Vertical Aviation would like to thank our partners at The Airplane Factory & Sling Flying Club

The Premier Flight School

At Vertical Aviation, we're not thrill-seekers, we're life junkies. And, as far as we're concerned, nothing beats the rush of taking control, and pushing an aircraft through the limitless blue! If you're anything like us, after your first flight, you'll be hooked. Whether you're interested in a scenic tour, getting your pilot certification, or advanced flight training, we're where you want to be!

"Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air....

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
Where never lark, or even eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
- Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
