Welcome to GIFT Week, an intensive flight training program designed specifically for women! We understand that many women feel alone or intimidated when pursuing aviation training, which is why we created this all-female immersive training event. Our goal is to provide a supportive and empowering environment where women can overcome obstacles and achieve their aviation goals. During GIFT Week, participants will receive both ground and flight training from experienced female instructors. We believe in addressing the unique challenges faced by women in aviation, including fear, frustration, and a lack of female role models. Our curriculum is tailored to help women overcome these obstacles and succeed in their aviation training. If you can't make it to GIFT Week, we welcome you to visit us at our Vernon location anytime to further your training. We offer regular flight training, as well as assistance with aircraft purchases, upgrade training, and job searching. Our rates are competitive, and we offer affordable housing for non-event flight training. Our program is also committed to giving back to the community, and we welcome donations to help support our efforts. Our hope is to create a network of female aviators who can mentor and support one another in pursuing their aviation goals. Our rates at our Vernon location are as follows:
Primary training aircraft: $80 per hour dry (no fuel) or $130 per hour wet (with fuel)
Instructor fee: $65 per hour
Other aircraft, such as tailwheel or complex multi-engine, have different rates and availability. Please contact us for more information.
Thank you for considering GIFT Week and our flight training program. We are excited to support you on your aviation journey!
