Spring Takes Flight: Experience the Freedom of Flight With Air Associates
By Carmelo Turdo
Another spring has finally made its appearance in the Midwest, and now is the time to get out of the house and into the air. Those of us the in St. Louis, Missouri and Olathe, Kansas metropolitan areas are fortunate to have an Air Associates Cessna Pilot Center nearby to help make that happen. Both locations bring the aircraft and training resources of the Cessna Aircraft Company to student pilots and reliable aviation services to current pilots, renters and aircraft owners. Both locations feature modern Cessna Skyhawks and the Skycatcher Light Sport Aircraft along with advanced Redbird flight simulators. If you have considered flight training, then this is the time to get started. If you would like to upgrade your certificate or get more flight time, there's no time like the present. If you just want to visit with nice people and check out the aircraft, visit either location during regular hours or on special events held throughout the year.
