Imagine seeing the world from a whole new perspective. At Grayhawk Flight Training, we utilize the Liberty Aerospace XL2 aircraft in our flight training programs, as well as for other pilot proficiency requirements.
Are you thinking of becoming a pilot or would you like to give the gift of a one hour flight to a friend or loved one? Our certified flight instructor will start with a quick lesson on the ground to explain the basics of the Liberty XL2 and flying. You will then go to the airplane where he will walk you through a pre-flight, to make sure the aircraft is safe and ready to fly. Then, you will sit in the left seat and control the aircraft from the hangar to the sky and all the way through landing, all under the watchful eye of our expert flight instructor.
Once airborne, you and the flight instructor will either take a tour around Dallas or he can show you the basics of flying.
At Grayhawk Flight Training, we would also like to preserve this memory for you, which is why we also offer a video of the flight that you can purchase. Please let us know if you'd like this add-on when you schedule your flight.
Biennial Flight Review
14 CFR 61.56 requires a pilot to conduct a flight review every 24 months, by an authorized instructor, to act as Pilot in Command. Grayhawk Flight Training will tailor this flight review to your mission. We understand not everyone has flown the Liberty XL2, so questions will be made to encompass all single-engine aircraft and also test you on general safety procedures in the air. We will start with at least 1 hour of ground followed by 1 hour in the air. If you are found to be proficient to act as PIC, you will then be given the logbook endorsement. If the CFI feels that you need some additional training, we can arrange time to meet those needs.
The cost of the flight review is fixed, but if additional training is needed, there will be an additional fee.
BFR in your own plane, available by appointment.
Instrument Proficiency Check
As per 14 CFR 61.57 (c)(1), no person may act as PIC of an airplane under IFR or IMC weather conditions without the proper proficiency. If you have exceeded the designated 6 months and would like to exercise your instrument rating, Grayhawk Flight Training can help you gain your privileges back. You will be asked to fly a VOR, RNAV & ILS approach as well as entering a hold and performing a lap. Like a flight review, this is not a pass or fail. If you meet the requirements, you will be given the logbook endorsement. If the CFI feels that you need some additional training, we can arrange time to meet those needs.
The cost of the IPC is fixed and may exceed an hour of flight time, so you will not be billed extra if the 4 required elements run long. If additional training is needed, there will be an additional fee.
IPC in your own plane, available by appointment.
Are you at least a private pilot and looking to save money by flying with another pilot? At Grayhawk Flight Training, we offer a program where you can fly with our flight instructor but he will not provide training. Here you will pay your FAA mandated pro-rata share for the airplane. You can use this time to gain proficiency (landings or maneuvers) or just plan a cross-country flight for a $100 hamburger.
Our flight instructor is also an avid golfer, so with prior scheduling, flying to a golf course, playing a round of golf, then flying home can be arranged!
