Sebring Airport Authority is thrilled to announce the first flight training facility in Sebring and their newest tenant, Leading Edge Flight Training School.
Leading Edge Flight Training School is ready and open for business with a Cessna 172 and a Lake Amphibian Seaplane. The school is also offering simulator training on the Redbird FMX, a superior-quality, full motion, Advanced Aviation Training Device. The simulator’s electric motion platform and wrap-around visual offer a realistic training environment approved by the FAA. The state-of-the-art simulator will be available for anyone to try out at the January 24-27 US Sport Aviation Expo.
Owner Brant Howell had this to say about his decision to relocate from Virginia to Sebring, “I chose Sebring because it’s in the middle of everything and options for world class flight training were limited. The Sebring Airport has so much to offer and now a professional flight school is here. It’s a great time to be involved in aviation, the airlines are hiring, and career opportunities have never been better.”
Continued Brant, “ We’re going to be doing seaplane training, which is new for Sebring. We’re excited to be the only flight training operation in Sebring with all these resources and opportunities.”
Down the road Leading Edge will offer flights to the Keys and major airports as an added benefit to customers.
