Windsock Aviation is a local Pee Dee company that offers aircraft for rent
or instruction. We currently operate a Cessna 172N aircraft with updated
avionics including a Garmin 430 WAAS GPS, MX300 Digital #2 Nav/Com radio, Garmin
340 audio panel, and Garmin Ads B In and Out transponder GTX345 with
Our aircraft is maintained to FAR requirements for aircraft used for rental
purposes or instruction thru the Instrument Rating. Our current plane
is based at the Florence Regional
Airport (KFLO) at the General Aviation
ramp. We are not part of Precision Air (local FBO) but they are great
people who fuel and service our plane as needed. If you are already a
licensed pilot that has met our requirements, flying with us is almost like
owning your own plane.
It's on the ramp at Florence Airport just waiting for you. Schedule
on line and off you go. Contact us today!
While we rent an airplane for student pilots, we are
not a flight school in the traditional sense. We can recommend fully qualified instructors who work with a first time beginner through
advanced ratings goals. These instructors coordinate and manage all your air
and ground instruction in a very personal way. All of their
instruction is personal and tailored to each student's needs and schedule. These instructors love to fly
and teach and it shows.
We strive to keep costs low and are the lowest cost provider for an airplane
of this type and compliment of electronics. We operate all office
functions via email and the web, again keeping costs down, and even utilize
the web for all aircraft scheduling. An approved pilot or student can
see the full flight schedule and pick a convenient flight time without having
to call someone and make an appointment.
