A short story about us

we’re open from:

Mo-Fr 8am to 5pm

Sa 9am to 5pm

You need your tailwheel rating... We do that too.

The Problem

You don't have a tailwheel rating. Your feet sit on the rudder pedals like limp noodles. Your youtube account is full of back country sand bar landings in a tailwheel aircraft. 

The Solution

Getting a tailwheel rating at North Aero in the Luscombe and learning what it means to really fly the ball. Sometimes it seems like the Luscombe purposefully doesn't fly straight just to teach you a lesson.

What our customers say about flying at north aero

I have been flying with Erick for years now starting with receiving my instrument rating. Each flight with Erick increases my knowledge and flying capabilities. Erick has a wealth of information and shares his experiences good and bad with his students to learn from. I can call on him at any time to just chat or ask a question always getting an answer. If he can't answer my question he will research it and will always call back with what he has found. He has a real compassion for flying and teaching, making learning very easy and comfortable. I feel blessed finding Erick and hope to have many more years of flying with him, and consider him a great friend.

Great! Erick and his team are professionals, and it shows.

PETER and HENRY BROWN Private pilot and tailwheel

I completed my Private Pilot check ride with instruction from Erick. Very thorough with ground and flight instruction. I felt confident throughout my experience. North Aero has many great resources to help student pilots who learn in various different ways. Training in the Piper Warrior was a lot of fun and I hope to continue flight training there for future ratings.

Bartley walker private pilot and advanced aircraft training

When it finally came time to fulfill my lifelong dream of learning to fly, it was important for me to find a training program that was as passionate as I was about the endeavor. From the moment I met Erick Teeters and the rest of the North Aero staff, I knew I had found my home in the general aviation community. North Aero has supported my growth as a safe and proficient aviator and future aircraft owner. Erick is all that you could ask for in a mentor. He teaches folks like me how to fly simply because he loves sharing the magic of it. He advises owners on aircraft managment because he has seen the gap that can grow between flying and operating. His training aircraft and equipment are the most well-maintained that I have seen because he wants to set the standard for his students. Folks like me who want to explore the general aviation world are luck that places like North Aero exist!

At North Aero I had an amazing experience with my flight training. I was motivated and encouraged when things got tough, and always had a great time flying. I would highly recommend Erick and North Aero to anyone looking to achieve their dream of becoming a real pilot.
