It's Time to Fly


Where Do You Want To Fly Today?... Overview

Obtaining a pilot license can change the entire definition of who you are, where you live, and where you may easily go.

It provides a shift in geographic perspective of the deepest order. In the most concrete terms, it means that from Palo Alto, CA you can get anywhere in the Western United States in a simple morning’s flight. Stanford Flying Club is a network of people who have joined together to make this possible and affordable. The ability to fly a small airplane is more than a useful skill and an engaging pastime. It is in the most fundamental sense a liberation from the ground. The extent to which this is true is difficult to communicate to those who merely ride the airlines. Learning to fly and obtaining a pilot license provides you the opportunity to look around. Aerial views provide perspectives and details that few share and no one forgets. Added lifestyle options can bring new rewards. The benefits of flight training and earning a pilot’s license and the freedom to travel and save time, are unique and valuable.
