Aviators, the world over will tell you that there are two types of people in this world. Those who desire to fly and those that do not. If you are in the former category then you have more than likely had the desire since early childhood. Why not just do it?

Redstone Arsenal Flying Activity has northern Alabama’s premier Flying Club where those individuals lucky enough to be in the authorized patron category can learn to fly or take their already hard earned rating to a higher level.

Redstone Arsenal Flying Activity offers safe, low cost flying lessons, professional Certified Flight Instructors, pilot related equipment and services to our patrons. The Redstone Arsenal Flying Activity is located on Redstone Arsenal adjacent to Huntsville/Madison Alabama. We have for our use a very low traffic 7200 feet runway and a manned control tower (daylight hours).

Our goal is to be our patron’s First Choice, and to continue our journey to becoming a world class Flying Club. We train the best pilots out there by providing them the best instructors, facilities and aircraft in one of the best training environments in the world. We ensure our graduates possess the skills, knowledge, and confidence necessary to fly and compete in the demanding and ever changing world of aviation.
