About Us

Pilot Rise is a flight school located at Hicks airport just north of Downtown Fort Worth. Our mission is to train people to become safe and skilled pilots. We want to make sure each student will be admired by others on how knowledgeable, prudent, and skilled they are. To do so, we refuse to cut corners with the intentions of getting people their pilot's license quickly. We don't just teach you the bare minimums required to receive your ratings; we are committed to training students to become the best in the industry.


There are many types of learners, and here at pilot rise we do not provide "cookie-cutter" education. We personally hone each lesson specifically to your learning style, making the experience enjoyable.

We currently have four instructors. Our instructors are held to a very high standard, and we will continue to uphold our "quality-over-quantity" mindset.

Some people find it odd that we can keep our prices lower than most other places when we have such a focus on quality. Asides from maintaining high quality training, we have changed up the game by incorporating more technology.

We do everything we can to cut down on training costs. Our training programs use online video courses to cut down on instruction costs, improve learning, and get rid of  the need for traditional textbooks.

For pilots renting our aircraft, we use modern technology to cut out the need for someone to hold up the fort. We do this by using online scheduling, an electronic lockbox, and remote billing.


We also use electronic logbooks for logging flight hours. This adds no extra cost, and it mitigates the risk of losing traditional paper logbooks.

Additionally, we have systems in place to ensure each instructor is providing the best quality instruction and service.

Several times each month, we record flight lessons on a GoPro. Each of our instructors review these lessons to discuss ways to improve and become the best they can be. Also, this technique can be used during your training to keep you learning from a flight even after landing.

We strive to constantly improve and innovate to provide the best training possible. We are here to get you flying the right way. Not to get a license, but to become the best pilot you can be.

Come join us for a discovery flight, and discovery your love for aviation. We look forward to flying with you!
