SimplyFly Flight Instructor School Wins Annual Award for Business Excellence

SUGAR GROVE, IL--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2014) - SimplyFly Flight School, based in Sugar Grove, IL, was recently honored for innovation with the Annual Award for Business Excellence from the Daily Herald Business Ledger. SimplyFly was one of three businesses selected in the innovation category in recognition of their unique flight instruction program, which trains pilots for the newer, FAA-approved, "Sports Pilot" Certificate.

Owner and founder of SimplyFly, David Spano, accepted the award. Spano fell in love with flying when he was 17, and after the economic downturn, he left his position in the construction industry to open his dream business... SimplyFly.

"We are all born with the desire to fly," he said in his acceptance remarks. "For most people, it's either a dream, a goal or a reality. With the new FAA qualifications for sports licenses, it is easier and more affordable than ever to learn to fly, and I am glad we are able to bring that opportunity to so many."

SimplyFly operates out of the Aurora airport in Sugar Grove. They offer FAA-approved instruction for both Private Pilot Certificates and the Sport Pilot Certificate, which is a specialized license for those just seeking to fly for fun rather than commercial purposes. The Sport Pilot can fly a light sport aircraft (LSA) during the day, anywhere in the country.

"The Sports Pilot Certificate can be obtained in half the time and cost of the Private Pilot Certificate," said Spano. "For people who've always dreamed of becoming a pilot, it makes the sport an affordable option for them." SimplyFly also offers light aircraft rental of Spano's two Remos light sport planes, so students need not invest in a plane of their own to enjoy aviation. Alternatively, SimplyFly also offers no hassle Aircraft Ownership Programs.
