"When once you have tasted flight, you
will forever walk the earth with your eyes
turned skyward, for there you have been, and
there you will always long to return."

Shouldn't it be YOU flying that plane?

   Getting your license means having freedom. You can go anywhere you'd like, anytime you'd
like. Want to visit that family member three states over? Jump in the plan and get there for the
weekend in a fraction of the time. Craving seafood? Clock out on Friday and be at the shore
in time for fresh lobster dinner. The possibilities are endless. Whether you're looking to get your
private license, or go all the way through your CFI ratings, 7:47 Aviation will train you at your
pace, on your time. Our easy-to-use scheduling allows you to select instruction and flight times
that fit your schedule, and the ability to move as quickly or conservatively as you wish means
financing lessons at your pace. From novices to "rusty pilots,' we're here to get the yolk in your
hands and your head in the clouds. At 7:47 aviation, it's always
time to fly!


   Located right inside Chase Field's Main Hangar 1, our flight school offers a lounge area to
prepare flight routes, study, or drop by to play with everyone's favorite airport pup! We also
have two planes available for rental. If you have your own aircraft - then we can train you in
that, too. Looking for storage? Check with us for availability in the main hangar, otherwise
Cortland County for T-hangar rentals on-site.


  Our planes are always kept in top condition and inspected regularly. You will learn the
basics of aircraft care and maintenance so that when you're ready to fly solo, you'll be able to
do so with confidence.

Ground school

    When you're not in the air, you'll be with your instructor in our classroom discussing your most
recent and upcoming flights, material for you to study at home, and prepping for check rides
and written exams. Weather not conducive for flight? No problem. Jump on our flight simulator
and practice those flight patterns.


    Are you ready to fly? We sure are. Call us at (607)662-4505 or Email us to set up your lesson.
