Let's Fly San Diego


Unlike flight schools, Lets Fly San Diego is a group of independent flight instructors who offer flight training in flying club aircraft for those wanting to learn to fly and for those who already have their pilot license and wish to get advanced flying lessons from experienced instructors. As flying club airplanes are considerably less expensive than flight school airplanes, students can save money by receiving their training from independent flight instructors. Additionally, the most experienced instructors become independent instructors so that administrators don't take the lion's share of the instruction fee. This allows them to charge their students less than flight schools. On the other hand, most instructors at flight schools have less than two years flight instruction experience. (see the Independent Flight Instruction FAQ) for a better explanation of why this is.)
