We provide professional flight training services for anyone wanting to learn how to fly and obtain their pilot license in an airplane.
The available courses include Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot, Flight Instructor,Tail Wheel Endorsement and Spin training.
The training methods used by TCMG Flight Training are based on more than 40 years of providing flight instruction at many area schools, which include Piper Aircraft Corporation and Flight Safety Academy.
TCMG specializes in developing sound piloting skills with emphasis on attitude flying using the natural horizon.
We have two great classics in a 1948 Luscombe 8E and a 1968 Mooney A2A Cadet.
Courses provided by TCMG are structured to allow the student to progress as rapidly as their skill level permits while attempting to keep their cost to the minimum required for completion.
The aircraft we use develop strong stick & rudder skills in the pilot. They are strong basic aircraft responding well to pilot who develop the feel for what's required to fly them well.
Many valuable techniques used by glider pilots are also taught such as use of glide angles in managing altitude for power off approaches, effects of wind on glide path, as well as difference between best glide and minimum sink.
TCMG provides training for the Private Pilot Airplane rating using a Luscombe 8E and a Mooney A2A. The student would start their instruction in the Luscombe, which provides an excellent platform for acquiring strong stick and rudder skills.
After soloing the Luscombe, the student is transitioned to the Mooney Cadet for the cross country, instrument, and night flying phases of the training.
Benefits of this approach are the student graduates with strong stick and rudder skills as well as the ability to fly both tailwheeled and tricycle geared airplanes.
We also offer tail wheel instruction in a Luscombe 8E, an airplane with flying qualities well suited to this type of training. The training duration varies based on previous experiences but would typically take ten hours for a pilot with no previous experience with tail wheel aircraft. The pilot receives a tail wheel endorsement after completion of this course.
Loss of Control (LOC) accidents remain a leading contributor of accident fatalities. TCMG offers stall awareness and spin training in the Luscombe 8E with a focus on developing the skills needed to safely deal with unexpected upsets, upsets usually caused by encountering some form on stall. The pilot receives a spin endorsement upon completion this course.
TCMG offers a Commercial Pilot Single Engine Land course in the Mooney A2A.
TCMG offers a course leading to Flight Instructor using the Mooney A2A and provides the required spin training in the Luscombe.
TCMG will also provide training for an initial issuance of Sport Pilot in Airplane using either the Mooney or Luscombe
