The Sky Calls. Will You Answer?
Flight training will enrich your life in countless ways. You’ll learn to balance technical training with the freedom of flying toward an endless horizon. You’ll adopt new ways of speaking, navigating, and calculating your position. What initially feels like a complex process will slowly become second nature, and you will always have a great story to tell. Flying in the Reno area adds to this experience. Since 1988, Great Basin Aviation, formerly Flying Start Aero, has been located at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, in Class-C airspace. This mixed with the mountains, desert, and winds, will put you well on your path to becoming a technical, efficient pilot.
Our Mission - At Great Basin Aviation, we measure our success by our ability to create and further encourage safe, competent, and proficient pilots in the most efficient manner possible. It is our goal to provide flight training with the core values of safety, quality, and integrity.
We offer Northern Nevada’s largest and most modern fleet of rental aircraft (including: model year 2005+ Cessna Aircraft with glass cockpits), Northern Nevada’s only Cessna Pilot Center, most experienced full-time flight instructors, and an instruction path from student pilot to Airline Transport Pilot.
