Frederick Flight Center, is a state-of-the-art training facility located at the Frederick Municipal Airport (KFDK). We are FAR Part 141 and VA approved. We are also affiliated with both the University of Maryland- Eastern Shore, and Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC AVIATION PROGRAM.)
We have trained thousands of pilots while maintaining an outstanding safety record. Our philosophy on flight training is not simply to meet the standards set by the FAA, but to exceed them. At Frederick Flight Center our goal is to train safe and competent pilots.
We are just under 50 miles driving distance from both downtown Baltimore and Washington D.C.. This makes your hassle free flight training experience a lot closer than you may think. Come in at any time during regular business hours and see for yourself.
FUN DESTINATION AIRPORT!!
It is Autumn again and the foliage in eastern PA will reach it’s peak in the next two weeks. Members of EAA Chapter 855 would like to remind pilots in the region that the bike shed at Slatington Airport (69N) is loaded with trail bikes and ready to go. A short ride along the D&L Rail Trail (located next to the shed) to the north through the Lehigh Gap rewards you with rugged mountains rising above the trail, trees in their fall glory and the beautiful Lehigh River below, and lunch is available just a short bike ride south of the airport. So Fly in and take a bike ride or day hike with friends and family in the fresh air of Pennsylvania. The shed (located just short of the gas pump) combination is 1228 and there is a camp ground in the trees behind the wind sock next to the river.
If you, a friend, or a family member, are interested in learning to fly we offer a Discovery flight lesson, for only $99. Its a once in a lifetime opportunity to see and feel what it is like to be behind the yoke (wheel) of a Cessna 172. It is a great first step for anyone who is looking to have a fun or actually pursue in getting their license. Our instructors are very helpful and will definitely get their students engage in flying!
