Flight Training with Rising Aviation and Thrust Flight

At Rising Aviation we know the journey to becoming a pilot is filled with both excitement and rigorous training.

To ensure our students receive the highest caliber of flight instruction, we’ve proudly partnered with Thrust Flight, a renowned flight school based here at Addison Airport.

This collaboration is specifically tailored to provide Rising Aviation students with an exceptional and comprehensive flight training experience, paving the way for them to achieve their private pilot license.

Together, Rising Aviation and Thrust Flight are committed to nurturing the next generation of skilled pilots through a blend of academic excellence and practical, hands-on flight training.

Start Flying Your Junior Year!

Beginning in their junior year, students at Rising Aviation who pursue the Private Pilot License program can start their flight training. 

The first step in their flying journey will be to obtain their student pilot certificate from the FAA. This is a simple form filled out on the FAA’s website but authorizes them to work towards becoming a private pilot.

Then they’ll be paired with a flight instructor at Thrust Flight who will work with them on a regular basis until to prepare for the FAA practical exam. Once they pass the exam they’ll be a certified private pilot!
