Learning to Fly

In Northern Maine

The Houlton International Flying Club is not a Flight Instruction organization HOWEVER, we have made arrangements with instructors to help us learn without leaving Northern Maine!

Our Instructors

HIFC has been lucky to find some great instructors over the years

We are always learning! Pilot, Instrument, Commercial, Complex, High Performance - it can all be done in Houlton! We have members at all levels of their flight training and members provide great resources and support in the learning process.

Instructors will typically provide lessons 1 to 2 times per week allowing for multiple students to fly each day. If you're thinking about learning to fly, give us a call and we'll provide the full details.
