“Outstanding program from the minute that we arrived on Day 1. A professional crew, this set the tone for the entire time. From professional crew to the inspired learning, we knew it was good, applicable knowledge. It was a great experience!”

“Without question, Flight Research is the premier aviation training facility I have had the privilege of attending; from top to bottom, their staff's experience in all facets of the aeronautical and aerospace industries give Flight Research the best team to educate and demonstrate maneuvers which push the flight envelope. From the moment I stepped in the door, I was overwhelmed with the state-of-the-art facilities and first-class operation based at the Mojave Air and Space Port. Upon meeting the staff, I was left with no doubt that they are passionate about what they do and provide every resource available to instill critical areas of knowledge to each student. For the three days I attended, each minute was spent talking, breathing and living airplanes; I have never learned so much in such a short period of time.”

“Their pedigree is impressive: it was created by the founders of the National Test Pilot School (NTPS). Their instructor pilots include two Space Shuttle Test Pilots with a combined total of five space flights; two highly experienced Flight Test Engineers from the AF Test Pilot School at Edwards AFB; a full blown maintenance and egress section; and a fleet of about 40 aircraft, including jets, props and helicopters, which comprise the aircraft used at NTPS.”

“In my 27 years as a professional pilot, I have not experienced a more comprehensive course than the one here at Flight Research. I learned more in two days than any other training I have ever had, knowing that I can push the airplane to its limits and recover. The Sabreliner flight was unremarkable; it was very familiar to me like putting on my shoes. The curriculum was spot on, would highly recommend this training!”
