Studying at MFS will cause a major transformation in the character & confidence of a person

Ground Course

Studying at Masters Flying School will cause a major transformation in the character and confidence of a person. It has been our experience that neophytes who have just started training usually enter the premises with a bowed head and the very naive posture. Very humble and shy indeed!

After finishing Private Pilot Ground Course, the student starts actual flying on the Cessna 150 or Cessna 152 types of aircraft. The initial objective is to fly and learn to fly the aircraft of his choice alone. This is called FIRST SOLO coupled with the ceremony of water dousing and blow-out celebration sponsored by the soloist. As per experience, the trainee develops an aura of aggressiveness, confidence and excitement after soloing and the  increase of confidence becomes part of his character and inspires him to get his Private Pilot License the soonest time possible. Another eagle is born and is set conquering the sky.

Solo blow-out maybe rendered but not mandatory. Noteably thereafter, the soloist exudes confidence and is welcomed to the elite world of aviators; pursues to be a professional pilot...
