Spring Happenings at LFC


With the April showers almost past for 2017, it’s a good time to introduce a new season of flying fun for our Lanier Flight Center friends and family…

We’re busy expanding our operations to make it easier than ever for you to reach your aviation goals!  By adding several skilled Certified Flight Instructors and friendly Operations Team personnel at both locations, we are maintaining high LFC standards while increasing our availability.  Our rock-solid state-of-the-industry Maintenance Team is growing with us, and continues to be the reason we provide the safest, most dependable fleet.  Also, we are excited to announce that the process has begun to add new aircraft to the fleet of our growing charter operation, Lanier Flight Express, and we are fortunate to have wonderful additions to our charter crew.  Stay tuned for more details!

At our PDK location, our manager Brian Bera and crew are working to relocate our offices to the Epps side of the field just beneath the Downwind.  Not only will we be closer to our fleet, we will be easier to find.  So, stop by in May to experience our new hangout!

With springtime’s longer periods of daylight providing more opportunities to train, we are adjusting our hours to serve your needs.  Lanier Flight Center is your school; we are your crew.  Ready to help you achieve your mission and view the horizon where it was meant to be…

Where Your Dreams Take Flight!

Shawn Fobas – Private Pilot Certificate (04/26/17)

Please join all of us at Lanier Flight Center in a round of applause for Shawn Fobas, our newest PRIVATE PILOT! Shawn took-off for his check ride in Cessna Skyhawk N393ES and earned the green light from FAA DPE Randy Haralson! We have enjoyed the time with Shawn as a student pilot, and look forward to seeing him use his new ticket to fly! YOU DID IT, SHAWN!

Will Baker – First Solo (04/15/17)


A young pilot in school making time for flight training on the weekends is a young person going places, and Will Baker is no exception to the rule! Will’s consistency and great study habits added-up to hearing his instructor, Rick Cornelison say, “You’re ready for your FIRST SOLO FLIGHT!” Please join all of us at Lanier Flight Center in a big round of applause for Will Baker! GREAT JOB, WILL!

Sam Bagwell – Instrument Rating (04/15/17)

It was a gorgeous spring day, but our friend Sam Bagwell couldn’t appreciate the cottontail clouds from underneath his hood! He was preoccupied with acing his INSTRUMENT RATING check ride! Sam’s great study habits and determination earned him a big thumbs-up from FAA DPE Randy Haralson! And Sam’s instructor, Rick Cornelison, led all of us at Lanier Flight Center in cheering, “OUTSTANDING JOB, SAM!”
