Experience the gift of flying on your own and with others?
Learn to fly a Light Sport Aircraft and get your sport pilots certificate!
You will be guided from the very beginning of ground school to completion of flight training. You can be trained at your local airport with an accelerated course (see below) or you can come to beautiful Albuquerque and fly from a controlled airspace airport or both.
I have a FAA certified “Special” Light Sport Aircraft (SLSA) which means it requires a higher level of maintenance for flight training. Not only does my aircraft have to have a routine annual inspection I am also required to get a detailed 100 hour inspection when that occurs. Safety is our first concern!
There are usually 4 steps to acquiring your Trike Sport Pilot Certificate. 1), 15 hours of Dual Flight Instruction. 2), Ground School and Knowledge Test. 3), Solo Flying and XC (cross country flights) and 4), Your FAA Examiners Oral and Proficiency test.
Please note that these hours are the minimum required hours of instruction your hours may be longer!

There's something very special to see just when the sun peaks its glory to start your day. And somewhat sad when the sun leaves us to night with such amazing scenery.
These flights are as special as the views and there are only 2 available per day.

After a safety briefing we will take off and start the flight with learning the fundamentals of flight.
With the 1 hour flight you'll have just that much more time to enjoy the experience of flying in a unique flying machine.

MY FLIGHT FRIENDS
WHAT MY STUDENTS SAY
Jim Britt opened the skies to me! His thoughtful, easy-going manner brought me to an understanding of how the sky, weather and my flying machine enables flight. His friendly, patient method of training me while we were flying together put me at ease and ensured my flight training was both fun and educational. I would highly recommend Jim Britt as an instructor to anyone! Here’s the ultimate recommendation: my children will be some of his next students!
Clovis, New Mexico
First let me say I was very impressed when I first met Jim. He is more than willing to travel to where you are in order to give you flying lessons. If it weren't for Jim's willingness to do so, I wouldn't have my sport pilots license today.I think the one thing that impressed me the most is his views about safety. He trained me in my own trike but would not set foot in it without going over it thoroughly. He even got a ladder out so he could inspect my wing and he did find a couple small things that were wrong.
Jim is good about finding your weak points and helping correct them, anything from how to maintain altitude during a turn to proper radio use. Jim knew exactly what I needed the practice on in order to pass my check ride.
Thanks for all the help Jim!
Jim Britt is always safety minded and patient, and brings a student to the awareness on how to react and cope with most situations that one might encounter. Learning is a constant and Mr. Britt will help you develop the proper good habits that one should use from aircraft inspection, weather, airport educate, and good all around flying techniques.
Jim Britt is also my friend. This friendship was developed in our love of flying. My love of flying, along with my hanger pal Larry, also trained by Jim, have enjoyed countless hours in the sky traveling to more and more far reaching places that aren't seen from the ground. I would recommend Jim Britt to anyone needing training, or just an endorsement. It is not about the money to him. It is his love of flying, and ours.
