FLYING START AERO is Northern Nevada’s only CESSNA PILOT CENTER and our primary business is teaching people to fly.

We have the largest and most modern fleet of training aircraft in Northern Nevada…and the most experienced flight instructors. While both of our primary trainers offer the latest in digital navigation and communication flight suites, each offers unique features for the student pilot.
We invite you to come in and see for yourself. We will explain all your options, answer your questions and arrange a “discovery flight”, once you decide which airplane is right for you.
