Welcome to The Flying School, northern Colorado's leading flight school. Operating out of Loveland, CO since 1996, we provide a superior aviation education experience in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
We take great pride in our exceptionally well-maintained fleet, which features newer 172s and specialty planes that are cleaner than those found in most other schools.
If you want to become a licensed pilot, we're here to help you every step of the way. Call today to learn more about our flight training courses.
We are proud to announce that Bob Coller has returned to The Flying School as Chief Instructor. Max will be departing to his next adventure in mid-June.

Our flight school instructors are hand-picked for their vast experience and range of teaching styles, assuring each student the best possible partnership. We have both full time and part time instructors who can accommodate almost any schedule and pace of learning. When you take classes with us, we'll make sure you get individualized training from highly experienced pros.
The Flying School is located at the Northern Colorado Airport (KFNL) in Loveland, CO. We're right at the foot of the Rocky Mountains and enjoy over 300 days of clear blue skies. In practical terms, this equates to a quicker timeline for you to become a licensed pilot.
The answer may not be the same for everyone, but at The Flying School we have found that a common obstacle is the written knowledge test. Historically, our students have prepared for this test by doing mostly self-study with individual support from their flight instructor. While this is obviously obtainable, we feel that it can be accomplished easier and faster. We are holding our next Private Pilot Written Knowledge Test Class. This 6-week course will cover all the FAA Exam Areas in a small group setting led by our amazing instructors. Limiting the class size ensures that participants will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and work through those areas that need extra attention. The cost of the class is $399, the required materials retail for $256.03 (students who have purchased the Gleim Private Pilot Kit will already have these items). The first class will start October 17, 2022 and the sessions will run Monday and Thursday from 6pm to 9pm. Please call 970-203-9980 to reserve your spot!
