Welcome! to the Stetson Flight School.
Stetson Flight School 2021...
Was shortened due to CV-19 restrictions however we managed another very successful season with several pilots achieving their Wings, very few incidents and lot's of good sessions.
We wrapped it up on September 28 with cake, prizes, gift cards for the instructors (generously donated by Great Hobbies and Orleans Hobby) and a draw for a Cessna ARF (Generously donated by Wayne Smith).
Already looking forward to next year for a full season!
Thanks to the Stetson executive, our instructors, Len Streefkerk & the students who collectively make our Flight School the standard by which all others are measured.

The Stetson Flight School Program is now closed for the 2021 season!
We've enjoyed another successful year with plenty of students, successful sessions and pilots receiving their Wings.
The school will begin again Tuesday May 3, 2022 and occurs each Tuesday from 4:30pm until dusk. This of course is weather dependent and relies on the field condition. Continuing from previous years is the option to defer to Wednesday as dictated by the weather (& dependent on student numbers). Keep an eye on this web page for all the information you need during the season including live weather updates on flight school nights (Tuesday’s).
Students who started last year and have not yet earned their wings are invited to return to the school for the 2022 season. There is a limit of 16 active students due to the number of available instructors and actual flying time, slots are still available so register now!
All students must apply via link below and will be added to the student list until the limit is reached. Ater that, they will be placed on a waiting list and contacted
as slots become available.
The flight line is open to current students and instructors only on Tuesdays from 4:30pm.
