  • review rating 5  My son is an aspiring pilot and he did a discovery flight with CFTAR. It was a GREAT experience and he couldn’t stop talking about it. He really enjoyed learning from Dennis, his flight instructor that day. I was very grateful Veronica was able to set it up. Also, she helped to answer my millions of questions. She is a great resource and such a joy to talk to. She made a great point too, becoming a pilot isn’t just fulfilling a checklist and getting signed off, it’s the journey that takes you to the endpoint that is so unique for everyone. Thank you CFTAR for helping give my son a taste of what it’s like to be up in the skies, in beautiful Marco Island!

  • review rating 5  CFTAR is an incredible flight school that offers many opportunities for students involved in the aviation community. I am currently working on my PPL, and each time I come for a flight lesson or have a day to study with the other students I am learning so much and something new each time. Our mechanics and flight instructors are very nice, professional, and welcoming. Anytime I have a question they are always willing to help me. Over the years that this flight school has grown, everyone involved in it has become like a second family to me. Being a student at CFTAR has helped me become more open and less shy around new people at the airport, and through that I've made amazing friends. Because of this, my flight training has improved and I feel more comfortable and confident when I'm involved in aviation-related activities. I love this flight school because it is a safe space for students of all ages. Marco Island Executive is a relatively small airport which makes it much easier for everyone to know one another and operate as a team, and is especially great for students who are just beginning to fly. Prices are very fair and students are getting quality training they need from passionate instructors who want to see everyone succeed. Our mechanics do a great job in keeping up our aircraft, and are always happy to show you what projects they're working on. If you are looking for a quality flight school in which you plan to earn your PPL, IR, CPL or CFI, then CFTAR will be there to serve and train you in order to help you become a safe and skilled pilot! 🙂

    review rating 5  Career Flight training and aircraft rental has changed my life from a high school kid to a young man. Working with many professionals that are easy to talk to and very humble has changed my perspective of the world. With the guidance and resources provided by this flight school I found my training very enjoyable. I have attended other flight schools dealing with many other instructors and people and I assure you that CFTAR is one of the best. If your interested in flying don’t hesitate to contact the Owner Alan Davis who has given me training in an airplane and outside the plane about life. At this flight school you will build life long friendships and meet many people who come and go. It is one big family who works together to help you reach Your goal wether that is being a new private pilot or all the way up the scale to a flight instructor. Everyone from the mechanics to flight instructors to even the students all work together to make it a very fun environment.
