Fixed Wing Training

 

 

We don’t just fly helicopters! JTH currently offers Private, Instrument, Commercial, and Certified Flight Instructor Fixed Wing training. With many years as a professional fixed wing pilot, get satisfaction out of knowing that you will be receiving training by veteran flight instructor.

 

 

 

JTH is proud to announce a new addition to our fixed wind fleet. A Piper Cherokee Arrow complex aircraft with a constant speed prop and retractable landing gear! Below are the rates for our Piper Arrow and our Cessna 172:

*Piper Arrow Solo $155/hour

*Piper Arrow Dual $195/hour

*Cessna 172 Solo $110/hour

*Cessna 172 Dual $150/hour

*Our fixed wing fleet is only located at our Oregon base.

The estimated hours provided are FAA minimums. It is difficult to obtain proficiency in the dual times listed, therefore, for planning purposes it is wise to add 10% to the total price. JTH does not have fuel surcharges and there is no sales tax in Oregon.
