Notices to Our Active Pilots:  



Garmin G5 Attitude Indicator.

Read the manual to become familiar with all the bells and whistles.  However, you can just go fly and treat it like an old Attitude Indicator and you will be fine.  Learn the turn and bank, Speed and Altitude tapes and vertical climb rate indicators later.  All those functions still exist in the original gauges.



ADS-B In & Out NOW ON BOARD!.  Garmin GTX345 

Read the manual before you fly so you will be able to pair the GTX345 Bluetooth with your own Foreflight or Garmin pilot.  This unit will broadcast all traffic on multiple GNS430W screens as well as your personal device, and it also provides up to date METARS, NOTAMS, and Sigmets on your own device.  But you must be able to pair your own device to the GTX345 to make it all work.  Read the manual so you know how to pair to your device before you get to the plane.

January 19, 2017 UPDATE:  Plane has newly overhauled engine and prop, new upholstery and carpet, and refurbished outer panel.  Enjoy!

Who We Are

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 streaming Bluetooth. 

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.
