Debert flight instructors can offer some basic
training for your spouse so that he / she could help in the event of an emergency.
Whether or not your spouse is a pilot or has aspirations to become one, flying is a great way to spend time together. A nonpilot spouse can help with navigation and tuning the radios or simply enjoy the view while en route.
Many people use general aviation aircraft the same way you use your family car—think of it as a family car that flies. For weekend getaways, visiting your children in college, or going on excursions lasting several weeks, general aviation is the way to go. The convenience, flexibility, and fun can’t be beat.
Even spouses who don’t have an interest in learning to fly can appreciate the convenience and flexibility of traveling by general aviation. Vacation destinations can take a day or more to get to by car or airline, but the 166 million people who fly on small airplanes each year can reach these same destinations in a fraction of the time.
