includes interactive lessons, a tour of the Nashville International Airport control tower, training in a state-of-the-art flight simulator, and – the highlight for every camper – opportunities to take the controls of a real airplane in flight!

Participants learn science, technology, engineering and math concepts while making new friends and gaining valuable experience that could one day lead to a future career in aviation. The camp is geared towards ages 13-18.

“Our 18-year-old took pilot camp. It was amazing! He so enjoyed seeing the tower, the flight simulator and of course, flying!” said Kathryn Reitz, parent of a recent camper. “Wonderful job putting this together. He now has almost 5 hours logged in flight time. Many thanks!”

Every camp participant receives up to two full hours of FAA certified flight instruction in an actual airplane, one hour of flight training in an FAA certified flight simulator, as well as books, maps, and a camp T-shirt.

The camp is operated by Nashville Flight Training, an award-winning pilot-training school based at BNA. The school’s location offers access to the exciting atmosphere of commercial airliners and a variety of general aviation aircraft, allowing students the full scope of experience to fly in any airspace.

Nashville Flight Training was recently recognized as a Distinguished Flight School, a title given to high scoring flight schools from the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association’s annual Flight Training Experience Survey.

Nashville Flight Training recognized as ‘Distinguished Flight School’ by national association

Nashville Flight Training has been recognized for its high standard of accomplishment in flight training by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), the world’s largest aviation association.

Based at Nashville International Airport, Nashville Flight Training has been awarded a spot on the 2019 Flight Training Experience Awards as a Distinguished Flight School, a title given to high scoring flight schools from AOPA’s annual Flight Training Experience Survey.

“This is a huge honor for us,” said Chris Erlanson, President of Nashville Flight Training. “We’re so grateful to our students who participated in this survey and pushed us to the top among all the flight schools in the country.

“I want to give credit where credit is due, and that’s with our exceptional team – our amazing instructors, mechanics and office staff – who help ensure our students achieve their aviation goals. At Nashville Flight Training, we’re passionate about safety, building community, and making sure our students always come first. I think this award is a reflection of that,” Erlanson said.

AOPA’s Flight Training Experience Awards were created to highlight the best flight training the industry has to offer. “Creating a genuine bond with a customer is crucial to creating a positive flight training experience,” said Chris Moser, AOPA’s Senior Director of Flight Training Education. “Based on the direct feedback we received in the Survey, there is no doubt that this year’s winners have connected in a powerful way to their customers. Nashville Flight Training is doing it right!”

The 2019 awards were drawn from flight students and pilots who voluntarily reviewed their flight training experience this past summer through an AOPA online customer satisfaction survey.
