SimplyFly Shares the Dream of Learning to Fly: Getting Started Is Easy and Economical

SUGAR GROVE, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2013) -  The dream of flying is coming to life for more people today who are taking up the sport of aviation. That's because the cost of flying has come down with fewer requirements than ever before. Anyone who wants to reach for the sky can work towards a Sport Pilot License without a tremendous amount of money and flying hours.

"Sport aviation is really inspiring people who always wanted to fly, but didn't think they had the time or money for it," said David Spano, Chicago-area flight instructor and owner of SimplyFLY at the Aurora Airport.

A Sport Pilot License only involves half the time and cost compared to a Private Pilot License. In 2004, the Federal Aviation Association created the sport aviation alternative, and since then, Spano says flying as a hobby has really taken off. He is passionate about helping aspiring pilots to fulfill their dream of flying. "My goal is to dispel the myths that flying is too expensive and is like an exclusive club. We try to make it simple and affordable for anyone -- all ages, men and women. If you really stop and think about it, learning to fly is either a dream, a goal, or a reality. Our goal is to turn that dream into a reality."

It's also now cheaper to own a plane -- a Light Sport Aircraft is much more affordable to purchase and operate. There are just a few limitations regarding number of passengers and night flying. Higher load capacities, faster speeds and larger aircraft are allowed with a private pilot license.

SimplyFLY was started for one simple reason, to teach you how to fly. But we can't stop there. We have to also create the opportunities for you to live out that lifestyle and put your Pilot Certificate to use. We do that through the most affordable Aircraft Rental Programs in the area as well as turning the industry on its head with no hassle Aircraft Ownership Programs.
