Flight Simulation

The one-G foundation is a Cessna 172 cockpit that includes a full set of traditional
gauges, a 1G-650 touchscreen GPS emulator, a King nav/com emulator and an
autopilot and comes with a simulation engine populated with the most recent FAA navdata and topography. It is an FAA approved advanced aviation training device (AATD) that works with the 1G-IOS instructor operating station that allows instructors to create dynamic training sessions and track student progress. With one-G technology, students have the opportunity to practice scenarios that would be impossible to safely practice in the air. It’s affordable, accessible, and exclusive – Code 1 is one of only a handful of schools in the nation that have this equipment. The hourly rate for the one G is $65 with a standard instructor fee of $55.

Excellent Instruction from Small Airport = Focused Learning & Money Saved
Norm and Bill are excellent instructors, each with thousands of hours of flight instruction time. The airport is perfect for learning to fly since it's uncontrolled (allowing you to focus on flying, not on Air Traffic Control), and there are very few other planes flying in and out of the area. Everything about the experience has felt personal (they genuinely care about every student), comfortable (the instructors are very easy to learn from, the airport is small and comfortable), and flexible (working around my schedule and adjusting based on my specific learning styles). Code 1 is 5 stars!
